Wonderful, light pancakes with slightly crisped edges were very good. I had a pineapple one......nice to have something different for breakfast. The menu had great variety with all kinds of fruit or vegetable combinations. There were healthy choices and some not-so-healthy. Have had breakfast here a few times and never been disappointed. Also had a delicious Mimosa.

We thought that we'd give the Dutch Pancake Cafe a try for breakfast. The restaurant is clean and nicely decorated with a Dutch theme (windmills, delft tile, etc.). The menu has, understandably, a heavy focus on pancakes. While the food is tasty, it is very heavy and there is too much to eat. It's also pricey. The service was ok.... More

I was worried, some other reviews were not very good, but we had a great breakfast, it was mid week, service was good and quick. We each had a different Dutch pancake, and one was better than the next.

Dutch pancakes are a delightful treat - lots of interesting fruits, vegetables, and meats. If you ask, they will give you half of one and half of another. I like doing one sweet and one savory. Warning: coffee refills cost extra, so I ended up spending more than $5 for my 2 cups of coffee.

Don't miss trying the Dutch Pancakes, especially with the fresh strawberries and real maple syrup. Always stop for breakfast at least once on our annual vacation to Stowe.

I got a Dutch pancake with bananas and chocolate chips, which was amazing!!! My husband got eggs Benedict and he also enjoyed it very much! The service was a little sparse, our waitress didn't stop by very much and the restaurant had a slightly outdated feel but the food is well worth it!!! Be aware there are two entrances as... More

Any pancake on the menu or just bacon and eggs. It's all good. And the service is always consistently good.

We frequent the Stowe area throughout the seasons and happened to be staying the night in the area after a local wedding. Looking for a new place we have not been we connected on TripAdvisor before heading out for breakfast. The Dutch Pancake Cafe was highlighted as one of the best so we made the quick trip down mountain road... More
