Despite the literary and fowl themes of Quills, the name of our beloved shop derived from a more familiar source. Head honcho Nathan Quillo grew up with the nickname. Given by a dear friend that had recently passed, the selection was personal and meaningful and of course sounded cool. At least this was the logic of Tyler Deeb, family, friend and future barista of Quills. Seeking to add a personal touch to the bourgeoning new business and to have a versatile concept of the coffee shop, Quills was anointed. All hale.
