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

Loved this place. Had the fish tacos for starter and duck flatbread for main course. This place has a great environment and amazing selection of beer. Staff was friendly and attentive. Will go back for sure!

This cafe/wine bar is just fabulous - whether you have a meal, a glass of wine and some nibbles or come for a late dessert and coffee. We tried it on 3 consecutive nights as we were staying across the road at the Alexander Inn. The service, advice regarding wine and food were excellent as was the food, wine and... More

Walked over from the Alexander Inn for a snack and nightcap and enjoyed it so much. Had intended to get over to Tria for our entire stay and am glad we did! Wine selection is extensive, beers and ciders are aweome. Opted to stay on the appetizer side, and they were superb. Prices are VERY fair. Loved this place!

Bartender was very helpful and friendly. could imagine that it would be a good... More

We ate dinner here before a show at the Academy of Music last night. Thanks to the great reviews on here we made a good choice. There is outside seating with heaters which was full. But without a reservation and a full house we were still seated at a window right away. The ambience is dark, candle lit,very nice. The... More
