Trident Booksellers & Cafe2
Why locals love it
Not much in Boulder feels very old-world. Trendy restaurants abound, thousands of new students come every year, and a forward-thinking tech community champions the cutting edge. Though it only dates back to 1980, Trident, with it's squeaky floors and strong coffee, reminds locals of the value of slowing down from time to time.
Why you should visit it
If endearingly modest furnishings, ample reading material and a sense of being invited to linger strike you as more appealing than a paper cup, ostentatious smile and subtle request to make way for the next paying customer Trident is your place.
Recent changes in management have some long time customers nervous about the future, so visit soon in case the times finally catch up with Trident.
