Great huge sweet and savory pancakes to share or to stuff yourself !! The service is good and friendly but a bit slow. The food came fast and was very tasty and perfectly made. I then ordered a powdered sugar one which was excellent. The food is very fairly priced and the location in the centre of Leyden very convenient... More

The selection of Dutch pancakes here is awesome; their soups are great too. We started with onion soup and then I had a delicious pancake with bacon, apples and cheese. My wife had a wonderful cheese and mushroom pancake. The pancakes are very thin and are about 15 inches across. We had some pancakes in Amsterdam that were nowhere near... More

The service is awesome, the waiter was very nice and explained and showed us anything we didn't know what it was. He guided us in our (very hard) decision about what to choose to eat and drink XD Even though prices might seem a little high, the quantities fully respect the costs. In fact, since we weren't able to finish... More

Very "dutch" food. Nice place with nice staff. Meat are expensive but not so much. I went twice for dinner - big, tasteful pannenkoekens. Try the fresh mint tea with pannenkoekens (pancakes).

Best pancakes in town IMHO. Great old world feel. I like the spek pancake with syrup. My wife the banana Nutella . Either way a nice place with consistent quality vs price . Around €8 simple pancake

There is no better place to eat "pannekoeken" (Dutch for pancakes) in the whole Netherlands. This cozy restaurant, located in the center of Leiden, not only serves a vast assortment of pannekoeken but does it in style, presenting them in beautiful Delft Blue big plates. The ambiance is nice, nice wooden chairs and tables and very good service.

I came into the restaurant at a rather busy timing, all the tables were full. The pancake took a while to arrive at my table but was expected, and the wait was reasonable. I had bacon pancake and it was the biggest pancake I've seen. The taste, of course, was really good; never thought bacon would go so well with... More

During our visit to Leiden, we went to this restaurant three times. The pancakes are very delicious and presented on huge platters. You can tend towards sweet or not. My favorite was bacon, apple and raisins. Everyone had their favorite flavors. All brought to you steaming and ready to eat. You can make reservations or just show up as they... More

A different way of serving pancakes: several oblong pancakes fused together on a huge round plate, barely enough room on an outside table for 2 plates. I thought a limited range of toppings and not very imaginative but nevertheless, good food.
