We ordered a pancake with salmon and pancake with ham, cheese, mushroom and bacon asked for addition of paprika.Both tasted absolutely tasty and worth the price. Also everyone was so friendly and polite. The town is a quaint little... More

Big pancakes - do you go for savoury or sweet one? Well if you hungry go for both! Good service, good choice - well worth a visit.

The "pancake" was so much fun to eat. The variety was tremendous and the dining experience was fun. If spacious eating is what you want, you might feel a little squeezed, but it is SO worth the stop.

Stopped in for coffee and pastry on an overcast day. Cosy place with nice wood panelling. Very good coffee, apple tart and strawberry-waffle. Friendly service.

Go in with an empty stomach and leave completely satisfied and full. The area is great for relaxing and this restaurant has a couple of seats you can sit out in the sun. Service was good and the pancakes were excellent. Would recommend.

Huge choice of different pancakes, both sweet and hearty. Other things as well. We had different pancakes, all 40cm in diameter, making it quite a challenge for my young daughter. Very friendly staff. Close to museums.

Typical large pancakes, with a wide choice of toppings, in a nice traditional place (like a brown cafe). Friendly service when not too busy.

I read the reviews here and was curious and sceptical at the same time. What can be so special about pancakes? Well, these pancakes are good but price probably includes the fancy plates and the history of this restaurant. Overpriced. Probably not much better than other pancake restaurants in Leiden.

We have visited this restaurant many times if we are in Holland but always forget to write a review. This time, we did it. For us, this restaurant serve the best pannekoek. The base and its topping are just simple but tasty.

While you're here, eat some traditional Dutch food! We had savory pancakes (more like thin crepes) with ham and cheese. Nice people and good food.
