Stopped in for a quick bite after visiting the Anne Frank House - this spot is right across the street . Quick and friendly service. The server was fantastic and took a few moments to explain some of the menu items. I shared a small plate of delicious poffertjes with my husband and enjoyed a cheese and apple dutch pancake. The pancake is large but thin so it was filling but not excessive. I would highly recommend and hope I to visit again!

We decided that after our visit to the Anne Frank house that we would have to try the pancake place next door. We were greeted by super friendly staff and seated immediately. Our server was super attentive and helped us with making our order. We started with the Poofertjes, which were amazingly delicious, and then ordered some Dutch pancakes. My wife had the Cheese Apple while I had the Cheese Bacon. Both were really great and filling. I would recommend this restaurant for anyone willing to try some Dutch pancakes.

Eating pancakes for dinner was one of the main things on our list of foods to try while in The Netherlands. We saw this pancake place while visiting the Anne Frank house earlier in the day and decided to make our way back over there for dinner that evening. It was a perfect choice.

We were seated quickly. The staff were friendly. The prices are reasonable. The restaurant is clean and inviting. But the pancakes. WOW!! They are amazing! These are the most incredible pancakes I have ever eaten! Three of us shared two savory pancakes and one sweet pancake.

The first was a Camembert, chicory, and ham with raspberry sauce which was heavenly! It was SO GOOD. The raspberry sauce added just the right touch. I would definitely order this again. The second was a goat cheese and spinach with garlic oil and pine nuts which was also very good. We finished off the meal with a cappuccino and an apple crumble pancake with vanilla ice cream and cinnamon which we rolled up and divided between us. This was decadent and we found it very difficult to resist the urge to try yet another sweet pancake.

These pancakes are not a traditional thick American style pancake. They are similar to the texture of a crepe. If we ever find ourselves in Amsterdam again, we will eat here several times!

This Pancake location is near Anne Frank House. There are others around town. Had to try local favorite pancakes although they had traditional pancakes. The Dutch pancakes are more like crepes but they fill the entire plate and come with a variety of toppings or ingredients. Also as an appetizer try the puffertjes which are like little puff pastry that also can be topped with different things. We got the basic powdered sugar and were not disappointed. Definitely worth the trip.
