We had sampled several cheeses, had flatbreads, and drank several glasses of wine and cider. There aren't many seats so get there early. We went for lunch on a Friday and were seated right away. There is some front outdoor sidewalk seating. The decor and bathrooms are clean and new. The servers were knowledgable, prompt and polite. A nice touch:... More

Tria is an incredibly cute corner restaurant that opens up onto 12th Street. I immediately loved the decor and the friendly servers. The staff really knows the wines and cheeses on the menu. The salads are excellent!

The Tria Café has another location at 12th and Spruce, just three blocks from the Reading Terminal Market. We were there on Sunday, intrigued by their Sunday School Specials, which feature one beer, one wine and one cheese, all at half-price. Your second glass or plate of the "special" is full price. No problem. You have an opportunity to try... More
