This is our local cafe. The service is always delivered with a smile by the friendly staff. Food is fantastic and coffee even better. This place always has a fantastic vibe that is buzzing with people coming and going from Cyclists, runners to morning catch...ups with friends. If your in the area I highly recommend this friendly local.More

After a busy morning we decide on a brunch before heading to the movies. We arrived around 11:00 am and found the place was still quite busy we people already seated and eating and others arriving to eat. Tables are limited inside but there are...two or three long tables outside which will accommodate big groups/families or allow couples or singles to share while social distancing. As per Covid requirements you must leave details in writing or using the QR code provided. We ordered the GReen Pea Fritters and The Goat Herder's Breakfast which was ample for both of us along with two freshly made juices. Services was prompt and friendly and the food and drink was very good. I certainly recommend this place for a snack or light meal although the Herder's brekkie was BIG.More

Grabbed an avocado on toast for my 5 year old and when I questioned the $13 got a refund of $7 & instead paid $6 for 1/4 avocado and a slice of white bread. Must've been the highest profit meal if the day. Won't be...going back.More

Love going here for a coffee and scones. The jam they serve with the scones is homemade and so good. Coffee is great, always had great service here, and the atmosphere is nice - I hope the new Ottos doesn't hurt the business, as it...is a nice little coffee shop, that had a nice feel every time I visitedMore

Always great coffee at Spirited Goat - which is now be crowded by a new large competitor. I suggest you get your quality coffee from Spirited Goat when at The Precinct in Idalia.

I'm sorry no replied to you KosieDesign. I have been going here regularly for the passed year and it is common to see customers sharing a coffee with their pooch. The staff love well mannered pets and so do I.
