I have been going to the Goat for 11 years, and it is no doubt the most unique place in Kingston. Almost all of the food is made in-house (desserts included) and well worth the price- not cheap, but reasonably priced with some cheaper options always available.
The place is over 20 years old, and so it has a quirky charm to it; it's less like eating at a restaurant and more like eating at home. It's cozy.
The staff are not your general automaton service industry folks, they are real people. Go there often enough and you will get to know them. They aren't perfect, but they do their best and work incredibly hard to keep the place alive (it's a cooperative, which require infinitely more work than your typical business model)
Anyway, if you want a boring but reliable experience go somewhere else. If you want a unique place with cool staff and great food AND incredible desserts, then go to the goat.Pros: Cool atmosphere , Safe and inclusive space, Lots of vegan options!
Cons: Old building; minor disrepair
