The Laughing Goat just feels like a Boulder staple. Students talk about meeting there, other Boulderites will know what you’re talking about. If you’ve gone to CU and haven’t tried it, you probably should. There is a location on Pearl Street and in Norlin Library on campus. Either way, you’re going to run into a pricey fancy coffee (which is just becoming a trend) and okay drip coffee. The Pearl Street shop will make you hungry upon arrival, as it smells delicious and has treats that look amazing.
