We had the apple pecan pannekoeken and potato pancakes so good. It's a lot of good for the price. We had a great waitress.

They weren't busy when we came in for breakfast but the service was slow. Had to send one plate back as it was served cold

The food is really good and I don't think anyone can beat their muffins - YUM. Waitstaff is friendly. my only issue is that they are slow getting the food out, therefore I cannot go as often as I would like because I may run out of time on my lunch hour

This is a restaurant you will want to visit. The Dutch apple pancakes are really tasty. The location is close to the Mayo Clinic. A great place to go in between appointments. You will be glad you did.

I love the Apple Cinnamon Pannekoeken. Their egg breakfasts are very good as well. The waitress still yells Pannekoeken! It fun. By the way their coffee is very good too.

Pannekoeken was highly recommended by the locals while we were in Rochester. We tried it--and loved it. I had the apple Pannekoeken and it was scrumptious. Hubby opted for a more traditional breakfast and he enjoyed his too. Our server was so friendly and welcoming! We stopped in on another day to buy their muffins--out-of-this-world good! We will be back... More

Great traditional breakfast place atmosphere. Staff friendly and service respectable. For those not from the area, don't go expecting a Pannekoeken to be anything like a pancake ...... it's not. That said, I will eat there tomorrow and have the more traditional eggs and bacon and report back.

We hadn't been to Pannekoeken in a number of years since they closed the one on South Broadway. This one may be gone soon as well, as it has been proposed to tear the entire building down as part of the DMC plan. So if you like this place or haven't tried it, better do so soon. We stopped here... More

This is a suitable place for breakfast. The panekoekens looked popular among the diners. I had eggs & a regular pancake, & it was good.
