I miss the Dutch Pancake House most of all out of my entire trip to Aruba! (I love food, okay?!) The service was great, the Dutch pancakes delicious, and comparable to other places around it was reasonably priced, too. Good coffee as well. I recommend the Nutella and strawberries- so good!

I got the pancake with the fruit medley on top. The pancakes are delicious! They're thin like crepes, more savory, and the sprinkle of powdered sugar is just yum! It's expensive for breakfast, but it's a local spot you must try. If you're not a fan of pancakes, you're not going to find anything pancake-free here. My husband had their... More

We almost settled for a sandwich at another restaurant when we came across this place. Unique menu. It was hard to choose. We shared a Dutch pancake with ham and cheese -- excellent. And we shared cinnamon poffertjes (Dutch silver pancakes) -- wonderful! We liked it so much, we timed another trip downtown so we could stop for lunch again... More

This place is downtown, near the renaissance hotel. We sat outside, near the live music which was very nice. Our servers were attentive and very pleasant. We ordered a schnitzel to split and a dessert pancake to split. Both were spectacular. I am a fairly big eater but I could not have eaten the entire schnitzel by myself. The potatoes... More

The Dutch Pancake House is the best place for breakfast in Aruba! We look forward to the Pancake House each time we visit Aruba. My husband always gets Peach on the Beach and I love the Fruit of the Forest. The menu is extensive. There were 8 of us and everyone loved their selections. The waitress was so nice. Actually...

Great food, great service and affordable prices! Try the dutch pancake ( you can order half savory and half sweet if you are not that hungry ) for an unique experience. The cappuccino is also excellent and depending on the time of the day you get to listen to live music! Recommended for breakfast !

Thank Tati C
