Well worth a visit

We called in on a particularly cold day to a very warm welcome, very good selection of food, particularly cakes, not the cheapest but as always you only get what you pay for. Pet friendly made it for us and we shall return.

We'd heard this was a excellent bakery and we decided to pick up a loaf as soon as we arrived in the area for a short break. We chose a spelt loaf and it was very, very good. Wow, what a display of cakes! I didn't go in to buy cake for myself, we only wanted a slice for my... More

What a sweet surprise on Stanely Road in Gullane. Didn't expect such good cakes ánd good espresso here. Friendly atmosphere as well. When your driving around in this area it's worth a detour/visit!

Went there for a coffee and a cake after arriving at our hotel in Aberlady. Thoroughly enjoyed the cakes and coffee. So much so, went back the next day for more and bought some to take home. Excellent place but very busy so seats are not always available. Cant wait to go again. Yumm!

Falkos is a fantastic place to get a genuinely amazing cake. They aren't the cheapest place to eat, but 2 people could easily share a cake, and they are made to fantastic Swiss recipes. The cafe is dog friendly - ideal given how lovely the beach is at Gullane. They also do amazing bread which you can buy to take... More

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.
