Not bad - Edit

I went here 1 time.
They have a pretty good tofu scramble.

dirty bathroom - Edit

I haven't eaten here because the bathroom in the bookstore is disgusting; I complained to the cafe staff, who said, fairly, that they're not responsible--the bookstore cleans the bathroom. But if that is the condition of the bathroom, I don't know how clean the kitchen is--it may be super clean, or not, I wouldn't know.

Pros: --

Cons: --

Okay - Edit

I found this place to be just okay for vegan options. Plenty more vegetarian options. I wasn't going for breakfast, but there were maybe five or six vegan options for lunch/dinner. They have vegan chili, two vegan-friendly burgers, and two vegan Trident bowls that looked pretty good. I might have made the wrong choice by going with the portobello burger, but I found it pretty forgettable. This was, however, the best cup of tea I had during my week in the city, for what it's worth. I wouldn't consider this a "must-go" restaurant, but it'll definitely do if you want to eat somewhere with omni friends.

Fun cafe with vegan options - Edit

I had breakfast here on a Sunday morning. It was very busy, but there never seemed to be a wait, there’s tons of seating, including seating upstairs. There’s also a small amount of outdoor seating. We chose to eat at the bar space.

I had the tofu scramble, which is of course a pretty standard vegan option, but it was really good version of it.

Pros: Tons of seating, Books!

Pleasant and cozy - Edit

I went here with my non-veg dad and we were both pleased. I got the trident bowl (highly recommend!) and he got himself a burger. The waiter was cool and knew what on the menu was vegan and what could be made vegan. The atmosphere was cozy and cool, would be a perfect spot to study and eat but also a nice place for a low-key date.

Pros: veg-friendly, good music

Nice option downtown - Edit

There are few vegan options in downtown Boston, so Trident is a nice place to stop and grab a bite when you are in the area.

The scrambled tofu is very tasty, yet a bit oily.

Excellent coffee with soy milk.

Pros: lots of seatings, friendly staff, nice vibe

Great for dates, chai, breakfast all day - Edit

Trident Booksellers and Cafe is an excellent venue for very small groups or for dates. Lots of small table seating for 2-4.

* Breakfast all day, includes tofu scramble (excellent), Mega Tater Tots (contains cheese, overpriced, but great for occasional indulgences), and plenty of traditional options.

* Wide variety of tea, chai, coffee, with a variety of milk and non-milk options.

* Veg-friendly wraps, including falafel.

Trident has quickly become a go-to place when I want a friendly environment for a casual meal or hot beverage in the Back Bay. I recommend trying it out next time you're on Newbury Street.

Pros: atmosphere, location, flexibility

Cons: crowded
