Best coffee in Townsville

The Goat easily and consistantly provides the best coffee and best service in Townsville. The food is always prepared well and delicious. If your looking for really good atmosphere and you only enjoy really good coffee, this is the place.

I had been past this establishment often, but only recently stopped in for a Lifestyle Breakfast and coffee. I dined inside, which was quite noisy, but there were also tables outside. The breakfast consisted of nice poached eggs, manufactured ham, which is a salty, flavourless substitute for the real thing, about a tablespoon of avocado, spinach, toast and highly acidic... More

I was desperate for a coffee when I discovered this place on a work trip to Townsville. It is hands down the best coffee I've found in Townsville. The food was pretty good, it's obviously very popular as the wait was quite long! I would highly recommend.

What a wonderful yet completely unexpected surprise of a restaurant this little place is. The Spirited Goat is situated at the rear of The Precinct in Fairfield Waters, beside the gym complex. It is an understandably popular venue and we often frequent this cafe for take away coffee. Today we decided to head on over for a 1030 sit down... More

Brilliant breakfast menu. Coffee and juices sensational. Very small selection of Turkish rolls for lunch - but all looked yum! Very friendly staff. No high chairs.

We found The Spirited Goat by accident when the McD failed us while on a road trip to Cairns. Imagine McD running out of soy milk - ridiculous. So we drove around the corner and found this cafe, thank goodness. The breakfast was good as was the coffee.
