“This is where we take everyone who visits Leiden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2015

My husband and I live in Leiden and we take everyone who visits here to eat giant Dutch pancakes. The atmosphere is great, the food is delicious (they also have a dinner and rotating lunch menu of non-pancake things if you have allergies that make pancakes impossible) and it's easy walking distance from the Leiden Centraal Station.

“Nice pancake, nothing excellent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2015

I went to this place to experience their pancake. Apparently the place is nice and clean. After going around Leiden, one can have a relax time here.
The service is also good. They serve things in a reasonable time.
For the food, they serve good pancake with a generous portion. However, I should like to say they sell the pancake slightly overpriced.
I recommend this place for the ones who are really fond of pancakes.

“Not the best pancakes we had in Holland”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2015

The location in central Leiden is good and the original styling and ambience pleasant but the pancakes unfortunately did not live up to expectation for us. Service was fairly slow and businesslike rather than friendly. The pancakes were large and filling but mine with bacon, apple and cheese had lots of apple, very little bacon and the cheese lacked flavour even for the relatively mild Dutch cheeses. Whilst the edges of the pancake were lovely and crisp, the centre was undercooked to raw, just set batter - and I'm a professionally trained cook! We tried other pancake houses in various parts of South Holland that were certainly better than this.

“Great selection, location, and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2015

This place is located in a square just a few minutes' walk from Leiden Centraal station with some outdoor tables overlooking the water. The selection of pancakes is overwhelming. They also have quite a few non-pancake dishes. We ordered the apple strudel pancake and a goat cheese salad and both were fantastic. Come hungry as the portion sizes are huge.

I did not have any of the problems others have listed with slow service - I was in and out in about 45 minutes.
