This place was perfect for my wife and I. They have an extensive wine and beer list. They organize the wines by general category such as "funky, bold, luscious" etc. And we were really impressed. The also had an extensive cheese selection. The dishes are smaller sizes. They even have a snack size which has tiny bites. I ordered the... More

I guess the best part of Center City is that there are many great places to eat and drink, so stumbling into quite possibly one of the best taprooms ever doesn't seem too far fetched. Enjoyed a meal and drinks at Tria after visiting the Mütter in February 2015 and was immediately enamored with the food AND the beer menu... More

Stopped here for post-Valentine's brunch dessert and drinks. The beer list was outstanding as we perused the special menu and took a seat at the bar. Arriving around 12:30pm on a holiday Saturday and we had no problem whatsoever finding a seat. By the time we left at about 1:15, every seat was full. With the beers, we split the... More

This is a cute small bar and restaurant that gets quite busy. I particularly liked the bruschetta with brie and marinate dried cherries, delicious and inexpensive. Lots of wine and drinks options and a small menu

Mu daughter and I were off to The Nutcracker and were looking for a place to have lunch beforehand. We discovered Tria online(within walking distance to the Academy of Music) and thought we'd try it out. It was wonderful! We both had delicious salads and soup to start. My soup: lamb fennel sausage with white beans. Soooooo rich, creamy and... More

Tria was a great finding. The menu, specially the cheese section, is great at a fair price. Also has a variety of wines, beers and other drinks. And at Sundays they offer a special combination of wine and cheese that is an excellent opportunity to try new wines and cheeses for a great deal, sometimes at half of the price.

We stayed at the Alexander Inn across the street and were looking for someplace to get a quick bite before heading to the train station for our return trip. The Tria Cafe was perfect. Two of us shared the Figs with Gorgonzola and Prosciutto (snack) the Pistachio Herbed Ricotta with Lavender Honey Bruschetta and the Prosciutto Cotto Sandwich. Delicious! We... More

If you don’t like sharing, Tria is not your place. Not that they don’t have individual type of entrees. I just love the variety of the tapas style approach. five dishes among two people was perfect. Add to it an excellent wine list with many options by the glass and you have the perfect setting. I can’t comment on the... More
