There's a couple of Dutch Pannekoek restaurants where I live so I was craving a nice thin crepe-like pancake to eat. Both restaurants serve one large Pannekoek on large dinner plates. I think they are 14" pancakes. This place rolls their pancakes up after filling...More

Very small counter service worth the wait. Dutch pancakes were awesome. Strawberries were in season and unbelievable. It was the best of the bunch but the savory and sweet fig w Gouda rocked. Coffee was awesome. Give it a go.

We really enjoyed the pancakes, and it was worth the wait. The cappuccino was delicious. The only inconvenience was the size of the restaurant. Service was good.

Pancakes were nice, and milkshakes lovely, but the shop itself is very small and can become overcrowded quickly if there are queues. My daughter liked the chalkboard wall, nice feature for kids. Nice quirky place but could do with more space.

Really good vegan pancakes! And other good stuff as well! Cute little place that is located amongst quirky little shops and bars. Quite small onside though and if Therese are many people in line it will be full. Rekommend!

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
