The First SippChai Cafe (the OG SippChai) opened its doors Dec 1st of 2011. The idea was to be an alternative to the mainstream way of things.  Today, life is busy on the go. Fast pace, fast service, fast food, deadlines, and drive-throughs. Where people don’t have the time to sit and enjoy their beverage anymore. And, even if they do decide to stay and relax, the seats are always hard and uncomfortable! Well, not here at SippChai Cafe. Every seat in the house is comfortable. Almost like a living room away from home.  Being Indian, we put our focus on Chai (tea). The tradition of Chai is an old ritual. When guests come over they are always greeted with Chai. It’s a time of sitting back and enjoying the moment. Whether to be social or just sit back and relax. We do offer more than just Chai. Serving all local products, we have Ethical Beans Coffee, Birchwood Dairy Ice Cream, Krispy Kreme Donuts and some homemade food such as Wraps, Soup, and Butter Chicken. Breakfast Lunch and Dinner. Open 7 days a week.

It was 2 cups of tea, one in India and one in Germany that help change my perception in life. Now our slogan is, “Helping change Lives one Cup at a Time”.   We are very community oriented and sponsor/donate to many causes.

Come me check us out. You will be back.

We stumbled into this cafe by accident - by all accounts it should have been closed, as we came in after closing hours, but the owners and proprietors were kind enough to brew up two of their chai lattes for us, as well as being patient enough to explain the process and options available. Add to the fact that it's a lovely, cozy space with a relaxed atmosphere and you have a winner of a coffee spot here. Check it out!

Jas has provided an amazing and welcoming environment to everyone. While the drinks and service are fantastic, the opportunities that he has provided to performing artists of all types is what really makes this place (and the artists) shine. He clearly has a love for the community, and that showw in everything that he does.

Fantastic Chai! Friendly owner and relaxing interior. Outside tables are fun for casual meetings with friends. Even though it's pretty noisy in the area, you can still hear each other well enough to engage. Convenient location if you're headed either direction on highway 1.

One of our families favourite places to stop and enjoy a cup. Always exceptional service and a warm atmosphere. Today we stopped by twice. The second time to have their wonderful Chai milkshake. Yum.

Found this little gem while out for a drive. We weren’t sure from the signage outside but we thought we’d check it out anyways. Cute place! Eclectic decor, super friendly owner and my chai latte is damn good! Hubby said his coffee is good and so is the cookie! Worth checking out! Added note: I should mention that they offer house made butter chicken which we didn’t order! Drat!! Next time!

Hands down the best Chai I've had. My Starbucks Chai latte's just don't cut it now. I love the involvement in the community as well, and the events planned in the cafe. Keep up the good work! 🙂

You can tell the owner really cares. We went in for a coffee on the way to camping and he was super friendly, not in a fake Starbucks way. I ended up getting the chai and it was seriously the best chai I’ve ever had! My partner got a latte which he said was alright.

It really is the best. Cozy atmosphere, more teas to choose from than you could ever choose from, and ownership is pretty great, too! If you haven't been, you've gotta go. I'd give 10 stars outta 5 if I could!

I needed a place to study and was not from this city. This place was a total hidden gem. Big comfy chairs, an extra charger for every phone, gender neutral washrooms, relaxed/ laid back atmosphere and the owner is funny! Good coffee/tea and super accommodating! You should definitely check this place out!

Cozy and inviting. Coffee is fair trade and organic, but they are really known for their excellent Chai drinks! Staff makes you feel welcome and encourages you to stay. You'll want to stay to try more than one of the vast selections of teas. Good luck picking one. Or just go straight for the Chai!

Once you go, you won't help becoming a returning customer! Love it there, best customer service in town, good prices and the most delicious chai tea and butter chicken. A real authentic gem in Abbotsford and you'll love the atmosphere. Good place for groups or by yourself and a perfect place for a nice date!

Jaz is great! He knows and exemplifies customer service better than any other business owner I know. As you might expect, the chai is excellent as well. While sometimes it is a bit crowded, it offers nice atmosphere and very comfortable, even cozy, seating.

Locally owned with plenty of seating. If you're looking for a quick stop or a place to settle in with some friends, SippChai is worth the trip. If you come at the right times of year, there are even festive decorations. Plenty of tea and coffee options, but it doesn't stop there. Soups, milk shakes, food options and more are all available. If you're looking for something a bit less commercial, they won't disappoint.
