Perfect spot just at the entrance of Vondelpark! Delicious pancakes! I got a savoury pancake with ham and cheese, it was good.

Stumbling out of nearby Vondelpark, I happened upon this place by accident a few years ago and have been going back every year since. The delicious pancakes (sweet and savory), the excellent service and the sheer pleasure of sitting in the sun (if lucky!) and watching Amsterdam life pass by around you makes it a happy place!

Just across from the entrance to Vondelpark. We stopped off to sit in the outside seating area in the sun, with views of the canal and a nice setting in the middle of the city. I went for savoury pancakes with Bacon which came with a welcomed bottle of Canadian maple syrup. Perfect way to set yourself up for another... More

This was such a lovely place we visited twice in our 3 day stay. Our waiter on the first day was so delightful, his service probably influenced our decision to return. I had a nutella pancake with whipped cream for 11 euros and I struggled to finish it so you definitely get your money worth. My friend had nutella and... More

I had my fair share of pancakes while I was visiting Amsterdam, but the Poffertjes were easily my favorite. go for the whole shebang butter, ice cream and whipped cream...you will return again and again. Caution: wear pants that have a stretchable waistline.

The savory pancakes are so good here! Easy to find. The place has a very nice style. It's great to sit outside if it's sunny!

Perfect place to warm up after stepping off a canal cruise. The poffertjes with strawberries and cream were delicious - one plate to share is plenty. It's a gorgeous looking place with friendly staff.

We found this place on our first walk to the city centre.It is by The Marriott hotel and centrally placed. It has great booth type seating around the edge of the room and tables in the centre. We went there three times and had a booth seat each time which I really loved. We had apple pancakes and pineapple pancakes... More

Been at this place 3 times with my wife. Cosy place and extremely tasty food. Pancake with cheese and bacon is very good. Pofertjes are the best you can find. Very good place.
