This place always has something to buy! Nice staff and super selection. Be sure to visit often, the stock is always changing.
Overpriced, mediocre drinks, and baristas who get snotty if you try to pay with a debit/credit card. There are better places on Pearl St.
I think it's been 25 years since I visited the Trident last, though I can't really recall. I used to think of the Trident as a place to meet an old friend, and that was the situation this time.

The Trident is a standard Boulder coffee house where you will get a flavor of the residents who live here. Wonderful coffees, teas, specialty drinks and GREAT pastry await you.

The Trident is a Boulder treasure. The coffee is great, and the ambiance is genuine Boulder. There's an interesting bookstore (with great inexpensive cards) and a very sweet shaded garden area in the back--or you can people-watch from the outside tables in front.

In every town I visit, I wish for a used bookstore/coffee shop. Boulder actually has one! The bookstore is small, but I thought the selection was very good. The mocha I had was fine. The people watching was great. It was definitely a good place to spend some time.
Good selection of teas, and I love the historic feel of the cafe. Hardwood and brick. Go just to say you visited it.
