    Not just a coffee shop but a place to spend time, meet friends, and enjoy a community. Serves beer and wine and often has live events like jazz and poetry. Must see!

    Excellent coffee, but lots of students with MacBooks, drinking water, taking up all the seats.

    Lots of sitting space, fast Wi-Fi, great iced coffee. They also have musicians some nights! What more could you want? Try the Iced Toddy Coffee w/ soy milk.

    Great musical guest - didn't know who they were and we stayed the whole night. Wine pours are very small.

    Always live music in the evenings and one of my favorite mocha spots in town. Nice blend of chocolate and sweet for my benchmark beverage.

    The Goat hosts music most nights in an intimate café setting. The venue brings in singer-songwriters, folk artists, jazz performers and indie bands. Stop in some night without knowing who's playing!

    New happy hour tapas plate is ideal! Try it.
