... we beat the queue, but still didn't manage to be sat outside. Had 'three in a pan'. Great. There was certainly a queue by the time we left. Very happy with Pancakes.

Pancakes was delightful and delicious. We had a much better meal and friendlier service here than at other pancake places in Amsterdam.

There was actually a long line outside of this restaurant. The place is small and cozy, with a pretty decent selection of pancakes ranging from traditional Dutch pancakes to regular American pancakes.

Please note that this place closes at 7pm, but really stop accepting people at 6:45. So go anytime before then! I had to run to get there last minute but they were kind enough to let me in. I ordered the apple pancakes, it was okay, a bit too much to chew in my mouth with the nuts and apples.... More

We came last year to Pancakes! Amsterdam for a great first visit. When we planned our trip to Amsterdam this year we made this one of our "must do" stops. My wife is gluten free and she and I both had the best savory pancakes we've ever experienced. The restaurant is crowded but worth the wait, and the food was... More

We got there not too long after they opened for the day. A short wait had formed on the sidewalk in front. After about 20 minutes, we were seated. Our order was quickly taken and service was great. It's a small place with about 12-15 tables (I didn't count but it's pretty small). Not great for big groups. The pancakes... More

Menu and taste were fantastic! The cafe itself is quite trendy! We arrived about 9.30 and got the last table outside, a queue formed shortly after. Our only negative was the waitress dealing with us as she made very little effort to interact and appeared fairly grumpy! However it may have just been a bad day and I wouldn't let... More

Best pancakes ever! It was definitely worth the wait (the place was packed when we came, so we had to wait around 15min to get a table). Of course, we know that this is ALWAYS a good sign, right? We all had a mix of the large Dutch pancakes as well as the 3 smaller and thicker American style pancakes.... More
