Popular spot in downtown Edmonds
Red Twig Bakery Café is located in downtown Edmonds. I was in town for the Edmonds Farmers Market and I realized I needed coffee. Walking to Red Twig I was reminded that Edmonds is a really nice place and that we need to write more about it in the near future.
Saturday mid-day and Red Twig was packed. The outside seating was full. The interior was packed, and the shop was really buzzing. I was able to grab a seat at the window looking out towards the outside seating. I did a bit of people watching and really found the place to be really a comfortable space. Tucked in the corner of the café is their coffee roaster which let’s face it is why I was there. Coffee.
Time for a cold brew coffee
It was a nice summer day a cold brew coffee. The cold brew was served to me in a compostable cold cup. What a great touch. One of the reasons I am hesitant to order cold brew coffee is that I feel guilty throwing away the plastic cup. Red Twig solves my guilt and allows me to enjoy my cold brew! The cold brew was their The Local. They describe it as a single origin from the Sidamo province of Ethiopia. It is a medium to dark roast which has notes of key lime, blackberry, and mandarin oranges. Translation. It was good. Very good. Super refreshing and bright. One of the best cold brews that I have enjoyed recently. Good Coffee. Check!
I pared my coffee with one of their in-house baked scones. It was great. The coffee and the scone were just what I needed to go back and walk around the Edmonds Farmers Market.
The menu boards offered a nice selection of breakfast, lunch, and early dinner items. They source their items from local sustainable farmers. They offer many gluten free and dairy free pastries. I need to come back and have a meal. Of course that means more coffee and an updated post.
The staff at Red Twig Bakery Café were very friendly and fast. Service was great and I was very impressed with during my visit. The décor is casual with a rustic slant. There is a lot of seating and the Wi-Fi is solid. Even on a busy Saturday I was able to get some pretty impressive Wi-Fi speed test results. Verdict if you’re in Edmonds you will enjoy coffee and conversation at Red Twig Bakery Café.
