I asked for a single shot 8oz latte. They refused to do a single shot on the grounds that their roast and extraction process was perfectly balanced to their drinks (and they were using blind portafilters). I tried both and 8oz and 12oz latte (with their standard double shot). The problem, in my opinion, with coffees bigger than 8oz is... More

On the barista's recommendation I had the goatmeal for breakfast when we stopped here 10 days ago on our way North. It was delicious. Came back for the goatmeal and espresso on our way back South. Still delicious. Very nice baristas. Pleasant college town vibe. Interesting neighborhood.

I met my daughter here for a quick coffee but decided to try the biscuits and gravy too. I had never experienced Vegetarian B&G and I have to say is was FAB! Super nice servers and baristas and great food catering to vegan and vegetarian palates! Highly recommend!

Love the goat! Awesome breve lattes, always smooth and flavorful. Their "goat meal" is quite delicious as well. I make it a point to visit every single day that I'm in Eugene. I travel a lot and this is one of the best places I've been. If you truly enjoy coffee, you'll love the Goat!

They did serve good coffee but I did not care for the service I received. I felt he was impatient with me, although there was not anyone in line behind me.

Not much not to love about this place. The coffee is incredible, they have a good alcoholic drink selection, and the live music is great.

To call The Wandering Goat quirky is really an insult to the rest of Eugene. The Wandering Goat is a perfect coffee shop and partner to Eugene. Its a great combination! The coffee here was good. Strong. The lay out could be better, but it works out just fine. My fiancée had a great seeded bagel and I had a... More

We stopped by here after our morning walk along the river. Had a great nonfat latte. The barista is an artist and meticulously made every cup of coffee he prepared. Had a bowl of their homemade coconut blueberry oatmeal. It was fabulous. Coffee was so good we bought a couple of pounds to take back home.

Had the Borgia. . .mocha with orange (zest?). It was prepared really well. . .better than the average coffee house. Its location is in an industrial area. There are some shady looking characters (and that I just mean that they look like they need to brush their hair, shave, take a shower and tuck in their clothes). I was inside... More

A very deceptive coffee house, excellent coffee, vegan treats and outstanding service. Barristers are extremely helpful and friendly. Enjoy making the perfect brew!
