April 13, 2015 Bakery, Coffee shop, Leith 4 Comments



Lovecrumbs has been a major success story since they opened their doors, a few years back. It has grown to be one of our premier cake purveyors and they make a damn fine cup of coffee, too.

It came as no surprise to hear of plans for a second shop. However, the decision for the new place to shift the focus away from cake was a surprising but welcome bonus, particularly given my more savoury leanings.

In premises on Brunswick Street that used to be an antique shop, I visited in their first week of business. Things were still settling in, but the place had a lovely feel to it, with elegant cornicing and a stylish plant feature on the wall.



Aside from bread, croissants, doughnuts, and brownies, there’s a daily changing focaccia. Today’s was an intriguing sounding roast potato, homemade ricotta and plum topped beauty. I ordered a portion alongside my requisite espresso. The coffee was to their usual excellent standard.

The focaccia was absolutely first class. I can think of few better single dishes that I’ve sampled in all quests. The flavour combination of sweet, salty and savoury, with lovely rosemary notes, was an absolute delight. I had to exercise quite some restraint not to order a second portion.



So overall, I was extremely impressed with Twelve Triangles. You have to make time in your very near future for a visit to sample their excellent wares. I’m confident you’ll be as impressed as I was.
