The Café


Trident Café is the home of the big latte and The Senseless Pursuit of Excellence. Our cheerful and efficient barista staff go to painstaking lengths to create a cappuccino just like you had in Rome (thick crema, foamy milk at just the right temperature) -- or maybe a little better. For our drip coffee we offer Trident Blend, a rich Italian Roast, decaf, and a stand-alone coffee that changes every day. We have some nice local pastries--cookies, muffins, oatcakes, cinnamon rolls, carrot cake and date squares.

We now offer complimentary wi-fi access for laptop users.



Trident's rich, creamy espresso is matched only by its atmosphere: dark wooden tables, stately purple chairs and warm wood panelling backed by tall stacks of used books. Walls are earth-toned and the light will never be flourescent. The Café may be totally empty or without a seat in the house.

For your browsing pleasure you'll find local and national daily newspapers and a variety of magazines. Upon opening in 1992 the Trident was the first espresso bar in Halifax to be completely non-smoking, and it has remained so ever since. We hope to see you soon!



The world of imbibing is also a tea world: we offer 56 different types of teas, including 14 loose green teas from China, Japan, Viet Nam, and India, and 9 loose black teas from Sri Lanka, India, and China. Choose between Lhapsang Souchang, Red Bush from South Africa, or our freshly-brewed Dragon Chai (never from a box), with its warm balance of black pepper, cardamon, cinnamon, cloves and fresh ginger. In summertime, our real iced teas are as pure and refreshing as an Atlantic Ocean breeze.
