Web cafe. Knowledgable staff. Free WiFi. Good Food. Licensed to sell alcohol. Printing, laminating, scanning, gaming (upstairs is best), welcoming atmosphere. Smoking tables outside. The Gents is a scream (have a look). Private work room.

Was looking to have some breakfast and whilst taking a short cut from Friar Street towards Broad Street via "smelly alley" saw the Quantum café. They had a board outside showing breakfasts that they serve so decided to go in. As you enter on your right there is a display counter with selection of cakes, muffins etc. The looked absolutely...

I've lived in the Reading area for years, but today was the first time I'd paid a visit. Just what was required on a Sunday morning before doing a spot of Christmas shopping. Friendly service, nice relaxed venue and the two cups of tea and sausage sarnie were very good value. One suggestion...I wouldn't bother with the crisps and slices... More

Thank you so much, Dave, for your review. As we always say, we really appreciate the time people take actually logging in and writing a few lines about our little cafe. I'm glad you enjoyed your visit, we're very proud of our team there! The sausages are freshly made by hand every day from the local butchers and they never... More

Quantum cafe just gets better and better. Current staff are very helpful and polite. Food is a mixture of coffee-shop style snacks - muffins, cakes etc, or cooked pub-grub type food, baguettes, melts, fry-ups, cheese on toast that sort of thing, but is always tasty and much much cheaper than going to one of the corporate chain outfits. And now... More

Thank you, Guitardog, for your time. I know you have reviewed us before and we really appreciate the updated viewpoint. There's been a lot of work done over the last six months, although most is behind the scenes, but the credit has to go to the long serving team who seem to be going from strength to strength. I'm really... More

An amazing little find right at the heart of Reading and located along one of Reading's most historic alleys! Brilliant service and great food! There is always something interesting going on at Quantum. The team really put a lot of thought into their service and how to stand out from the crowd! Love it - definitely worth a visit or... More

This really is a fantastic web café. It's hidden, off the main street in an alley, but once you find it you will love it as much as I do. It's really easy to use the computers and internet here. You are given a laminated set of instructions when you arrive and you are only charged for the time you... More

Popped in for tea for two. Lovely little cafe tucked away from the crowds. The tea was ordinary but milk in a jug!

Thank you SO much for taking the time write a review, so important for us little independents! We DO have a range of herbal and specialty teas by Twinings, but we keep our 'normal tea' (for want of a better word!) nice and simple, PG Tips in fact! Thanks again, and hope to see you soon. Jason.

Nope, I know you're protesting in front of your screen,but it's true there exists an independent cafe that isn't owned by some American fat cat or dodgy mafia! Hidden down smelly alley,it is a public service as it smells divine! Cheesey toasties,freshly ground coffee , sizzling bacon from the local butchers and the one and only QUANTUM MELT! : P... More

I definitely recommend going to Quantum Web Cafe! I was searching for somewhere to print, and was told about this place, and I will certainly go back again. The service was friendly, the price was decent, and I even had time to sit and have a coffee. Very pleased.

Firstly, i have to say that as i don't have a personal computer, and was ignorant of the other internet cafes in Reading, i was dependent on this internet cafe for quite a while. I don't go often, but when i do, i don't see how the cafe acheived its '5-star' rating. It's not even a 2-star cafe. Now i... More

When we started reading this we were devastated given the effort we put into our reputation and service. However, as we read through it became clear this is very probably made up due to the number of physically impossible things mentioned and have reported it as such to Tripadvisor. However, it will probably remain in the public domain as it's... More
