    Very expensive compared with similar eateries in Falkirk area. South Queensferry attracts a lot of tourists so coffee shops (wrongly) capitalise in that. Nice enough but I won’t return, sorry.

    We have been to the cafe before and have found the food and service to be very good. On this occasion it was busy, the table was booked but wasn’t ready. We waited 20 minutes to get served. After our order was taken, coffee arrived but they had no cakes left of the type ordered. We were offered an alternative but then they weren’t available either, so we left. A bit of a shambles really.

    Loving the new menu and there’s no scrimping on servings although I think £10 far a bagel is a bit steep. It’s always busy here so great atmosphere, a real buzz about the place. I’ll definitely go back.

    Hoped there would be more vegan options for breakfast and children's menu. Unfortunately we arrived 30 mins too early for the lunch menu so tried our best to ‘veganise’ the veggie cooked breakfast. Staff weren’t confident about what was in what so had to accept that we may get something with an animal product in it barring the obvious scrambled eggs etc. we aren’t militant but like to avoid as best we can, Vegan cakes and ice cream were lovely though. Oh and the homemade baked beans!! Delightful. Atmosphere is great, perfect for families. Staff very friendly!

    Afternoon tea was very poor. Food was tasteless and the bread was definitely stale. The kids sandwich we got had no butter just plain dry brown bread with a very strange cheese, tasted odd and texture was unusual (possibly vegan?) Cakes and stones were very dry and not fresh. Mini lemon meringues were the only nice thing there. The milk was off or had been left out all morning as it was clumped and flaky when poured. Glad we tried it but definitely won't be returning

    Fantastic overall, only reason a slight markdown on service was there was a slightly longer delay than normal in food arriving from ordering, in all other aspects though we can’t fault the place, always look forward to visiting 👍🏻

    It says dog friendly on the label. It dies exactly what it says on the label. Good experience. Friendly staff. Shame parking isn’t closer, but that’s hardly the fault of The Little Bakery.

    This place is our local and regular and we absolutely adore it. Cakes, buns and main meals are all great quality and tasty! Staff are always friendly and accommodating. The cakes are delicious, it would be even more delicious if the filling is spread across each layer of the cake instead of just in the middle to really get the full flavour. We also wondered if it would be better to use a cake divider/portioner to cut the slices of the cake in advance before serving so they are pre-cut? As I said, the cakes are delicious but sometimes we find that one time we are given a good size slice (which is usually huge and fantastic) and other times a small slice but paying the same price, just thinking value for money wise. Would highly recommend though, and already booked in for our next visit.

    I used to really like this place but the service has gotten a lot worse. It had good vegan options but may have had a change of chef, as the porridge is really bland now. It used to be delicious. One of the vegan coffee/walnut cake was also quite stale. They’ve changed the layout downstairs and it’s not as cosy. They seated us out the way by the noisy kitchen, when there were 7 free tables in the main area (we’d made a reservation too). It’s fine for a coffee and you might get lucky with the service but it seems a bit of a lottery!

    The food was fine but I must say I was disappointed in the cleanliness and upkeep of the place. Wanted to visit this place for ages and it feels very tired. Wouldn't rush to visit again but it doesn't need much to get it back to what it probably was in the past.

    Went to treat my mum and gran to afternoon tea. The gentleman serving us was very accommodating with our needs! The only downside is we were placed in front of the door and the door was wedged open which meant we were constantly getting blown by the wind, no the most relaxing afternoon tea we’ve had, but the food was amazing!

    Lovely breakfast with my daughter and granddaughter. It was quiet when we arrived but took a while for someone to come and seat us which didn’t give a very good first impression. The servers were very friendly and the breakfast was very nice but seemed a little expensive for what we had.

    Slow service, undercooked eggs. At least they took them off the bill, but it was inedible.
