Even the place is small but it's very cosy place. The pancake is so good and it is really worth it with the price. Definitely will visit this place again.

Found this place through Trip Advisor. A small shop but tasty pancakes. Lots of variety and friendly staff. Highly recommend the wheat pancake with bacon and maple syrup!

The happy pig is in the city center so you can stop here often to grab a pancake! They have Vegan pancakes and they are just as good!

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
