Excellent place to have breakfast or an afternoon snack and the poffertjes dish is generous (hard to finish) and not that expensive (around 6€). The place is also very nice and cozy. It is worth coming here!

The four of has took three portions, one with the small pancakes. All the portions were good and quite large, however they are quite pricey and the service was not so great. The selection is, however, very large with options of non-sweet portions as well.

We came here for breakfast before the Heineken tour and we're pleasantly surprised! We hadn't had proffertjes before but they were incredible- hope you're hungry because the portions are huge!! We probably should have shared a portion but very yummy anyway! Only downside was that a large Diet Coke was €4.50 which is very expensive but similar to the rest... More

Very busy pancake house. Chalet style - all wood. Packed when we visited. Pancakes were pretty good but nothing extraordinary. Ordered a savoury one (with mushrooms and cheese)... could have done with a bit more topping. Service friendly but not the fastest.

After a long day of sightseeing, walking around and braving the windy weather (which I was surprised about as it was meant to be summer), my friend had heard of a pancake place which neither of us had been to before. It's location was convenient as it took us between 10-15minute walk from the Rijkmuseum. The restaurant is pretty cool... More

Traveling with our 6-year old twins in tow, this place sounded perfect. The girls love going on carousels everywhere we go and although there isn't so much famous Dutch cuisine, they are known for their pancakes. The carousel isn't a functioning carousel, it is more like a very small and unimpressive area of 4 carousel horses in a round area... More

Extensive menu of pancakes both sweet and savoury. Staff pleasant, food tasty, think the place could do with a bit of renovation as some of the decoration looks a bit tired.

A good selection of sauces and creams available to compliment the ever tasty pancake. Service was swift considering it seemed busy. Pancake and a rum based cream went down well after a few Heinekens from our previous excursion. The carousel is a must for the pancake, but they do offer other items such as burgers etc if the trusty pancake... More
