    Is it necesarry to describe it as the black version of something white? Is our greatness not enough to stand alone?

    1. It’s not a comparison in the manner in which you are taking it. However, it is a statement that this place has all the greatness of Starbucks, with additional soul.

        OMG! Bro. this review was one of the funniest I’ve read! LOL! I was in here laughing so hard! Thank you for shedding light on us instead of the negative candor I normally read/hear about black restaurants and eateries.

    2. Allania Moore says:

      Any hopes of Sip & Savor Chicago coming south west? There is a great spot by 87th and Kedzie where a Starbucks abandon the community when Black residents started to populate the area. There are working people who prefer options other than Dunkin Donuts and McDonald’s. Please pass this information along as an opportunity for expansion!

    Thank you for giving me the absolute best laugh that I’ve had in while just from reading an article. I laughed so hard I had tears streaming down my face and could barely breathe. I needed that after a rough workweek!! ????????????

    Thank you for sharing your candid and informative view of Sip&Savor. I’d love to come check out the place myself. Hope that they would like to expand to other states as Ohio, (Cincinnati respectively ) could use a nice coffee spot that affords superb customer service and doesn’t have you feeling less than after you have spent your hard earned money on supporting their business. (Starbucks)
    I also love the fact that they are black owned, and focus on giving back to the community in which they profit from. Well done and thank you!

    I drink Starbucks daily but would much rather give this Black owned business my hard earned dollars. Only problem, I live in Benton Harbor/ St. Joesph Michigan…. They should think about expanding outside the Chi….. Very good article though!

  5. Steve says:

    Can investors franchise your business?

    1. I will put you in contact with the owner. I am a blogger and unfortunately didn’t ask that, but you now bring up a good point. I need to start asking that and including it in my articles when applicable. Thanks for reading and don’t forget to like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram!

        I would love for them to open shop in West Palm Beach but they said “No”!????????????????????????????????????

  6. Rendella Taylor says:

    Thank you so much for your excellent review, I am ashamed to say that I I’ve so close to the sip and savor and was not aware of this gem in our community. However, beginning today I will make it my business to patronize this business

  7. MiMi says:

    Great review and also very entertaining ????
    You’ve made me totally interested! I’m bookmarking sip & savor now for my next visit to Chicago. Thank you much for sharing. I love what you do!

  10. Marie says:

    I would like to receive info. Thank you.

    I love this. A black man got 3 locations for his cafe now. I’m glad to see that black owned businesses are growing all over America. This brother has a business so popular and so successful that his customers in Bronzeville followed him to Hyde Park and demanded he come back North. That’s powerful. So with that being said, that destroys the myth that black folks don’t support black owned businesses. Not true as we see here.

  12. Man! Glad to see another Black Owned company in the coffee world getting it done. I’m the only black coffee roaster in Indiana. I get it done! Also, #1 Coffee Shop in Indianapolis.

    I won’t hold it against you that you’re a Sigma… Que Psi Phi until the day that I die brother! Get it done. Love what you’re doing for our people.

  13. Terry says:

    Your review had me hollering!!!! ???? Thank you though because Living and working in the south suburbs, I had not heard of Sip and Savor, now I plan to make it my business to patronize at least one of his locations! Thanks again black man!

  31. Asha Esterline says:

    Sip & Savor is YUMMMMY! How can I contact you personally about another black owned business?

  32. Andre says:

    This is the funniest description of farting I have ever heard!! So glad to hear of this shop and I would definitely rather spend my hard-earned dollars with my own people!!

  33. I just tried sip and savor to go alongside of my breakfast this morning and omg I must say your shake mocha took me on the adventure of a lifetime of pleasure just with the first sip. You all are truly divinely innovative. God bless your business! I will now remain a loyal customer. Dunkin who?..????????

  34. By the way this is by far the first truly professional and black owned business that offers quality services that I’ve patronized. Other places I’ve been have let me down with our people owning and operating but your business sets the tone for how our businesses and black people should be please keep it coming !
