We tried the Dutch pancakes in 5 different flavors. Mine was bacon, paprika, and two or three other ingredients. I really enjoyed that. We also had the sweet pancakes too. Awesome also. I wasn't impressed with the cheese and raspberry sauce pancake. Overall, great place and close to Centraal Station so you can grab a bite before your adventures. Keep... More

My friend and I were looking for a place to eat authentic Dutch food and we saw this cafe so we decided to give it a try. Great dutch pancake and the atmosphere was good too. Downside is they only accept cards (except visa electron, but visa is accepted).

This place is great for tourists, they have a diverse selection of American pancakes and pannakoeken, dutch pancackes prepared like a crepe. Both are served in sweet, savory varieties, or a-la-carte. They open at 9ish, Amsterdam traffic is...dufficult, and don't accept cash. Enjoy...

I came here with my husband for my birthday lunch while in Amsterdam. I was VERY excited for a selection of gluten free pancakes. Luckily, the wait was only about 20 minutes. I walked by a few days later and the line looked much longer. The restaurant is small, so be ready to get close to the neighboring tables. Service... More

We came for breakfast for my friend's bday and we loved it. The Dutch pancake is brilliant- we made our own as well as one from the menu (#11) It was simply wonderful. The ingredients are fresh and the service is friendly. We had to go for a sweet one too. We really enjoyed and highly recommend it.

I was advised by the server to try the apple pancake with vanilla ice cream side. It was marvellous. I found it real tasty and the pastry from which the pancakes were made were fluffy. The service was good too.
