10:00am, It took a good 25 min to get our coffee and food. Two lattes, two breakfast sandwiches. Friendly but busy. Coffee and food were good, grunge, college, hippy kinda atmosphere. Everything made from scratch. Would go again, sandwiches were great. Coffee nothing special. We sat outside,in the back to eat.

If you want a nice, quick lunch with great coffee and/or smoothies, The Goat is for you. The sandwiches are not your typical BLT or ham/cheese, but much better: creative and delicious selections. A nice place to get away from campus to study and grab a bite (easy walking distance from UWEC). The staff is extremely friendly and helpful.

Free wifi access and good food! We went here during Country Jam and it was a good break from the crowds.

The Goat has a good selection of breakfast and lunch sandwiches and a pretty solid pastry selection. Their coffee is self-serve, but it's definitely not the best cup you'll ever have. I've never personally had their espresso-based beverages, but I've been with people who have and they've seemed pleased.

The goat is a great place to meet friends, and to also study or read. Their coffee is fresh as well as their food.

I've drank my share of coffee throughout my college years and The Goat is to this day, one of my favorite spots. Workers are really chill and extremely nice to talk to. It has recently been redone and has a cozy wilderness feel to it with indoor and outdoor seating. The coffee is fantastic regardless of whether or not you... More

Stopped for coffee/muffin/scone. Great selection of coffee, breakfast and lunch items. All we had was great. Prices are good. It was very busy in there and almost didn't find a place to sit. I'd go back and I recommend. This is located on Water Street which is in the middle of the University Area. On a side note, I found... More

I've gone to a bunch of coffee houses in my travels, and The Goat (in Eau Claire) is one of my favorites. Great coffee of course. But also a good place to get breakfast or lunch. Baked goods for sure and creative breakfast sandwiches - I recommend the "triple double." It's right downtown but worth a visit from out of... More
