Craving pancakes for breakfast or lunch? Head to this popular cafe (with two locations) to satisfy your desires.
If you’re not from the Netherlands you may not know that pancakes, or pannenkoeken, are a common Dutch food but are not usually eaten for breakfast. However, at Pancakes! you can get these doughy delights all day long.
This cute cafe has the American style fluffy pancakes as well as the thinner Dutch version, in addition to French clafoutis and Turkish mücver. But their creative toppings and add-ins take it all to a new level. Try the Dutch pancake with smoked salmon and guacamole or top yours with nuts, banana and chocolate sauce.
The Pancakes cafe in the Negen Straatjes neighborhood was so popular they opened a second location in the city center just across from Central Station. Pop in any time of day to satisfy your pancake cravings.
