By far the best hot chocolate this side of the Italian restaurant at National Galleries Scotland in Edinburgh (made with real chocolate, not chocolate powder) and very tasty raisin brioche served with butter and two little dishes of jams. But... service surly (bordering on rude) when I asked for a decaffeinated coffee. They don't do it, don't intend to and... More

Having discovered Falko's Gullane in May on the way home from the Highlands, we made a deliberate decision to pay another visit in July whilst coming home from Edinburgh. The menu is predominantly Austria with German and other influences. We have only eaten the heavenly desserts, but judging by the regular queues out of the door for the ice cream... More

I live a couple of miles from Falko and it has become my go to place to take friends, grab a coffee and cake or an ice cream. The cakes are easily the best in East Lothian with a huge selection of German style tarts, pastries, strudels etc. their home made ice cream is to die for! They also sell... More

Falko Konditormeister is a jewel in the crown of East Lothian cafes and patisseries. Family owned and with another shop at Bruntsfield in Edinburgh, they make exquisite, European-style gateaux cakes such as you might find in a classy Viennese or Parisian cafe. Expect to pay in the region of £3.50 for a slice. Unlike British confectionery, they don't taste too... More

This was my forth visit. The first two times for just coffee/cake but the 3rd was disappointing. The service has always been poor and you could hear the man moaning about everything if you were sat near the counter. Tried again yesterday for lunch but no one seemed interested and we eventually left. The cakes are very good but I'd... More

Cosy coffee house with an authentic German feel and friendly service. We stopped here on our way to the beach and had bacon rolls which were lovely. The cakes are amazing and decided to take some away to save some pennies. They may seem pricey but you get what you pay for - no cheap, tasteless gunge here. I had... More

Quiet afternoon with lots of staff on. Was told whilst queuing that if we sat in we could have table service. Everyone got served in queue and our table had still to be served. Had to ask for our bill as no one came to us despite trying to get eye contact so had to go up to pay.... Easily... More

Great little place on the main street in Gullane - been a few times for both lunch and coffee/cake. Given it is quite small then be prepared to queue for a short while. Service is friendly and efficient. Had the german meat platter which was brilliant, good selection and filling. The cakes at the counter generally speak for themselves. Good... More

This is like walking into a cafe in Austria. Lunch is like perusing a menu in Vienna. Wonderful dishes and exquisite cakes and desserts. The place is seldom empty and although lunch took a while to get to us, it was worth the wait.

I have been a regular customer of this cafe since it's opening and have thoroughly enjoyed the delicious array of cakes etc however after yesterdays experience I very much doubt that I will be returning.Whilst enjoying my coffee and cake another customer arrived and sat at the table next to me with a very smelly dog which totally ruined the...
