“Perfect pancakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

A rainy day in Leiden was cheered up tremendously by a visit to this restaurant before catching the train. It was warm, with welcoming staff and lively with families and groups of friends of all ages enjoying the food. Orders were taking by a helpful waitress and the huge and beautiful pancakes were delivered in good time. The pancakes (Apple and Bacon) were perfectly cooked and delicious. We decided to go for the special for dessert, poffertjes (small lens shaped pancakes) with cream and strawberries. We were delighted to see the arrival of a large order of poffertjes with butter and powdered sugar with a massive helping of ripe strawberries. They were absolutely delicious and after this all we could do was to roll to the train station. A perfect end to a great visit to Leiden.

“Traditional Dutch pancakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

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

“The Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

We have visited The Netherlands 6 times but our first time in Leiden. We have eaten many Dutch pancakes which are totally different from American pancakes. This restaurant is by far the best when it comes to preparing both savory and sweet Dutch pancakes. The atmosphere is relaxed and very quaint. The plates which they serve the pancakes on are lovely. A must!!!

I was greeted cheerfully and had a great meal. It was interesting to see the variety of pancakes offered. I did not find anything to dislike about the restaurant.
