Really yummy pancakes

Personally I preferred this place to the much talked about Pancake Bakery. There is a good variety of pancakes. And the sweet and savour pancakes were extremely tasty.

I'd like to start off by saying that the staff at Pancakes! were very kind. We had to wait a bit because it was full, but once a table opened up, two of us were seated at a table of four. Someone came up and asked us if we could move to accommodate three people and, being former waitresses, we... More

We had to wait about 30 min or so to get in because the place is small and popular.the special of the day ( tomatoes cheese and pesto ) was delicious. Worth the wait and you leave pretty full :) friendly service also!

Yes I do like pancakes, please don't get me wrong, but no matter what you add into the pancakes, pancakes are just pancakes. Pancakes! Amsterdam serves quite okay pancake, but I do not understand the hype of it. When we reached, there was queue waiting outside and I think we've queued about half an hour for it. Like most shops...

This tiny restaurant puts together pancakes with unusual combinations of flavours that were unbelievably delicious. We had one that was savoury and one that was sweet. Large portions. Great coffee. Sat outside in a great people watching neighbourhood. Service was excellant.

Ate here based on recommendations from daughters. Average to good pancakes, slow service by urban hipsters. Not impressed.

We read about this and was so excited to go. Mostly because they had gluten free pancakes and I'm coeliac. We waited in line for about 15 minutes and then realized we barely moved and we must be stupid to stand in line this long just for pancakes. So we went next door and it was fabulous. A shame we...

While it is a nice place to eat a panekoek it is I believe a little over rated The queue is lining from 10 am as the place is opened and quite frankly I've eaten similar pancakes in other places in amsterdam So if you happen to be around and there is a free table go ahead if not there... More
