Fodor's Review

It's hard to go wrong when going out for Dutch pancakes in Amsterdam. But the quaint Pancake Bakery rises above the pack of similar eateries with its medieval vibe, canalside patio near the Anne Frank House, and a mammoth menu with more than 75 choices of sweet and savory toppings. There are also omelettes, and a convincing take on the folk dish of erwtensoep (a superthick, smoked sausage-imbued pea soup—only available from Oct. to April). But don't rise too early

for your pancakes—the bakery doesn't open till noon—and be prepared to wait: reservations are only taken for groups of six or more.

The original pancake bakery!

I lived in Amsterdam for a semester and whenever we had friends visiting, or wanted to meet for a fun meal, or just wanted to eat amazing pancakes we could visit this pancake bakery. their pancakes are fresh and delicious, not to mention they offer soooo many kinds of pancakes both sweet and savory. I like the sweet myself, but sometimes I did opt for a vegetable pancake yum! They also offer wheat batter, which makes you feel a bit more healthy

about it. The atmosphere is v. classic old amsterdam, a little cramped but rustic and comforting once you're seated. No waiting room so go when it's not busy...or be ready to wait outside. Plan your morning by going to the Anne Frank House early to bea the lines and then get to the Bakery by 11am.
