Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

Hi Clint, Our buckweat pancakes are gluten free as are most of our fillings and toppings. However, they could contain traces of gluten. We don't have dairy-free options yet. I hope to welcome you in The Happy Pig Pancake... More
