NU Bucket List #87: Trident Booksellers and Cafe

Calling all bookworms! Looking for a new place to find a great book and grab a delicious snack while you’re at it? Then Trident Booksellers and Cafe is the place for you! Read on to find out more about this adorable combination cafe and bookstore located right on Newbury Street.

Since 1984, Trident Booksellers and Cafe has been offering great food and great books to the Back Bay area. While Trident’s full service restaurant offers all meals, their brunch selection is particularly yummy, and full of a ton of healthy options! Open from 8am-midnight with free wifi, Trident is the perfect place for late night studying. If you need an energy boost, you can try one of their variety of tea or coffee options!

Trident has a wide selection of both books for you to choose from, including some signed books! If you’re looking for some light reading, check out their award winning magazine section. Trident also offers a selection of things like book themed mugs, t-shirts, bags, and more. If you become a real Trident fan, you can also buy Trident merch online!

If you’re looking for fun, book related events to attend, then check out Trident’s events calendar! Every Friday at 8:30pm you can grab a team of up to 6 people to compete in a trivia competition for a $35 Trident gift card. They also have screenings of TV shows and movies, poetry and book readings, and book swaps throughout the month! To see the events they have lined up in the next few weeks click here.
