Try the white caramel oreo

Nice chain of cafes but quite expensive. The White caramel Oreo from their frappe range is delicious! It's probably a gazillion calories but worth it for a treat!

I'll start with the positives as it is a nice chain of coffee shops. It is one of the very few coffee places open before 12noon on a sunday. The smell of fresh baking and coffee is delicious - it made it impossible to walk past. We ordered hot drinks and a raspberry bake, all good quality and very very... More

Visited here recently with my Mum. I had the strawberry chiller which was only ok, wouldn't get again. My mother had tea and a caramel shortcake. Caramel shortcake was only alright. Staff didn't seem too happy to be there. Quiet, no atmosphere. Won't be returning in a hurry.

Coffee tastes of nothing really, thought it might be different to other Gloria Jean in the world but it's not.

I wouldn't eat here but they do the best white hot chocolate ever! A bit pricey like most coffee joints these days but good for a treat

The food selection is not great and massively overpriced. Atmosphere wise it's got that starbucksy/insomnia large chain vibe. The sweet snacks are better but again not cheap for what you get. The coffee is decent but you can get superior coffee for half the price elsewhere. I would recommend filter or gulped, for coffee/snacks above here anytime.

Gloria Jeans is a great cafe to get coffee and other hot/cold drinks, very good fast service, option of seating or take away. Quite expensive but worth the money for the great quality of the produce.

I was in an urgent need of good coffee around 6 pm last Monday. Most other places were already shut and I decided to go into this one. Ordered a large coffee, which turned out to be just perfect (the right temperature, not under or over extracted, which are btw the main problems in other Cotk coffee places I went... More
