Often go here to meet friends for a quick lunch. The menu is good, although I tend to go for the homemade soup. Spicy tomato is totally delicious. Service is good and staff pleasant. Toilet could do with a bit of TLC, although always been clean. Busy cafe with lots of familiar faces so like me they tend to return... More

Not only do they have a great range of pancakes, but they do lots of other food too, including all day breakfasts. The portions are very generous - I've never known so much maple syrup to be served! The staff were all young and really friendly.

I've been to holland a lot and they are the masters of pancakes. Well done the Dutchman who owns this place as we might have well been sitting in The Hague. Superb pancakes, great service an unreserved must eat place. If he opened where I lived I would be there every week.

In Dumfries this has the best pancakes I've tasted. Another highlight would have to be the milkshakes as someone with a sweet tooth I really enjoyed my experience.

Popped in this afternoon for a spot of lunch not had a pancake place since it was in Stirling. Good food huge portions. OK value for money. The service felt a bit rushed. I hadn't finished my soup when they were taking my partners plate away and asking if we were ready for our pancakes. I felt a tad rushed... More

The food here is excellent and the waitress who served us was tidily dressed, pleasant and efficient. I was concerned to see that one of the waitresses looked as if she had walked in off the street as she was wearing an unfastened hoodie, which trailed in the food she was delivering to table, she also scratched her hair and...

Went here for lunch a week ago. Staff were very friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The food is exceptionally good value for money. I had the macaroni cheese and my mum had a mushroom omelette. Very happy with the price.
