Excellent for health concious people. Having special dietary needs, this restaurant will make exeptions to serve it the way you need. The wheat bread is phenominal, and toated with a grilled chicken breast and guacomoli makes it a very healthy choice for many diet needs.

Good food, very a good price. The staff are very nice, and it was great trying something new. It is worth the try and it's really close to Mayo

Iced orange cranberry muffin I have ever had in my life! On my first trip to Rochester, I happened to find an open parking spot in front of the store, so I went in to see what a pannekoeken was. I spotted no less than 15 different kinds of muffins on display. I ordered one and it was supposed to... More

We were on our way to another restaurant when we chanced upon this restaurant. Pannekoenen is a Dutch pancake but the restaurant serves other kinds of dishes too. The good was good and the overall ambience was relaxing. This is an ideal place for a family meal.

This is a dutch pancake house and serves tasty breakfasts. I ate here twice and had two very different experiences because of the waitresses. First time the food was great, the waitress checked back to see if I needed anything, I got the bill in a timely fashion. Second time, I had a long a long wait for someone to... More

I think you have missed out if you do not eat at Pannekoeken at least once for breakfast in downtown Rochester. They may not have the fanciest place in town but the service is excellent and the food is very good. They have seasonal pannekoekens which make the visit even more exciting.

Just had to try the Pannekoeken and it was really, really good. I'd never had one before, so I was very impressed. The restaurant itself is not fancy, but it is very comfortable and a good place for breakfast.
