To avoid the crowds, we were there at 9am on a rainy Saturday. We got seated immediately and the friendly waitress quickly brought us water and menu, with a warm, genuine smile. I turned around and there are people leaving and more people coming! Thank goodness we we in. Browsing the extensive menu choices of savory and sweet pancakes, we... More

I hadn't been to Pannenkoek Haus in over a decade when I thought I would give it a try this weekend. The food was delicious and even better than I remembered however my entire visit was tainted by the extreme disorganization of being seated. I arrived at 10am to a large line up out the door, the only visible sign... More

After a day spent at the Heritage Park Historical Village (a short drive away), we stopped at the Pfanntastic Pannenkoek Haus for dinner. It was our first visit. My husband, daughter, and I each ordered a different savory pannenkoek (Dutch crepes with the fillings mixed into the batter). They were really good, but we found that we were eating too... More

Great place for breakfast and lunch, quaint, with character and a 'family-run' atmosphere that I appreciate. The food is well-made, tasty, and interesting, with something for everyone of various ages. We've returned many times and often treat visitors from out of town to the experience! It gets very busy on weekends so get there early or be prepared to wait.

A family owned and operated business where the service is expedient and friendly. Completely different from traditional North American fluffy pancakes, these are 12 inch round crepe style pancakes cooked to perfection with the toppings of your choice and served with a thick, dark, beet sugar syrup.

I can't tell you how much I love this place. Consistent, delicious, unique food that doesn't disappoint. Staff are quick at getting people in and out so even though there's a wait, it's reasonable. Absolutely worth the wait.

I was very excited when I heard about a Dutch pancake place in Calgary. Finally had a chance to try it out, but I was very disappointed. First of all, on the website they claim to be authentic Dutch pancakes. Well let's start with the name itself. It is silly at best. Pfanntastic and Haus are German, not Dutch. Ambiance... More
