Hit the spot before the game

We were on a tight schedule as my kids had to play a game at a nearby arena and this was the best rated place in the area. We stopped in without a reservation and luckily they were able to seat us. We ordered four make your own Pannenkoek's and I got the orange soup as well. The butternut... read more

Be prepared to wait - but it is worth it. This is a Dutch type of crepe/pancake that you get either a savoury topping or sweet topping. They are sooooooo good & it is hard to choose. The best way is to go with a friend and split - the Best of Both Worlds!! (like cheese, onion, potato with sour... More

I have been to the Netherlands and back several times and whenever I eat pannenkoken I always compare it to this place. Only a couple places in the Netherlands have been comparable. This is one of the absolute best restaurants in Calgary. If coming for breakfast be prepared to wait, just go inside put your name on the list, and... More

Went here a few weeks ago, and it was very yummy! I had been here previously and brought my boyfriend who had never been- he also loved it! the portions are huge! My only complaint with it was the fact that we went on a Saturday- it was busy (which was expected) and a line up out the door, the... More

My daughter loves this place because of their famous dessert pancake with chocolate ice cream, and whipped cream. It's my excuse to enjoy the dessert as well. I often order the Farmers Omelette which is always consistently fresh and delicious. We are regulars.

We had to try this place as it was recommended by, "you got to eat here" and the reviews on trip advisor were very good. We went to this place on a Sunday morning and were prepared for a line up. We had to wait for about twenty minutes, which isn't too bad. It's a nice change to a typical... More

If you love pancakes, this restaurant will be definitely up your alley. I've been meaning to go here for over a year, but it wasn't until very recently that I was finally able to enjoy a lunch with some family. The ambiance is quaint, but clean, and the service was quick and friendly. I saw on some reviews that there... More

We've been visiting this restaurant for years. Their specialty, Dutch pannenkoeks, are one of a kind in Calgary. Thin like a crepe and loaded with toppings like a pizza, you have a choice between sweet or savoury. My favorite is potato onion bacon and cheese and hubby always orders apple bacon cheese. In season, look for the fresh strawberry Pannenkoek... More

Love pancakes? This is the place to go! Pannenkoeken (pancakes) are at the top of the list of foods which characterize Holland. And to find this so far away and in Calgary is a most pleasant and delightful surprise. The cooks were trained in Holland and the variety and quality of the food attest to this. The menu offers many... More
