The List Food & Drink Guide 2011

Whether it's the midweek ladies who lunch or the young professionals who come for a weekend brunch, Bruntsfield's Falko enjoys a loyal following. Functioning first as a delicious bread and cake shop, German born Falko Burkert has shown how humble beginnings at Edinburgh Farmers' Market led to this café and sister venue in Gullane. A bustling, colourful counter greets you as you walk through the doors, filled with lemon cake, black forest gâteau, thick, creamy slabs of chocolate cake, fruit tarts and more. Pretzels hang temptingly and the delicious smell of coffee permeates through the pretty café space beyond. The weekend brunch here is a bit of a star, coming in at just under £10. + The extraordinary breads - Slightly slow service during busy times
