                                                            I can not recommend The Little Bakery highly enough. The service was five star, the chap serving went over abs above to make us feel welcome. He even brought a stool over for me to rest my broken healing foot. The food was exceptional even though they were absolutely run of their feet. All staff were friendly and professional again while trying to please a busy everyone in a busy cafe. The choice of cakes was thrilling, hard to choose in fact. I would highly recommend, maybe try a week day when it’s not so busy to get the full experience. It does carry out as well which was popular. Will definitely be going back.

                                                            Burger was alright, not much flavour to it though. Carrot cake was decent. Service a bit slow.

                                                            I was meeting a friend and I wanted to speak about things that were very sensitive. We were sitting right next to another couple so at times I felt anxious that they were overhearing my conversation. Perhaps if someone books a table attempt to sit them with a gap between others and obviously if walk ins occur then it can’t be helped.

                                                            The food and drinks were very good. But the cakes where to die for. Definitely a great end to a lovely coastal walk

                                                            I’ve visited this cute bakery on multiple occasions and it’s always been lovely. The food is amazing, both the sweet and savoury options. Love this place and definitely will be visiting again.

                                                            Very disappointing indeed. We both ordered the baked eggs and we were astounded to see how inconsistent it was cooked - the one with bacon was so overcooked that the egg resembled a piece of rubber and the bacon crumbled when poked with a fork while the one with salmon was so undercooked that one would have needed a spoon to eat the eggwhite. The service also didn't make up for the bad food - if we had waited to be seated as the sign at the door said, we'd still be standing there and if we didn't get up to pay at the counter we probably would still be sitting there waving at the waiters to try get their attention. Perhaps they knew how bad the food was and wanted to avoid having to ask if we enjoyed our breakfast. Not even the girl at the counter asked if we had a pleasant time. Other bakeries down the street seemed to have a much better atmosphere and the food looked great as we walked by - will rather try one of them on our next visit to South Queensferry.

                                                            Met a friend for a catch up & breakfast on Friday Jan 7th. Not eaten in Little Bakery before only had cake & coffee, we were not disappointed☺️ I had the baked eggs, with avocado, tomato, feta & spinach it was delicious!! My friend have eggs Benedict with avocado she’s said it was also yummy! I will defo be back to try more savoury treats from the menu. Staff are always welcoming & friendly. Baked good are always delicious looking, only thing I’d like to see is more that just a brownie for a Gf cake option.

                                                            Food was excellent, service was poor waitress forgot our order and if I didn’t go up to the counter to pay I’m sure we would still be sitting there. For a dog friendly cafe, might need to get servers that aren’t afraid of dogs.

                                                            our only gripe would be the toilet facilities are sub standard.

                                                            I was actually a but disappointed. Been here a few times and a it's been lovely. Went yesterday. Kids menu was limited due to my kids being lactose intolarant. Adult menu has vegan French toast but not kids. So my 4yr old had to have an adults portion of French toast. My son had the beef burger with no cheese. The wedges were covered in paprika, not great for kids. The burger was so spicy hot. It was too hot for both myself and my husband. Again not great for kids. When I cut it open the meat was pink, which I know is OK on beef but I'm not keen. There was also speckled with red either red peppers of chillies. Found a seed so I'm guessing the lateral as it's was so hot and the red veg I found. The decor needs freshened up and sadly due to covid the serves was slow. I completely understand that and it's no fault on them. They were very attentive and swapped my sons burger for beans on toast. - note they my their own baked beans so if your kids like baked beans it's not the same. Definitely back for cakes but not meals with kids.

                                                            We waited 45 mins from ordering for 3 brunches- for then to be told they hadn’t put through the kids pancakes- we had to point this out - the server didn’t think twice about only bringing out 2 meals for 3 people and walked away. No apology which is why we were so annoyed, mistakes can happen. Vegetarian and full breakfasts were very average. When we eventually got the kids pancakes- when the adults had almost finished they were good to be fair. Overall wouldn’t recommend and won’t be returning which is a shame.

                                                            Stood for over 5 minutes at the door and no one came to sit us down so we picked a table ourselves. No one came to offer us a menu for another 15 minutes and when they did they told us the table we were sat at was reserved so they moved us to the basement. We waited 30 minutes for our coffee and a further 15 minutes for our pancakes that were lukewarm at best. When we asked for our bill the waitress disappeared for a further 15 minutes so we had to ask someone else. Most slow service I’ve ever received, especially such a small cafe.

Service is usually very good but being a Saturday it was busy and the staff were working really hard to serve everyone. The cake selection is amazing and delicious.

                                                            A little disappointed this time as my cappucino was Luke warm and my scone was very dry. However, my previous visit was very good.

                                                            was disappointed with the level of service , had to ask three times for toast that came with the breakfast and it took over 20mins to arrive. the beans were dried and unappalling and it was streaky bacon ( not my preference)

                                                            Service very slow and food was hit or miss. Wouldn’t rush back.

                                                            One of my regular cafes to visit when I fancy a sweet treat! The best selection of cakes, brownies, buns, and biscuits I've ever come across. Also a varied menu with anything from veggie burgers to French toast. Hot chocolates are divine! Come with an appetite as portion sizes are big and most definitely worth it. Staff are friendly and helpful. Fantastic little gem of a bakery and cafe in the heart of South Queensferry!

                                                            A new discovery for us will certainly be back Had the afternoon tea, had booked the table but not the tea it should be pre ordered to allow the kitchen time. However they did this for us. Excellent with good variety and quality. Parking on the street is max 1 hour. Next time I will find alternative to enjoy the experience even more.
