The restaurant had wonderful crepes selections. The dining was great we sat outside which is wonderful in Aruba. The service was great and friendly. A good place to check out. Good location to shopping and just taking in the sights.

We stopped here for a quiet, delicious breakfast. We ordered one savory pancake, and a plate of poffertjes. Both were fantastic.

It is a unique food to have for breakfast with a very thin pancake the size of a dinner plate or many pancakes the size of a half dollar and the location was good with a view of the yachts in the harbor. We had breakfast on the later side and it took a while to get the food. It... More

This pancake house is right in the Renaissance mall, close to both Renaissance hotels. We stopped by for a late breakfast and it was packed! The little Dutch pancakes, poffertjes, are amazing. I had 1/2 order and that was plenty for me. My husband had the pancake with bacon and cheese and it was amazing as well. The setting is... More

We really enjoyed our breakfast here. Very popular spot, so we had to wait a few minutes for a table. Food was very tasty and service was good. Prices are fairly high though. Worth a visit once for breakfast.

These aren't the bowl shaped Dutch Baby or German Pancakes common at American pancake houses, but a wonderful pancake that's roughly like a triple thickness open faced crepe which you can order with a variety of ingredients, from fruit to chocolate, to savory choices such as ham, cheese, or tomato. They also have silver dollar sized ones if you want... More

We took our kids here and left stuffed. The menu is reasonable priced and the pancakes are HUGE. We each ordered something different and shared amongst ourselves. They actually offer free refills on their coffee so we drank quite a bit and it was delicious. Service was great and the waitress was pleasant. Not sure how they make their bacon,... More

Very good, you have to try the poffertjes, little bitesized pancakes but more light and fluffy than traditional American pancakes. Their "pancakes" are thinner and looked more like crepes although we didnt try those. Nice covered outdoor dining area. Located in between the conferance center and the Rennaissance Hotel.
