Fodor's Expert Review Pancake Bakery

$ Western Canal Ring Dutch Fodor's Choice

It's hard to go wrong when going out for Dutch pancakes in Amsterdam, but the ones at the Pancake Bakery are the best in town. The 17th-century warehouse has a canalside patio near the Anne Frank House and the mammoth menu has more than 75 choices of sweet and savory toppings. You can also order omelets, or a convincing take on the folk dish of erwtensoep (a superthick, smoked sausage–imbued pea soup; October–April only). Be prepared to wait: it's popular, and reservations are only taken for groups of six or more.
