Sleepless Goat Cafe is a workers cooperative coffee house serving up affordable fair trade coffees, desserts and vegan fare. They have good homemade desserts (on the rustic side) in Kingston and decent quality coffee (not the best quality, kind of on the mid-range).
This is a great place for coffee and dessert (I find there vegetarian menu too greasy 😕 ). It’s a local, organic menu, with fair trade coffee. If you are an avid coffee drinker, you will appreciate and understand the importance of good foam milk. Sleepless goat not only serves good quality coffee, they also produce very good foam milk with uniform tiny bubbles throughout. Once I had a beautiful heart-shaped latte heart on a heart patterned cup. The ability to draw latte art is a good indicator that the microfoams are at its best. Sadly I deleted that photo 😦

3 in 1 Blueberry, Raspberry & Red Currant Pie with Jasmine Tea
Blueberry Strawberry Cheesecake with cappuccino
I am not a big fan of American cheesecake, but I’m very impressed by their cheesecake here. The crust is not the usual graham cracker crust and taste a bit like a tart crust. The cheesecake layer is very delectable without feeling very rich. It’s not perfect however. And as much as I liked the crust, the cake-to-crust ratio is also pretty horrible.
Note: Occasionally you might receive an overbaked cheesecake 😦 It could be a hit or a miss – seems to have problems with consistency.
