The Happy Pig Pancake Shop is a unique little shop, located in the heart of historic Amsterdam. We sell authentic Dutch pancakes and Belgian waffles with delicious fillings and toppings, made from high quality certified organic ingredients. Your pancakes are freshly made on the spot, you can watch the cook make them! We also serve great organic coffee, tea, hot chocolate, chai latte, fresh orange juice and premium cold drinks. We have an eating bar, and if the weather is good, you can sit on one of our benches outside. Or you can take your pancake and eat it while shopping. We sell Fritz-Kola en other cool drinks, and great gifts like stroopwafels en Tony Chocolonely bars.

The food is ok but not worth price. Everyone at the place when I came spoke English and I left wondering if I ate an "authentic" Dutch pancake or something made for tourists. Service is from a counter. I was able to get a seat...More

Visited with friends for breakfast, we were not disappointed. Being gluten free to find a pancake house offering buckwheat pancakes was a real treat, the apple filling was not too sweet which was a delight. Well worth a visit.

Absolutely brilliant little place that serves great pancakes. We had both the sweet and savoury. Delicious! Especially Henny’s special chutney sauce. You need to bottle it and sell it!

Found this small place literally by accident. Quite the original handheld pancake for eating on the run. One of the best ever!!!

Tiny, tiny place--tucked in a small street. BUT worth every bite! Pancakes are delightful, everything made to order. So many options available on the menu. Seating is an issue since this place is so tiny. We went early in the morning and had no issues.

We read about this place on trip advisor so we decided to give it a try. Yes it was nice but certainly wasn’t worth the €7 ish euros it cost per pancake which is extortionate. The shop is really cosy and small which gives a...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

Hi Danielle, we serve vegan pancakes, for the filling you can pick any of the fruits and for the topping you can choose maple syrup, one of the jams or sugar & lemon. Hope to welcome you in The Happy Pig Pancake Shop!
