This is an artisan baker specialising in German cakes, tortes, etc, which cost about £4 per slice. When you see them you can tell that they are worth it - real works of art. And they taste great. Light lunches and breakfasts as well as ice cream, hot drinks are good value expertly presented and... read more

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

Always busy - but that's because of the food they serve. Loved by both locals and day trippers. Great bacon rolls if you've cycled here or walked the beach. Check out the gateau slices on display as you enter. If you don't see anything you don't like you probably don't like cake.

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

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.

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
