Hands down the best the best coffee you will ever have. I drag hubby out of bed every Saturday for it without fail. Quentin鈥檚 is such an asset to the coffee industry - you will never find a better coffee 鈽曪笍 馃い.

ZERO CUSTOMER SERVICE馃憥馃徎 Arrived for a coffee with coffee with our little ones. Straight away without a hello, i got a 鈥渃an i help you this is an espresso bar we only serve coffee鈥. Taken aback already by the cold welcome we pressed on. Admittedly, my mr 3.5 and mr 1 were being kids and walking around and i did my best to try and contain them to one spot. I was going to use a spot table to do this and was rudely advised that it was the way to the water station so couldn鈥檛 be blocked - fair enough i thought and promptly apologised. Mr 3.5 was lying on an outdoor wooden bench with his feet on the bench and the owner took exception to this and yelled out 鈥渘o feet on the bench鈥! (Funny as i am pretty sure one of the images advertising this cafe has a kid standing on the same if not similar wooden bench:/) anyways, At this point we made the decision to go elsewhere as we were clearly not welcome - whether because of the kids or that i am a person of colour馃し鈥嶁檧锔 nonetheless you need to work on your customer service skills or put a sign up stating that kids and/or people of colour are not welcome. Each or your 鈥渕essages鈥 could have been delivered politely but i suspect as soon as we arrived you had decided we were not welcome. We have had a standing fortnightly coffee date for the last year and this was the worst experience. In fact, in almost 20 years in australia and this is the first time i have felt unwelcome anywhere! Definitely won鈥檛 be returning or recommending this place, particularly when they are so many other welcoming coffee spots around the traps. Lucky that as we proceeded to have a fantastic coffee and morning elsewhere.

What a disappointment, first visit to this place on our holiday. Coffee was average and the seat was not comfortable. This is our 2nd time back to Brisbane and thought to try this place after its reviews. Must just be a Brisbane this, average at best. Melbourne Coffee is some much more advanced. Coffee here was bitter/burnt and lacked silky milk texture for the Latte and the Long black was weak and watery.
