One of my favorite places for breakfast/brunch in Calgary. Lots of selection to choose from. Come early on the weekend or you could have to wait in line.

Love it, can't find pancakes like that anywhere else in Calgary. Just arrive early or be prepared to wait, every time I've been there I've had to wait for a table - but I keep going back.

Our family loves the crepes here!!! My spouse and I have the same favorite: bacon, smoked sausage and mushroom. My son's favorite is the banana and chocolate sauce crepe. During our last visit, my son attempted to eat a good portion of my crepe too! We've been here many times over the years. Every family member or friend that we... More

I am of Dutch origin and was really curious as to the authenticity... I had the bacon pancake, and for all intents and purposes, I could close my eyes and be on the beachfront at Scheveningen... Delicious! I am only sorry that they didn't have the traditional 'poffertjes', but I was more than happy with what I had. Service was... More

Hi Elsie R, Thank you for your kind review. As for more background info: The owner of the restaurant trained at a restaurant called De Bosrand, in Southern Holland. Then she came back here with one of the chefs from the restaurant to open up the Pfanntastic Pannenkoek Haus. Next time you are in the story is just in the... More

The food was amazing! I loved the selection of savory, sweet or sweet and savory crepes. I thought this place sounded "different" at first, something I might not like - but I loved it! The service was average, nothing special, seemed like somewhat of an annoyance to our waitress. Coffee is STRONG. Overall great restaurant.

My daughters have made this place a weekly visit for them. The pancakes are really large and very filling. I couldn't finish mine. Most of them are savory concoctions that work really well. The service is good and the place is clean and well maintained.

Hi Quentin S, Thank you for taking the time to review us. I am glad to hear that your girls have made our restaurant a weekly visit! Our pannenkoeks are quite filling, so a lot people share them between two or more people. Thank you for your patronage and your review. Hope to see you again soon! -Ariel, Pfanntastic Pannenkoek...

We go here for amazing crepes!! Both savory or sweet or both combined are fantastic! My husband will not eat Saskatoon Berry crepes anywhere else. The coffee is also great with a little cookie on the side! Great gift selections too. If you get there after 9:30 am, better be prepared to line up out the door!

Based on the customers' reviews I selected to visit this restaurant onFather's Day. It was quite busy and waited for 30 minutes to get a table. The service was excellent and the food was delicious.We were enjoyed our new experience and we are planning to go there again. In short the visit is worth the wait.

Recently our staff choose to indulge in this uniquely Dutch restaurant. There were ten of us there for lunch which not always easy to accomplish as this place is often packed out. The outside is nothing special plunked at the end of a small strip mall and parking is often tight. Inside you step back in time with the decor... More

Hi Steve M, I am glad to hear you enjoyed your visit. We did renovate a couple of summers ago, but we try to keep the decor authentic. The sauce on the table is called 'Stroop' and is made mainly of sugar beats, but you are right it is quite like molasses! Thank you for taking the time to review... More

The staff was very friendly and inviting. The food was awesome. The restaurant itself is a bit worn, but go for the food not for ambiance! On a Sunday afternoon about 2 pm it was packed, but I only had a short wait for a table. They are only open until about 3 pm on Sundays, so my timing was... More
