Always good to be able to find a close-to-authentic Viennese »Verlängerter« coffee and Falko do it well. Between us we had a slice of Sachertorte and one of Zitronentorte. Both were really good and if being ultra critical, the Sachertorte wanted the teensiest bit more apricot jam. Service was slow but not unpleasant. Lovely part of the world right on... More

This is simply a stunning wee place to stop for a coffee. The staff are great very helpful and friendly. Good choices of drinks on the menu. However, even better choice of cakes and nice things. On this visit we decided not to have cake there, but get a bit cake to take away and have later. The cakes are... More

Nice place with friendly staff and great selection of baking goodies. We were warmly received and had a small selection of lovely cakes here. The Black Forest Gateaux was delightful - cherries soaked in booze really added to the flavour!! It was later in the afternoon and I wish we had arrived earlier to buy some bread to take away...

Faldo Konditormeister is very good bakery and coffee shop, the quality of the products are second to none, a must visit for buying bread and cakes or sitting in for a coffee or lunch.

Found by chance and what a treasure. Wish I could have tried more of the homemade cakes - they were works of art. Service very good even though very busy. The bread was amazing.

The chef has returned to Falko! Best known for marvellous cakes, coffee and German style artisan breads, Falko now offer Schnitzel, rosti, pancakes, goulasch soup and other specials. I had a nice schnitzel yesterday, easily as good as any I have had in Germany or Austria. Our old favourites of Vienna sausages, smoked salmon, and leberkase now are supplemented by... More

Visited a Falkos a few times over the years. Coffee always good as is the wonderful collection of sweetmeats and breads. Nice to see a broader range of savoury things to eat for lunch. 8 dishes on the menu. We had the pancakes with bacon and the smoked salmon with salad and potatoe rosti. All tasty. Took a slice of...

Stunning selection of cakes in this Konditorei, finally decided on the Sachertorte which certainly compares favourably with the Sachertorte Hotel version I have tried in Austria. Perhaps a little expensive but very good quality and will probably be back again to try more cakes with their very good coffee.

I popped in and got a takeaway coffee and cake from here on Sunday. The cake was great. Light and very tasty. My coffee was ok but the service was awful. The lady behind the counter was obviously not happy about the presence of customers. Worth a visit just don't expect pleasant staff!

Now this bakery/restaurant was a surprise. We did not expect to find a German bakery on the East Coast of Scotland. This establishment sells fantastic bread, scones, and dessert treats (also great pretzels for the pretzel lovers out there). It also has a restaurant with a small, but delicious menu. We stopped by for lunch and had a delicious sandwich... More
