It has moved away from Gullane so can't rate. Rating based on previous visit. It is now in Haddington.

Whereas the original Falko’s in Gullane was cosy, intimate and bright, the new Haddington cafe is none of these. It’s dark, cramped and with tables packed closely together. The fare is similar - great cakes provided you don’t want gluten-free; as is the service - relatively efficient but rather impersonal; and the coffees - variable, sometimes good and small. But the charm and intimacy of Gullane are gone.

Service was great, really friendly chatty guy, not full on. The latte I received was really smooth and not to strong.

Now open in Haddington. This in my humble opinion is a loss for Gullane but will be a superb boost for Haddington.
Simply fantastic place to be, very nice new premises in Haddington, although a little further for us to travel it will be worth it.
Our plans for coffee and cake took a nose dive as soon as we entered the door as the display fridge was empty. Not a cake to be had, easy seen Haddington folk are keen to try out this new place. So our coffee and cake turned out to be a sandwich and tea. Not to worry as we were definitely coming here anyway. We have been to Falko’s many times in the past between his Edinburgh shop and Gullane. Never disappointed, always fantastic quality. Now maybe not the cheapest place to be, but sometimes cheapness is not always best. Sometimes a bit of quality is worth that bit more. The sandwich was lovely and up to the usual standard and what does this mean of course? Well, we will just have to come back another day for coffee and cake. As stated before we have never been disappointed here and look forward to more visits to Haddington. Staff as helpful and friendly as usual, if not a little on the busy side. But this must be a good sign for the future and means that Falko will just have to make more cakes!!!!!
We will be back.

Unfortunately don’t accept bookings, was busy so had to wait for table, waited about 10 minutes so not too bad. Waitresses behaved as didn’t want to be there, not attentive or polite. Very nice decor, environment and atmosphere. Menu limited but food very nice. Had to ask for table to be cleared 15 minutes after we finished. Lot of staff behind counter and appeared to be in top of each other rather than out on the floor providing good table service. Would suggest at peak times they need to introduce booking system and it’s critical they up the game on customer service and for someone to intensely manage the table service because today the service was extremely poor and provided by what appeared to be inexperienced staff that didn’t want to be there. Get the service and staffing right and it will be a great place to go!
