“Not quite my cup of tea.”
Reviewed 11 December 2013

Cleanliness was not up to scratch and the atmosphere was a bit studenty-rowdy for my liking. Staff were O.K.

“Great for students!”
Reviewed 7 December 2013

I spent my whole first year of university wondering whether it was worth going into Quilliam Brothers as i just assumed it would be a standard coffee shop.
When i finally ventured in this year i was shocked! The atmosphere is so relaxed, and the tea and cakes are to die for. The late opening hours are perfect for students looking for somewhere nice to relax and work, and the seating options downstairs are so cute! There are beanbags and stools, and even a small area with cinema type seats.
Definitely worth a visit!

“love it!”
Reviewed 6 December 2013

Love this place. Very cool vibe and yet totally unpretentious. Have been twice this week its so good and both times had divine tasting teas and on the second time had an amazing peanut butter brownie! The staff were polite and helpful and the atmosphere was so chilled. Fully deserves the five stars and I look forward to working my way through lots of teas...
