Probably one of the best pancake places in town: variety in both savory and sweet option and great taste. Prices OK. Nothing special on the drinks menu, there is room for improvement. Same on the Service side. Friendly, but no extra mile.

Had the Dutch pancakes with strawberries, whipped cream and Nutella came to about €14, service was great and the location beside the canal is beautiful!

My wife wanted me to try Dutch pancakes because her Oma used to make them. Well, well. The Dutch sure can make pancakes — best pancake ever. Bring these to Canada, please. Delicious pancakes and excellent, cheerful service. A must! 5 plus.
