The Wandering Goat
Local artists and musicians wander in and out of The Wandering Goat, a coffee roaster that doubles as a performance space in Whiteaker. Garden chairs sit out front, while inside a shaggy-haired stuffed goat head, his horns rising dramatically out of his hard, black head, eerily eyes customers coming in for espressos, organic chai teas and kombucha. Producing pastries in its own bakery, the cafe has worked its way into local hearts with a popular biscuits and gravy plate, not to mention the peanut butter bars. Wine, mead, local beers on tap and 20 organic bottled beers keep people loose during regular evening music shows.
