We found the menu online and couldn't wait to try this restaurant with a Dutch twist. Husband ordered the Rotterdam Pannekette made with chicken and I opted for the Greek chicken special, which came with roasted potatoes and cooked carrots. With the exception of the carrots-- which were waterlogged and not very warm-- everything was tasty. The chicken was overcooked,... More

Food was good, staff was friendly even for a very busy Sunday morning rush. HUGE portions. Small building with limited seating so be prepared to wait for a table if you're going during the rush times.

Great breakfast joint, with dutch-style food. I ordered the bacon pannekoeken, which was carried out by a waitress chanting the Pannekoeken Oath, was hot and delicious. My wife had a traditional breakfast which was unremarkable, but her muffin was excellent. Low-brow environment. Prices were good.

The staff is very help to... More

Good solid food, average priced. We tried the Dutch offerings on the menu: meat and veggie Pannekoeken; the pot pie; and apple raisin Pannekoeken. They definitely are large enough to share. We took a lot home! I really liked the variety of veggies they use as well as the sausage. The muffins looked wonderful but we didn't buy any on... More

This is a fun pancake house. They sing when they bring you your order. Super casual and they also have great muffins to go. I had the Dutch Apple pancakes and they were great. Very filling!

They weren't busy when we came in for breakfast but the service was slow. Had to send one plate back as it was served cold

The food is really good and I don't think anyone can beat their muffins - YUM. Waitstaff is friendly. my only issue is that they are slow getting the food out, therefore I cannot go as often as I would like because I may run out of time on my lunch hour

This is a restaurant you will want to visit. The Dutch apple pancakes are really tasty. The location is close to the Mayo Clinic. A great place to go in between appointments. You will be glad you did.
