“Delicious!!!”
Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

We ate here for dinner on a whim because it looked so cute as we passed by it on the tram every day. We sat outside and enjoyed the views and watching the people pass by. The pancakes were absolutely scrumptious, my 15 y.o. son and I each had a savory pancake of ham and cheese and split a banana pancake for dessert. We were mad at ourselves for waiting til the last day to eat here, had we known it was soooo delicious and the atmosphere was so peaceful, we would have eaten here every day. Don't miss out, this quaint little place is a gem!

“Great Pancakes”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Great Pancake place near Leidesplein. It is next to the canal and you can sit outside if the weather is good. We had breakfast here twice during our stay and both times the pancakes were delicious. There is a choice of savoury or sweet pancakes, I had the apple and cinnamon both times with great coffee. The waitress staff are very friendly and efficient. If you sit inside you can watch your pancake being made. If I am back in Amsterdam will certainly visit this restaurant again.

“Nice Location - Great Friut Pancakes”
Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

Right on the canal in shadow of giant tree, outdoor seating in the shade. The place specializes in pancakes with sugar, cream and fruit. We ordered the small pancakes with strawberries and cream and they were perfect. Nice cappuccino to top off this treat. Friendly service.

“Life-saving”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

We were staying just across the road at a hotel with very Amsterdam restaurant prices and found this a great to enjoy our food while preserving our budget. It would be a 5 if it had more choice of savoury pancakes: definitely a five for sweet. Eating outdoors gave us great people-watching views of the canal. Highly recommended and we'd have been back even more given a greater choice. Incidentally, beer isn't on the menu, but is served if you ask.

“Nice spot to relax and have a bite”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

This restaurant is located along side the canal that runs next to Stadhouderskade. We stopped here for a light meal and sat out on the patio. The patio has an excellent view of the canal.

We ordered a savoury and a sweet crepe and split them between us. Both crepes were very good and really hit the spot. I also had a very nice mint tea (complete with mint leaves). The service was good.
