“Good arts centre in ideal location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

This is a good place to drop in if you are in the Market Place. the contemporary art exhibitions are always thought provoking. The cafe is a good place to chill out after shopping or before the pubs open. The jewell in the crown are the 2 cinemas, offerring Indie films at very reasonable prices.

“The worlds shortest review of the quad cafe”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

'Great burgers. Awful pancakes.'

Oh and my cranberry juice was gross.


The art was lovely and my first visit in july (when I had my yummy burger) was great because i was treated to an unusual and unexpected performance by 'Alex Charles' (formerly of Thee Moths) and ' albino slug'

so overall I think the quad is fabulous just avoid breakie

“Alternative to the usual coffee shops”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Situated right in the market place in Derby, Quad is a great place to go for a coffee or lunch particularly on a nice sunny day where you can sit outside and what the world go by or enjoy the entertainment that is sometimes happening in the market place. Coffee and cake prices are reasonable and the choice of light lunches is good.
