You might wager a guess at what they serve here, but their flapjacks are a little thinner and are topped with tons of sweet or savory options.
Do you like pancakes that are also pizzas? Do you enjoy being able to pick from a menu with 70 options on it? If you answered "yes" to both or either of these questions, you'll enjoy De Pannekoekkelder.
This windowless pancakery tops their p-cakes with everything from bacon to raisins to Thai red curry. Seriously. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner, it doesn't matter. They've got you covered.
This is definitely a place where your love of pancakes supersede your hate of stairs. Once you do get past the incredibly steep stairs, you'll find a room with a myriad of teapots hanging from the ceiling and smells of pancakes topped with chicken gravy, pears, eggnog, chocolate, ginger, apples, and anything else you can think of.
This hidden Jordaan foodie find puts out Osaka-style 'cakes (called okonomiyaki). More like crepes than the Dutch numbers, these dough-babies are loaded to the hilt with ingredients; the Osaka Deluxe comes w/ jumbo shrimps, scallop, pork strips, salami, cheese, shiitake mushrooms, and squid.
As you might have guessed, these guys make crepes (and they're pretty damn good). But they also cook up the thicker American version and Dutch versions and top them off with decadent options ranging from typical to quite unusual (goat's cheese, sundried tomatoes, pesto, and basil anyone?).
Located in the Reguliersdwarsstraat's oldest building (built in 1642), this pleasant little cafe is tastefully decked out and has a quaint terrace to enjoy a full pancake menu, as well as other lunch/brunch favorites.
