Stopped for lunch. Prompt and friendly service. Space is fairly clean but dated. The lunch menu seemed interesting so we tried a variety of items. The large pancake was a hit. The sandwiches, soup, sides and fries were a let down. The issue clearly lies with the kitchen. A little more attention to each item would have really benefitted them.... More

Went to breakfast here with brother and sister in law and had a lovely breakfast. The waitress was attentive and kept our coffee mugs filled, the servings were huge and we got our order quickly. The restaurant is decorated to reflect the Dutch heritage of the town and community and you can order fresh baked goods to go. I have... More

After a long wait at the border while on our way from Vancouver, BC to LaConner, WA we ended up taking a circuitous route that included Lynden just in time for a late breakfast. We were warmly welcomed and taken through to a side room furnished with comfortable and interesting curious reflecting the Dutch heritage of the farming community. Our... More

Everything was delicious! Friendly service, unique decor. A really nice place. We had biscuits and gravy and chicken fried steak, and agreed they were the best we ever had.

Delicious food! And big portions. I hate it when food is good but small portions and you leave hungry. But this is delicious home cooked food and LARGE portions...enough for us to reheat for breakfast the next morning! After seeing Yelp pictures of the pancakes - we ordered the pecan apple pancake and it was huge! Served with a cup... More

My expectations were exceeded when my breakfast, one of the " slightly smaller breakfasts" on offer, was placed before me -- a large serving of delicious hash browns, beautifully scrambled eggs loaded with chunks of tender ham and plenty of mild cheddar cheese, wholegrain toast, and what tasted like homemade strawberry freezer jam! I ate until I could eat no... More

Do all Dutch mothers cook like this ??? wonderful 16" Dutch pannoken , like a big thick flat crepe, served with assorted toppings, I just had butter and syrup so other flavors didn't interfere with my first impressions. Really great ! Also had eggs, so good they must be local, and what can only be called farm bacon, really a... More

This Dutch themed restaurant has a few interesting items on the menu, but is rather pricy. It is only one of a limited number of local restaurants that is sizeable enough for a larger dinner party. Nice atmosphere, varied seating. Not a really good choice for lunch if you are in a hurry. It is right downtown, so you are... More
