Great selection, location, and food

This place is located in a square just a few minutes' walk from Leiden Centraal station with some outdoor tables overlooking the water. The selection of pancakes is overwhelming. They also have quite a few non-pancake dishes. We ordered the apple strudel pancake and a goat cheese salad and both... read more

I'll start with the second visit: I came here with a couple of work colleagues and everything was well timed, the staff was courteous, and the food was outstanding. I had the pancakes with cheese, bacon, and apples and will be ordering it again the next time I'm back because it was that good. I also had a sampling of... More

Obviously not gourmet dining, but the pancakes are well made, in large portions and served by friendly attentive staff. The restaurant was quite full, but still operated efficiently, with everybody contented.

A friend recommended Oudt Leyden and I'm very glad I went. They have a great atmosphere. It seems very good for tourists. They have a great selection and the biggest pancakes I've had on the Netherlands! I always suggest apple and bacon pancakes. Enjoy!

After trying out several pancake restaurants around Leiden, this is the only one I've tried more than once. Always delicious pancakes and always good service. I take visitors here all the time, and everyone always loves it.

This is an easy-to-find jewel of a place. They have over 20 kinds of pancakes, each the size of a medium pizza, and delicious. We looked askance at the size on other people's tables, then found ourselves finishing up the last bites! Good apple cider, friendly staff, and they were able to take our non-European credit card!

Very big, filling and tasty pancakes served in pleasant surroundings by friendly staff. Good value. I would happily return for more of the same.
