What a find! Food was hearty and reasonable. The bread is to die for. Best bread I've ever had in Scotland. Please please open a shop in Glasgow. It was a wonderful treat to sample German specialties in this small seaside Scottish town.

Unfortunately I have to say that I had a horrible experience eating at Falko. I have been to their other cafe in Bruntsfield and thought the cakes were amazing so decided to come to this cafe in Gullane on my birthday after a walk on the beach. They could not have been more unwelcoming. Although we were a large group... More

We met friends here for "a light lunch", our resolve was defeated by the cakes on display. We started well with delicious soup accompanied by artisan breads, hearty portions of both would have been sufficient to arm us for a windy afternoon of bird watching. Beware of their underhand tricks to defeat calorie counters, how dare they display such tempting... More

Great coffee and cake shop. Good atmosphere. Open fire. Maybe pricey but well worth it. Everything made to a very high standard.

This is a favourite bakery and cafe of ours. Great artisan products and a very good selection from this craft bakery.

Superb ambience with, in winter, the crackling open fire and smells of Christmas and, in summer the home made and to die for ice-cream! Fresh made, on the premises, bread and cake from natural ingredients served with the best latte I have tasted. Some say pricey but I say treat time.

Love Falko, we always seem to arrive just at the right moment to get a table. The cakes are the real highlight, lunches good too.

I used to like this place but found on my last few visits that the staff are very arrogant. Yes they have good cake and decent coffee but that's it. Similar to their Edinburgh store I won't be returning as good service costs nothing.

My family and I went to Falko at Gullane today and to our surprise we had a very poor experience. From first sight it looks like a lovely German cafe but the German efficiency and customer service was severely lacking. This was despite the fact the cafe only has 8 small tables and 6 front of house staff. We ordered... More
