“Good light meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

We were looking for a place to eat dinner late. It was 930 and we were walking around to find a place to eat. We stumbled upon it by accident. I had the pancake with pineapples and my sister had the pancakes with cinnamon and apples. It was very good and it was very quick. There are also two cats that were sleeping under the big table. It was close to closing but we did not feel rushed. They closed at 10. They had multiple choices of pancakes. The fries looked good also but they are all over Amsterdam!!

“Hello Kitty”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

First day in Amsterdam and not used to cats running around restaurants. But being a "cat person", I'm okay with that. My husband had a lamb dish and I had something called Hutspot - which I must admit was tasty but included one of the strangest meatballs I've ever encountered.

“We always come to eat pancakes here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

We never tried other things in their menu actually. But the pancakes are great - both sweet and "main course". Prices are very nice (less than 10 euro for most pancakes), highly recommended!

“Great stop for pankaces during lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

Just close from the Anne Frank House a fee metres away. This location offers great pankages for lunch, which will surely compensate in case you have also missed breakfast and you are really hungry. Pancakes are from 7-10,-and will fill up your stomack for the rest of the day. The 2 cats Nicki and Micki make it a enjoyable experience in case they come out. Usually they are sleeping under the big table. We went their twice for lunch for pancakes, really great.

“Excellent cafe near Anne Frank House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

This was the first eating place that we could find in the Anne Frank House area, and we had good value burger and lovely tasting home made chips.
They seem to specialise in steaks and pancakes, which we didnt have on this occassion, but I saw other diners pancakes and they looked lovely.

There seemed to be 2 resident cats, which may put some people off, but didnt bother us.
