Listen, friends, the puffertjes were sooooo good. I will probably dream about them for the rest of my life. I would go back to Amsterdam just for the puffertjes if I could. The small, buttery pancakes are topped with more butter and a lot of powdered sugar. I just got the simple ones, but it was enough to keep me... More

I was on a bit of a pancake bender while in Amsterdam. I had better elsewhere, but these weren't bad. This was the only place I had poffertjes, which were really good! Got the banana/whipped cream variety, which was almost overkill as it was a lot of food. Seemed a bit on the high end in price. Also, we asked... More

Quaint little restaurant with the most delicious poffertjies! Reasonably priced too! Right by Heineken Experience, so a good place to grab a bite to eat before / after.

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.

Thank mcr14
