Very good. Wish it opened before 9 am. Coffee and lemon, pofferjes, strawberry with cream and a plain pancake were all great.

We stayed at the Marriott so the location couldn't be better for us. The service was great, nice and quick. The food was perfection, both in flavor and in temperature. We will be definitely be coming back. Kudos to you!

Easily the best poffetjers we've had while in Amsterdam. The plain ones with sugar and butter are the best bet. Very friendly and helpful employees. And the cappuccino was very good too!

After using up all our energy in the museums and the great surroundings, we loved this hidden old-fashioned place where food was served promptly. The views over the canal made the experience relaxing, yet the space around the restaurant was not terribly clean, which is...More

Really great food. The poffertjes are simply sublime. Looks a bit too touristy to be this good, but it is indeed really nice restaurant.

It is a great place to have very delicious pancakes and enjoy a canal view. The service was excellent, it was a feeling as we visited our grandma who was expecting with her homemade pancakes. Really lovely place!

Yes, they do. Most of their pancakes are gluten-free. My daughter who is very sensitive had no symptoms. The waitress that served us was gluten-free by choice but told us that all the gluten-free food is cooked with great... More
