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!

Absolutely delicious. Went there with friends and the pancakes were the size of a big pizza. You can choose either sweet or savory and they have a website with a menu. They also accept reservations. Very good atmosphere
