We're proud of what we do

NovelTea has been proud to be a part of Truro's downtown community for seven years. After a devestating fire in September 2020 that destroyed everything we've come back better than ever with the support of our amazing town! We now have TWO locations, NovelTea Coffeehouse & Bakery at 604 Prince Street serving all our delicious drinks and treats and NovelTea Bookstore & Gifts at 23 Inglis Place which just opened in November 2021.

NovelTea Fire

After surviving the first six months of Covid we lost everything in a fire that started in the ceiling after hours on Sunday evening, September 13, 2020. Our community rallied behind us and raised funds to help us re-open in six weeks temporarily at the Farmers' Market and collected books enabling us to restart our used bookstore a little over a year later. We are so excited to offer Truro TWO new locations! 604 Prince Street is our forever home for NovelTea Coffeehouse & Bakery and 23 Inglis Place now houses NovelTea Boosktore & Gifts exclusively featuring our used books and gifts.
