Tribeca in 2009
Tribeca GalleryCafe & Books was established in April of 2007. We
are located in the heart of Historic Watertown. Our charming cafe offers a
terrific espresso bar, delicious teas and smoothies, select wines, pastries,
sweets, light eating options including soup in the cold seasons. Our
bookstore includes new and used books. Tribeca is Watertown's only locally
owned and operated full service book store. We specialize in carrying many of
the mainstream bestsellers, yet also carry many unique titles along
with a large selection of Wisconsin books and local and regional authors.
Our children's book selection is quaintly located in our upper loft, which
is also where our children's storytime is held.
Tribeca, the name, the location, the lifestyle. The neighborhood of Tribeca is located in the heart of Manhattan in New York City. The name is the formation of three distinct points in Manhattan, which form a vibrant, rich, and artistic community. Hence the name comes from "TRIangle BElow CAnal Street. My joy in visiting this charming neighborhood has provided me with some wonderful memories, and that visceral warmth of being part of a diverse and friendly community. Some of my memories include the terrific museums, delicious bistros, art galleries, boutiques, and coffeehouses. In a sense, I have tried to bring a little of those memories to our storefront located in my hometown of Watertown Wisconsin.
In the neighborhood. Being part of the community is a passion of ours. We believe strongly in supporting other local businesses and supporting many of the local community events and charitable organizations. We also strive to provide an interesting, educational, and artistic venue for many organizations. Our "Green Room" is available for use for many small group gatherings, be it a book club or business meeting. At Tribeca, we offer many author book signings, artist showcasing, Enthusiast classes which provide an indepth look at various interests such as coffee tastings, wine tastings, and home beer brewing. Our location is also the home of the Watertown High School Photography Show which is held twice a year.
