Finger lickin good! I had the red Thai curry pancake and my boyfriend had the regular pancake. We finished off with the poffertjes dusted in icing sugar! The entire meal from start to finish was plate lickin good! Can't wait to come back!

Total tourist trap! Not a local around to be seen. Mediocre pancakes. Won't give you a glass of water-insist on selling you a tiny bottle.

Had banana pancakes here twelve years ago and they were divine so on a romantic break this past weekend there was only one place I wanted to have breakfast. My other half ordered a Dutch breakfast and has been raving about it ever since - eggs were perfect, the portion size was huge and the service was very efficient. I... More

This place does the best pancakes ever! I ordered an omelette which was very tasty but my fiance had an Indonesian pancake, I thought he had made a strange choice at first but it was one of the best meals I've ever tasted! There were lots of choices of pancake, both savoury and sweet, and the savoury ones are named... More

We had to line up for about 15 minutes to get in for a table around lunch time on a Friday. It was well worth the wait though and we really enjoyed our pancakes. I went with a friend so we ordered one savoury and one sweet to share. The savoury was cheese and tomato which was really nice a... More

Probably the best pancake I've ever had. We came here after Anne Frank House. It is a short walk on the same side. I loved the fact they had a whole plant pot full of maple syrup with the wooden spoon on each table! I would recommend the pancake with nutella, banana and whipped cream.

The Dutch pancake is spoken of reverently by visitors and we made that our first stop. The Pancake Bakery is wonderful--the staff is very friendly and welcoming. We each had delicious pancakes, one Mexican and one Canadian. The waiters were great and menus are availalbe in English. A perfect lunch to fuel you along the canals.

My partner and I visited the Pancake bakery during a short break to Amsterdam and we adored the pancakes we ordered. Large portions and so much flavour! Absolutely delicious :)

Pretty average, slow service, got our order wrong and food was somewhat burnt and not that tasty. Could have given it a miss

The presentation and varities in of pancakes they have were unbelievable. You got to be there to believe it. Your eyes will feast at the art of its presentation, choices, and will satisfy your taste buds. It is crispy and fill you up. It is close to Anne Frank's Huis. If you eat at mid-afternoon you don't need to eat... More
