Stopped at Tribeca for pre-made salads for lunch and they were very good. Service was friendly and fast.

Small town feels. Good coffee and snacks but great location. We walk up and down the street and like to stop in for a drink. The staff are a little finicky but you can ignore them.

A tremendous selection of drinks with a cheat sheet if you are not up to date with Starbucks selections of coffees. I think their rolls and scones leave that big coffee place in the dust. They are not dried out and stale, but fresh and flavorful. They also have a very good selection od books. The service is great and... More

Great use of an old building by super nice people. Coffee drinks are excellent as are bakery choices. My fave is the sage scone. Seating among the book shelves with locals is fun. Check out balcony seating with a view of Main Street.

I enjoyed frequenting this shop while I worked in the area for several months. Delicious coffee and coffee drinks and a nice selection of books. They also ordered a special book for me once. And I purchased some salads in a jar for myself and a coworker once that was a fun supper.

I stopped here recently and had a good cup of coffee and enjoyed browsing the books. A little short staffed but she was friendly. I didn't try any of the food options but I don't usually go to coffee shops to eat more than a pastry or something light.

My wife and I live about a half hour from Watertown. We have been a few times but have not taken the time to explore much. I stopped here to browse the books, get a cup of coffee and get some work done. I loved the spaciousness of the upstairs. Sandwich options were somewhat limited, but my chicken wrap was... More

It is a perfect pair to have a coffee shop that sells books. What's even better is it is right across the street from the movie theater. Tribeca makes unique coffee drinks, my favorite is the Flaming Zebra which I get hot in the winter and cold in the summer. The atmosphere is relaxing and ;you can browse their book... More

The coffee was fine, the soup - despite coming from a bag, was fine. The place has character and atmosphere. Service was efficent, but not overly friendly. I would go back if I had some time to kill and was looking for a good cup of coffee. I do appreciate an independent bookstore, and one with a coffee shop deserves... More

This is a great place for coffee with friends and family. It's a nice place to study too!!! Prices are decent and fair! There is always service with a smile here, and you can't beat the view of Main St.!!!
