  1. The author has ordered my two signature dishes at the Trident which I always choose because they are vegan- the cashew chili and the Trident Fries. Both are good (although the reviewer’s critique of the chili may be fair), but the Trident fries have a special place in my heart as “healthy” comfort food lately. I indulge about once a month there and it is very warming against the bitter chill indeed.

    On a separate note, Trident has free wifi available, you just have to provide a valid e-mail address to log in.



  2. Although not easily accessible using public transportation from BU, I recommend S&S at Inman Sq in Cambridge.

    Also although you wouldn’t go there just to eat, if anyone is spending a long time at Mass General Hospital, the ‘Eat Street Cafe’ is fabulous. It’s in the basement. MGS saved my life so I know the place well. Let’s say someone needs a fasting blood test in the AM and then has to wait 2 hrs to get his/her results. Just head for the Eat Street Cafe. You will find somemthing for every palate and no one care if you linger over a book.

  3. While I will agree that the food at Trident is good, the service and prices are terrible–initially the prices aren’t so bad, until you realize that every item is essentially a la carte. For example, when you order their lemon ricotta French toast, they will ask you if you want the maple syrup. Of course, what else would you put on them? Only after the bill arrives do you learn the maple syrup is a 2.95 add-on. Also, their bathrooms are filthy to the point that I wouldn’t even #1 in them. The books are overpriced, and the service is terrible. All in all, you are a million-times better off taking a trip to Zaftig’s in Coolidge Corner for breakfast all day, and then the Brookline Booksmith for all your literary needs. As for Trident, in the words of Herman Melville, “I’d prefer not to.”

  4. This place is in no way affordable for a college student. The service is horrific. Let me mention again that it costs $3.00 for syrup on your pancakes.

  5. Trident was the best cafe shop that I ever been. I’ve traveled to many countries and I could never find another place like this one. The best thing at Trident is to seat at the wooden bar and read articles from great magazines that is right there for you to enjoy while you’re drinking your cup of coffee. For the owners, ” Trident ” reminds me what is the best from Boston and USA.
