PANCAKES Amsterdam Centraal

In November 2015, we celebrated the opening of a second PANCAKES Amsterdam location. After successfully running the first location for almost 10 years already, followed by a search of 5 years for the perfect second location, we finally found a spot we liked. PANCAKES Amsterdam Centraal was born!


As the name already indicates, PANCAKES Amsterdam Centraal is located across from Amsterdam Central Station. With a bigger terrace than the first location in the Nine Streets. This location is just a 5 minute walk from Dam Square and is in front of Damrak. It’s one of the most famous photo spots in Amsterdam, so look closely and you will find something blue… Something tasty… Better known as PANCAKES Amsterdam!

This area of Amsterdam is called ‘de Wallen’, better known as the Red Light District. It’s the largest and best known Red Light District in Europe, which consists of a network of alleys. There are over three hundred one-room cabins, rented by sex workers.

PANCAKES Amsterdam Centraal is situated in the heart of the old city centre, Prins Hendrikkade 48. The famous Zeedijk is just around the corner. For tourists, this is a great starting point to discover Amsterdam. Take a left to visit the famous Red light District or take a right to go to Dam Square, with the Bijenkorf, the Ripley museum and Madame Tussauds. Don’t forget the cultural highlights; the Royal Palace and the ‘Nieuwe Kerk’.


This location has over 50 seats inside and around 30 seats outside during the summer season. It’s a really old building with multiple levels. On the ground floor we run our restaurant, at the lower floor you will find our kitchen and bathroom. Something special about this location, is that our headquarters are also located at PANCAKES Amsterdam Centraal.

Just a few more things: we also love tiny pancake lovers, so we have high chairs and colourful plastic cutlery! Unfortunately, this location is not really wheelchair friendly, since the toilets are located on the lower ground floor. Would you like to double check our facilities, then please give us a call or send us an email.
