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.

To be honest I just didn't expect to be taken to a German bakery/cafe in Edinburgh! But I was and it was really very good! Coffee was to a high standard, and the food was full of flavour. A little busy at lunchtime on Sunday - but thats a good thing obviously! Staff quite relaxed - my observation would be... More

On the way back from the town decided we needed a wee refreshment. Stopped of a Falko's for a coffee and a hot chocolate. Probably the best hot chocolate I have ever had. We shared an apple strudel which was so big we didn't finish it. Not the first time we have stopped here and it will definitely not be... More

We have given Falko a final chance! Every single time we have been in the last 3 months there has been some kind of problem, ranging from very slow-service, not enough staff, cafe open but not ready to serve and finally today, we tried to go for breakfast and were told the kitchen's closed with no other explanation. Why bother... More
