Nice old little restaurant in the middle of the beautiful city Leiden. They serve big and delicious pancakes!! As a Dutchman, I know pancakes, and I have eaten quite a few in my life. Not those thick fluffy American pancakes, that immediately absorb the sirup, the moment you pour it on the pancake!! No, I am talking about the flat... More

After a walk in the town, we stopped for lunch here, as advised by a friend, for pancakes. The service was really friendly and fast, there are a lot of pancake options, sweet and savoury. They are tasty and huge, so be prepared!

This is a lovely place to experience the ultimate Dutch treat: pancakes! Centrally located in the heart of Leiden. I recommend you try with bacon and apple, smothered in syrup. Ultimate yummy. And the beauty of it all, I had mine gluten-free!

Great food, service and interior. We had friends over from Japan and took them here together with their 2 children. For all of us there was plenty to choose from and the quality was excellent.

This is a great spot for traditional Dutch pancakes. Not the thick, covered-in-syrup American ones, but super thin, with all the condiments you want. Personal favourite: a pancake with bacon, apple and raisins and then pour the Dutch syrup on it. Enjoy!

It was warm, with welcoming staff and lively with families and groups of friends of all ages enjoying the food. Orders were taking by a helpful waitress and the huge and beautiful pancakes were delivered in good time. The pancakes (Apple... More
