Yummy cake

This place is a must if you are a cakeoholic best I have ever tasted but if you want a sandwich before you may be disappointed very limited choice. Bought bread to take home but sadly did not enjoy as the loaf was too dense

Decided to go out for a drive and came across Falko by accident, best accident I can ever remember having, we had the breakfast which consisted of Boiled Egg, Bacon Roll, Glass Fresh Orange Juice, basket of Fresh Bread with two pots of jam and a Latte. When the food arrived the presentation was fantastic, obviously time and attention to... More

If you can get in here, good luck to your waist line cos its gonna go. The cakes are very precise and crisp, clean edges, and taste soooooo good. That is good for me because I am not really a cake hand, I am a scone fan. Menu board with hot food seems to vary and what I have seen... More

We took shelter in Falko's (Gullane) on a wet Thursday lunchtime. Given the day (and the Scottish summer weather) we had no problems getting a seat, though there was still a pleasant buzz about the place, with several other tables occupied and various customers popping in and out for treats to take away. Service was friendly, prompt yet unrushed. Being... More

There is no better place for cake and coffee, period. The staff are great, the food stunning, overall a great place to be. If I was being picky..........wifi would be nice for the customers, but that's just me being picky. This has nothing to do with the quality of the food, but I think it would help the business.

The cakes really are to die for, and the bacon rolls are pretty good too. Kids love the pretzels, and the hot chocolate is a winner at any time of year. Check out the ice creams too, especially Buckthorn, our family favourite.

The ice cream and cakes are delicious! The ice cream and sorbet (chocolate and raspberry )had incredible flavor - we also enjoyed an opera torte which was delicious.

Danger! Catching site of the cakes on entering could be enough to make you forego main meal and go straight to desert ! Lovely clean restaurant in nice surroundings,with very attentive staff. Schnitzel followed by pastachio cake and coffee - delicious! Extra cakes to take away were well packaged, survived trip back to Glasgow. I thought reasonably priced, and will... More

Visited here on a busy Saturday with the family. There was a huge selection of cakes and pastries. Our coffee and cakes didn't disappoint us, very tasty. The cakes were well liked by my two grandchildren of 4 and 6 years. Friendly speedy service.

A cosy cafe that serves excellent latte and a huge cross section of typical German Torte, Kuchen and other kinds of pastry. The menu says something about stereotypical Swabian stingyness, and it has to be said that the pieces of cake are rather small, compared to those served in German cafes where I live. Prices are high for what you... More
