“A Little Gem off the Beaten Path.”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

My expectations of what a pancake is drastically changed after eating breakfast here. It was our last full day and we were going hiking so we wanted to get in a good breakfast before we headed out. We asked a local who worked at the hotel where we could grab a good breakfast around the area. She suggested this place. It was a little off the beaten path where either you have to know where it is or have to be a local of Aruba. It is located near the vicinity but away from the main hotel and shopping district. It doesn't look fancy. On the outside there is seating but the views are of the road, the two other restaurants next door and the gas station on the other side. This with the location of it being away from the main drag makes this a hole in the wall gem.
The choices of pancakes and customized pancakes makes the choices limitless. Throw some peanut butter and jelly, or some fruit, chocolate, honey or liqueur in your pancake. The decision is yours. I ended up getting an apple chocolate chip pancake with a cup of coffee that was delicious and also tried the ham and gouda cheese pancake my father got. The pancakes come out almost like crepes and the fruit is baked into the pancake making it very unique. Staff and wait staff was very friendly. Loved this place and will come back next time I come back to Aruba.

“Yummmm Banana Liqueur”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

It was my first time having Dutch pancakes and I was blown away with how good they were! My son ordered the apple bacon and was just as pleased. We also had a side order of eggs. Great breakfast spot. We will return.

“A very delicious breakfast”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

I have fallen in love with Dutch Pancakes all because of the restaurant in Aruba called Linda's. I had to go back there three times during my vacation. I am now going to buy a Dutch Pancake pan and try and make them at home, but they will not be like the ones at Linda's.

“Fabulous Pancakes, But They Also Have Eggs & Toast etc!”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

We were not sure whether to go here because everyone in the party was not up for just pancakes. However, they do have multiple other breakfast/brunch items such as eggs, toast, butter etc etc. The pancakes are large and thin, what many would call crepes, and are available in many different varieties. We tried sliced banana, whipped cream, strawberries and chocolate sauce. The service was outstanding.
Give Linda's a try!

“Great pizza!”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

We stopped here for lunch on the way back from an outing one day and the pizza was great! We intended to come back and try the pancakes, but we ran out of time. I was worried my kids wouldn't like it because sometimes kids only like what they know, but they both LOVED the pizza. We had one pepperoni with mozzarella and one hawaiian style with gouda cheese and they were both delicious! Great value, service, food, but location is fair - in a strip center.
