The pancakes were delicious. We tried the poffertjes and a banana crepe the first time. Then we went back again. Great service. Quick and efficient. For us speaking English was a big bonus. They were close to our hotel and easy to get to.

Yes, they do. Most of their pancakes are gluten-free. My daughter who is very sensitive had no symptoms. The waitress that served us was gluten-free by choice but told us that all the gluten-free food is cooked with great... More
