Twelve Triangles Kitchen Table

Having popped my head in for coffee on a couple of occasions already, I could resist stopping for something to eat at the Twelve Triangles Kitchen Table no further on a blustery recent afternoon.


Adding to their shops on Brunswick Street and Portobello High Street, the Kitchen Table retains a similar pared-back aesthetic to the other places, but is a bigger space with a whacking great kitchen table – as you might expect from the name – in the middle.

There’s room around the table for a good number – maybe 16/20 depending on how friendly you want to be. The table is busy with cakes, condiments and other goodies.


The first item of business was coffee. Their focus is on filter, with no espresso machine in operation. They offer a range of styles with roasters Fortitude, Steampunk and Dear Green on offer today.

I opted for the Fortitude and it was really good. I’m still getting to grips with filter over my beloved espresso, but this certainly aided my appreciation.

I settled upon their cheese toastie to eat but was persuaded to crank things up a notch with the kimchi version on charcoal sourdough.


This soon arrived accompanied by rhubarb chutney and pickled celeriac. The jet black bread had plenty of presence and this was backed up by power-packed flavour from the cheese and kimchi. It was a first rate dish that will live long in the memory.

So overall, the Kitchen Table is an absolute triumph. It’s the best of an excellent bunch of places from the Twelve Triangles team. I’m glad to have it so close at hand and will be a frequent visitor. Indeed, I was along for their Rocket Brewing dinner just a few days after this visit and it was superb. Make sure to stop by and check it out. I’m confident you’ll be impressed.
