Came across this lovely wee place when looking for somewhere dog friendly. What a great find! Tasty lunch, quick service and lovely coffee and cake. Not loads of room between tables,but enough for our wee mutt!

My friend lives just round the corner from here, and I love Germany, so when I came to visit she took me for lunch. I had the poached eggs and salmon on sourdough, which was delicious with the dill mayonnaise (and I don't even like dill!). My friend had the gouda and ham on toast and she said it was... More

While visiting me, my boyfriend discovered this little Bäckerei in Edinburgh where we could have some german cakes and dishes which you won't find easily in the UK. When we arrived at Falko, it was full so we decided to take it home. All cakes have an amazing presentation and it is difficult to chose. We ended up taking Apfelstrudel,... More

Went one Sunday for an early brunch and wasn't disappointed. Great food served by attentive and helpful staff. We didn't feel rushed, and they helpfully reserved a loaf of spelt bread for us to take away once we'd eaten. Recommended.

This is a Germany bakery as Scotland struggles with great bakeries which are hard to find. This one is good but get there early. Located at a tram stop so east 2 get 2. the Doctor hit me with a helpful vote.

We visited on a busy Saturday morning, place was packed and a queue waiting to be seated. Glad we stayed as the eggs benedict were delicious and coffee top notch, the staff are really friendly, felt a bit sorry for them as they had to serve food whilst clambering over various dogs and customers kids, this policy of allowing pets...

My wife and I dropped in because we had time to spare, and that was fortuitous because we needed time to wait. The food was very good and worth waiting for.

Falko's staff were so friendly - we arrived before they were open but they let us come in and sit down anyway. There is a great breakfast menu and the coffee is excellent. It was good value and you can buy delicious breads, cakes and jam to take away.

A well staffed attractive coffee house with consistently good baking from their own original cafe and bakery in Gullane. Not the cheapest but nothing like it. Lots of staff to manage what can be a busy wee place.
