Sip Beirut: My new favourite place for coffee in Gemmayzeh

Sip Beirut opened its doors only a few months ago, and every time I visit, it’s packed! Unless it’s 8am – on a weekend.

The ambiance is super laid back and trendy with very minimalist décor. The staff is so friendly and down-to-earth.

Plus, they’ve got free Wi-Fi and a gender-neutral bathroom, which makes them cooler (I think).

Sip Beirut makes a good cup o’ coffee. Wait, not good, great! The first time I enjoy black coffee (BLACK!) without any milk or sugar. Yup, it’s gotta be great.

I’ve only tried the Drip Coffee (7,000 LBP). Every. Single. Time. I haven’t tried anything else guys, so I’m sorry I have no additional info on the other drinks they offer. The coffee is just so good (and I still can’t believe I like black coffee).

There are 4 coffee blends currently on offer. From light roast to dark roast coffee: Ethiopia, Kenya, Mexico, and lastly, Nicaragua.

The cakes on display speak for themselves. Every day, a new freshly baked goods selection tempts you to indulge.

I’ve tried quite a few (i.e. a lot of) cakes and my favourites are the Chocolate Chip Banana Bread and Carrot Cake. All cakes are made fresh daily by Dana Berro. You guys HAVE to check out her mouthwatering creations on Instagram.

I never tried the cookies on the counter, because I don’t trust cookies. If they’re not soft, no thank you. And we can’t just go around touching the merchandise to test for squidgyness. Does anyone feel this way too?

Anyway, I ended up trying 4 different cookies. I have great will power. They’re squidgy, and soft, and moist, and and… I can’t. Try the cookies.

You can also order a la carte from the menu. Sip Beirut serves breakfast all day! (YAAAS)

I would highly recommend “What My Ex Eats” (12,000 LBP), which was ever so fresh! Apple slivers hidden by thick Greek yogurt and topped with more fruit, homemade granola, and organic honey. Exceptionally tasty.

I also hear the Halloumi Bagel (9,000 LBP) is good, but I haven’t gotten around to trying it – yet.

Final Verdict?

True coffee lovers will enjoy this trendy neighbourhood cafe in Gemmayzeh.

If you’re looking for a chill place to get some work done, hang out with friends, or have a coffee date, then Sip Beirut is for you.

My advice? Definitely get to Sip Beirut early to secure a spot on their cozy zen-like outdoor terrace 😉
