Once again the interior in Quantum had been updated and the lighting is so much better. There are new tables and chairs downstairs at the back. The menu is still the same as well as all the services.

Description
Proudly independent, Quantum Web Cafe is Reading's longest established Internet Cafe, first opening our doors in February 2000. Since then, many updates, services and decor changes have occurred, but we still pride ourselves on excellent service and a friendly atmosphere, whether you're using a PC, or just coming in for coffee or a meal. The first floor consists of PC's, Xbox and a hire-able private office for sole or for meetings, and the ground floor consists mainly of cafe seating (including tables outside) but with a few PCs for quick access. Quantum was runner up in 2011, 2012 and 2013 in Reading Retail Awards and winner in 2014 of the 'Favourite Coffee Shop' category. Come and try our quirky little cafe and watch the world go by!
