This sweet spot serves extraordinary freshly baked doughnuts and other sugary treats, as well as breads and hot drinks.
Start your day off right, ideally with a stripy black and white paper bag filled with fresh doughnuts, bread and pastries from Twelve Triangles. The original, tiny Brunswick Street shop opened in 2015, with a second takeaway bakery/café appearing on Portobello High Street the year later. There’s now an excellent sitdown café/ restaurant on Duke Street too, but the two original shops are good for a quick pit-stop – there is a small seating area in both (no toilets though) for enjoying a flat white with Steampunk coffee from along the road in North Berwick. Follow them on social media to see what flavours are on – doughnuts come in daily-changing varieties, such as pumpkin cream cheese, apple and cinnamon or lemon ricotta, and their top-quality ‘real’ breads might include black charcoal or chocolate, fig and almond sourdough, walnut and gorgonzola focaccia, fruit and nut loaf – they never seem to run out of good ideas, and often sell them in half-loaf sizes too (useful considering their no artificial additives policy). A recommended breakfast spot, even if it’s just for a to-go order, and also good for treats to take round to friends.
