Biscuits and gravy - biscuits were dense and hard, gravy was barely tolerable but lukewarm at best. Cinnamon roll was very hard (a few days old?) and they were not interesting in replacing it. Coffee was OK at best. Quite disappointing. Our last visit.

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...More
