Tucked away in the Zinga Shopping Center on Turnpike Street across from Merrimack stands Tripoli’s Bakery & Pizza. Other students had raved about Tripoli’s, and it sparked my curiosity to try what they had to offer. Tripoli’s Bakery currently has 4 stores across Massachusetts in North Andover, Lawrence, Salisbury, and Seabrook. Not only does Tripoli’s allow Merrimack students to use their Mack Cards, they also offer limited delivery to Merrimack (with a minimum order of 8 slices of pizza) and you can order online or by phone. Tripoli’s specialties include breads, cakes, cookies, pizza and pastries.about
The pastries and breads are made fresh daily, and the pizza is made fresh to order. Walking into Tripoli’s, you’ll be astonished to see the display cases in the bakery section filled with homemade pastries, cakes, and cookies. Serving customers for over 80 years, Tripoli’s knows a thing or two about making great food. I was able to taste-test a Whoopie Pie from Tripoli’s bakery. Filled with crème and topped with powdered sugar, this sweet delight was definitely one for the record books. Since it’s so close to campus, it would be a great treat for either after finals or after class. Tripoli’s gets an A+ from us!
