See on quick speed my experience is completely different. I think ToA is fine with the granary. +10% food in all cities means you're going to be spamming settlers first (if you plan to conquer early and not settle then you would get SoZ). Well what's the point of having a granary if you're making settlers and and can't benefit from the extra food? So while you're making your settlers you're naturally learning techs as well, so it makes sense to go monument/shrine->hit 4/5 pop->settlers->military theory (while still making settlers)->artemis I stopped playing recently because I realized the game is totally not balanced for the way I play it. I tried standard, but it just felt way too slow.
