Twelve Triangles opened its doors at 90 Brunswick Rd in March 2015 with a small core range of sourdough breads, pastries and doughnuts and with a strong emphasis on slow ferment cold prove doughs and making everything from scratch. Over the last two years they have expanded their repertoire as they have learnt more about sourdough and bread. Their shops now sell a range of breads & pastries as well as some pies and lunch bits, alongside espresso from Steampunk Coffee and rotating batch brew filter from various roasters.
In August 2016 they opened a second shop in the seaside town of Portobello, Edinburgh. Alongside their bakery shops they started to cater pop up events and dinners, using their breads and bakery products the a backbone of the menu alongside local, seasonal ingredients. This led to them realising they wanted a space where people could sit, eat and discuss food, and they could offer even more of the kinds of food they made at their pop up events.
Just last month they opened 'Kitchen Table' on Duke Street. This is a cafe space which is an extension of how they work in the bakery. Here they serve breakfast, lunch and afternoon treats, making everything from scratch. They have decided to forgo the espresso machine and instead serve delicious batch brew filters from a rotating selection of local roasters. When we visited we enjoyed their home made granola with fruit compote and delicious sourdough toast with ricotta, avocados and dukkah. All this was accompanied by two different filters prepared on batch brew - Steampunk's Huye Mountain (Rwanda) and a lovely Costa Rican from Fortitude. It's exciting to see more and more cafes operating on a multi-roaster basis offering a great range of coffees.
Twelve Triangles are a young company, constantly learning and evolving but Rachel and her team have built up a strong and loyal group of customers. Their mission of providing simple things, done well, seems to be a hit with folk in Edinburgh and we are delighted to work alongside them to bring a range of exciting coffees to their shops. We hope you will visit.
