Seems like with the changing seasons it’s a good time to reach out and let you know what we’ve been up to at Trident Booksellers and Cafe! We have had a flurry of activity.
Sugar Station: We created a new sugar station that is now to the left of the drink counter. We did our best to match the look and feel of the space and think it came out really well! You can now refill your water from the station as well have some more room while dressing up your drink!
Bathrooms: We have completed the bathroom project with two renovated bathrooms at the back of the bookstore. We were able to incorporate a lot of the design elements and old history into the feel of these and are very proud. The old Women’s Bathroom (not that whole wall) from the main cafe area has been removed and we will put in more seating in that area. This project completes tonight!
Sandbox: We installed a new railing on the sandbox, replacing the old railing that was causing splinters and falling apart.
Seating: The sugar station took away two tables and we are adding three to the new area in the middle of the cafe as well as a few new seats in the bookstore. We have replaced a few chairs with more comfortable options as well. We have also added a lot to the back patio including 30 seats and a large community table.
Internet: We installed some fancy new technology to make the internet faster for those who choose to do a little work. It has full coverage from the front tables to the back patio.
Power: We have added a few new spots to plug in and charge while you recharge.
Liquor Licence: We applied for and were granted a wine and beer liquor licence. We have used this for hosting events on the back patio like the Fringe Festival. We don’t have plans to do cafe service at this time.
Roaster: Our roaster Dragonfly Coffee Roasters won a HUGE award: America’s Best Espresso 2nd Place at Coffee Fest Anaheim. Congrats to Tamas and the team!
Menu: We are putting up a new menu board simplifying the look and opening up the coveted mirror space. You can still order your drink, the menu is just becoming a bit cleaner.
Books: There are a ton of new and amazing books in the store just in time for the winter giving and reading season.
We hope to have a cup with you and all the wonderful people who make up the Trident community. This completes most all of the improvements we wanted to see, now it’s time to listen and see what else we can do to be your favorite cafe.
