Cuckoos Bakery provided an outstanding service from first contact to home delivery. A beautifully crafted cake for a special birthday party. Complimented by everyone in the company–including the party venue staff. Superb! I could not recommend this independent bakery highly enough.

Over the years, I have bought cupcakes and celebration cakes from the Bruntsfield Cuckoos Bakery and they have always been top quality and totally delicious! The staff are super friendly too; and the business is also very supportive of its local community too with mind donations for various endeavours. A great asset to the already lovely Bruntsfield line up of independent businesses!

I bought 6 of their Halloween cupcakes and they were delicious! Cuckoos are my go-to for birthday cakes and cupcakes every time, I couldn't recommend them more. The in-store service is always welcoming and friendly, the perfect spot for a cup of tea and a sweet treat!
