I love this little place, its fast becoming one of Ottawa's coffee institutions. Situated in an industrial park it is an unlikely place of a coffee (and sometimes bar). The ambience is a bit on the austere side but there is an eclectic mix of chairs and couches to provide a place to sip you drink. Take out is an... More

Happy Goat is my go-to place for coffee in Ottawa. I've never had a disappointing espresso and I can confidently say it's the best coffee I've had in Ottawa in comparison to the other joints. The environment is really laid back and relaxing - it gives off a homey living room vibe. I recommend for everyone to try Happy Goat... More

It's great to find a place hip enough for hipsters, grandparents, paramedic's and everyone else. Great local coffee, awesome vibe and music.

Recently had an Americano and an Earl Grey scone. The scone was light and crispy on the outside. It had probably been made within an hour. I came here for the coffee and it did not disappoint. The Americano had a very nice crema and the taste was rich without being over roasted (like some chains out there). These folks... More

Met some friends here for a latte on a Saturday morning. Was welcomed and placed my order. The latte was made with care (and a cute design in the frothy milk) and delivered to my table. I paid on the way out. This little spot has a casual vibe and is very relaxed. The price for a very nice latte... More

We really like "The Happy Goat experience". The staff and owner are friendly and passionate about what they do. It is a great space, in an industrial area - and you wouldn't find it unless you were looking for it. The clientele tend to be down to earth and unpretentious, which is a plus. There is also lots of comfortable... More

I had a pleasant experience buying roasted coffee beans at Happy Goat for the first time. The staff were very helpful. They allowed me to try different coffees before deciding what I wanted, and explained their in-house roasting process. They roast on Tuesdays and Thursdays if I remember correctly.

Yes this coffee shop/roastery is hard to find but well worth the effort to find it. The atmosphere is eclectic as it is in a former garage but it is a very comfortable space to be in. The staff are very committed in good service and a friendly atmosphere. Looking forward to trying their roasted coffee beans to take home

If you like a great cup of plain old regular coffee without all the frills and chills this is your spot. It has an interesting urban vibe - not posh or trendy. Great place to catch up with friends.
