The List Food & Drink Guide 2012

A firm fixture on Edinburgh’s foodie scene Falko continues to deliver goods be it rye breads, pastries or some of the finest, traditional cakes outside of central Europe. Produced to strict standards, no raising agents are used in the cakes, only beaten egg whites and the Black Forest gateau includes a minimum of 10% Kirsch in its whipped cream. If you can find a table (by no means guaranteed) then there are also options such as ham and cheese platters available from a short but well executed menu.The small space manages to feel neither cramped nor cluttered due to its crisp, clean interior with little quirks such as the antique bicycle and army helmet preventing it from feeling sterile. + Unmissable cakes - Tables fill up quickly, especially at weekends
