Our cafe is a thriving community of locals, tourists, walkers, cyclists, runners, families and individuals - we love dogs, too!

“Great setting”

And the home baked food is also really nice. You can sit outside in the sunshine, and listen the the gentle sound of the water while enjoying homemade cakes and light food. Perfect for a nice walk and lunch or even breakfast. It's also very welcoming inside if it isn't warm outside

“Superb location and food. Small but significant improvements to service would make this place exceptional”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

The outdoor courtyard is one of, if not the best, places to sit in Cramond on a sunny day. Lots of space and lots of tables makes for a peaceful, relaxing time and the owner does not make you feel rushed to leave.

There are a number of small things that could improve this place including menus on the tables and the staff are in dire need of customer service training. I have thought this after every visit and on my last visit another customer commented on the same thing to me.

“Good food in a beautiful setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

As locals we go to The Falls Cafe a lot after our walks.
There are lovely large scones, hot home made soups and hearty
sandwiches and lunches.
All of these seem to be enjoyed by both locals and visitors.

“scones”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

We had had a long and enjoyable walk from Stockbridge and were in great need of refreshment when we happened upon this gem of home made delights. The only problem was what were we going to eat as everything was so tempting. The cheese scones won but as we sat in the sun we were discussing what we might eat on our next visit! Now that is a sign of a good restaurant.

“fab place for coffee/lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

This is a great spot for a coffee or spot of lunch when out for a stroll in Cramond. Sheltered back garden has lots of space to relax in the sun and is dog friendly. Coffee is excellent quality and bacon rolls very tasty. All in all a top spot with a friendly relaxed atmosphere.
