In the greenbelt oasis of Boston's Post Office Square, Sip Cafe's sunny seating area and green interior blend seamlessly into the surroundings. The coffee at Sip is phenomenal in terms of taste and origin. Only one vendor, George Howell, supplies Sip's entire selection of their single origin house coffee. Be wary though, Sip specifically uses a light roast that packs more caffeine into a cup than less zealous coffee fanatics are used to. With a whole range of sandwiches, soups, and other snacks made from local produce, Sip Cafe is the perfect place to get a real feel for Boston life.
