“Wonderful, wonderful cakes!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2012

Crisp, sunny day in Gullane and, after a long walk, deserved a treat at Falko's. The cafe was 'buzzing' and lively. Pleasant lady served us and we enjoyed big bowls of soup followed by nicely served tea tray and gorgeous Danish pastry/Raspberry Tart. This is a very nice place to stop off if passing through the village.

“Quality German baking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2012

Fine German breads, cakes and coffee. In Berlin it would be just fine, in Gullane (and Edinburgh) it's a revelation.

“Cakes to die for, but mealtimes lacking”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2012

This popular cafe does cakes exceedingly well, and the coffee is not bad. My soup and bread was tasty but my wife's filled roll was a bit basic and the 'Viennese sausages' looked like frankfurters straight from the jar.

Good for afternoon tea and cakes but lacking at mealtimes.

“Wonderful bread and cakes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2012

I would highly recommend this cafe. Having spent some significant time living in Germany, I can honestly say this is the real deal. In Germany, you must train for at least seven years to earn the title Master Baker. Falko is indeed a master baker, turning out truly magnificent cakes and really devine bread. The lunchtime menus are always a real treat and I have always found service quick and friendly.
