Authentic coffee and more in Portland, Maine

Welcome to  Sip of Europe located in Portland, Maine, 229 Congress street!

Celebrating 5th Year in business as Sip of Europe and almost FOUR years (the birthday is on the 26th of March)  as a 5 star rated cafe in Portland Maine! (5* out of 5* on Facebook, Yelp, Tripadvisor,  Square, UberEats).

The hours:

  • Tuesday, Thursday 10-8,
  • Wednesday, Friday 10-4,
  • Saturday-Sunday 8-4
Please, check social media (Instagram, Facebook) for the hours of operation during national holidays


Not sure which day is a great day to eat out? Dine in here on Thursdays!

🍭Thursday is the day of amazing deals! You can get two drinks and three crêpes for $4 each through the MEAL for TWO (Plus a nice little tax).

🥞Where else could you get cappuccino after 4 pm and steaming hot food made just for you, for your order, without 35-45 minute wait outdoors +about 15-20 minute wait for food itself (talking about timeline from the time you enter food establishments, not fast food restaurants)?

🍫I understand you don’t know if you are feeling like eating a dessert, a snack or a nutritious course. You can mix and match ingredients in the MEAL FOR 2 and make a flavor combination according to your taste.

🥤Not that hungry? You’re still winning with Thursday’s low prices for popular drinks and crêpes. Get the cappuccino, latte, cold brew for 2$ or the food best seller Italian Fiesta for a fraction of its normal price… or Strawberry Nutella crêpe… or elegant Lemon Power crêpe (everyone’s favorite choice).

Cafe won the Portland Phoenix award for best Crepes!

Making cakes, crepes, delicious drinks!

Working with great LOCAL delivery 2DINEIN and also with Uber Eats!

  1. My name is Justin Vigeant. I am a supervisor at Martin’s Point Healthcare on 891 Washington ave in Portland. I work in health plan operations and we provide health insurance to active duty military families, retired military members and their families and we also service the aged population through our Medicare Advantage plan. I was in OOB this summer and had a great beverage from your cart. I love the idea of a mobile barista! I know that you close for the season, however I was wondering if you would consider doing a corporate event? Customer Service week is October 5-9. I thought it would be great for our employees to be able to order a great beverage from you. I was wondering if you would be interested in doing something like this. I have a few ideas that would make it feesable for us. The cost would be paid for by the company. Would you be interested in coming to our building to discuss this possible colaboration? We would love to work with you if this is possible. We have three weeks to prepare for this so if you could respond sooner than later that would be great. I look forward to hearing from you!
