Description: Amsterdams oldest pancake house opened its doors in 1973 in a former 17th century VOC warehouse, situated on Prinsengracht 191. Soon it became the pleasant and cosy restaurant which it still is today, a place where both young and old feel at home right away. The building called ‘Hoop’ (Hope) is one of the three buildings that were all in possession of the powerful and prosperous Dutch East India Company (VOC), from left to right ‘Geloof’ (‘Faith’), ‘Hoop’ and ‘Liefde’ (‘Love’). In this Dutch Golden Age Calvinism was at its peak, and faith and business often went hand in hand. From this point of view the names of these warehouses are not unusual. The buildings are situated on the Prinsengracht (Prince’s canal), named after the Prince of Orange, and form part of the well known Amsterdam Canal District.

You have not lived until you have the delight of a Dutch Pancake this reserant has over 25 choices on the menu. I love to eat but could not more than finish one half of this pancake. Well cooked and with the topping and garnishes that I wanted

A definite must while you’re in Amsterdam.
We had to wait about 10 minutes but was totally worth it. Even with the packed house, the staff was super nice, not always the case in Europe. We got there early in the morning not realizing they don’t open until 9AM. We highly recommend Pancake Bakery!
