“Not sure what all the fuss is about...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

My Husband and I came here after reading the reviews on tripadvisor when we fancied some dutch pancakes, it was fairly out of the way but thought it was worth it - it really wasn't, I wouldn't recommend anyone going out of their way to try this place, you'll find the same standard anywhere offering pancakes - if not better.
I had a savoury pancake, it was burnt, unseasoned and inedible. My husband faired better, but it wasn't amazing. The staff were forgettable - not bad service but not the best.
It's got little ambiance.
After sitting for a long time to get our plates cleared / offered coffees we opted to leave and found the lovely Lunchcafe Nielsen across the street where we enjoyed amazing cake and coffees - if you're in this area looking for breakfast / lunch the go here instead not Pancakes!.

“Nice breakfast in the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

I always start my tourist day having the US breakfast (maple syrup crispy bacon pancakes + fresh orange juice & latte) in this warm cosy place, ideally located. A big expensive but really tasty !

“Tiny, brisk, tasty..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Small but perfectly formed pancake cafe - I had bacon, peppers, mushrooms and cheese - plenty of other options, including vegetarian. Excellent lunch stop, fuelling up for a day tramping the cobbles.

“Cozy hideaway with great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

Thanks to tripadvisor we found out about this place, it's hidden away on the streets near Anne Franks House Museum, we had a wait for a table but it was well worth it! The pancakes are fantastic, worth it for the experience alone!
