Let us introduce you to Ingrid (left) and Nicolette (right), two spirits and adventurous ladies with one mission:

“Make it possible for ervyone, to enjoy the beste Pancakes all over the world!”,

Because everybody loves Pancakes and every country has there own variety of a Pancake. Dutch PAncakes are totally different than crepes or Americain Pancakes, it is a national dish we should be proud of!

So eat in one of our restaurants or take our PANCAKES flour & recipe back home and through a Pancake party for your loved ones. 

Instead of following the old-fashioned ways of serving traditional pancakes, these women took a new and fresh approach and put our Dutch pancakes experience on a pedestal.

We work with Amsterdam artists who design our inetrior & sprayprint our logo / style, call it Modern Dutch design.

We also use as much as possible Dutch ingredients. and we believe in back to basic. Use the best ingredients and prepare with love.

At PANCAKES Amsterdam, all Dutch pancakes are made with special PANCAKES flour mix, eggs, milk and our ‘secret ingredient’. Moreover, gluten-free Dutch pancakes, lactose-free  Dutch pancakes are available at all our locations and we are very proud we managed to have VEGAN Dutch Pancakes as well now! Preparation may take a little longer, resulting in extra quality time spent with your friends and family.


PANCAKES Amsterdam was founded in 2007. 

We’ve combined and emphasized the values ‘fresh’, a ‘modern Dutch interior’ and the ‘best local products’.

Situated in the heart of Amsterdam, PANCAKES Amsterdam is ideal for enjoying pancakes with a little twist: a unique, fun and unconventional pancake experience.

PANCAKES Amsterdam serves pancakes in its’ broadest sense, tradional or orginal Dutch combinations and Americain Pancakes are always at our menu. Every month we have a monthly special, a Pancakes from another country (every country has a Pancake!) .

This location, established in 2007, is our first PANCAKES Amsterdam. Take a break from shopping and visit the Berenstraat 38 located in the famous Nine Streets.

PANCAKES special flour mix

After one year of search, we found our ideal PANCAKES flour.

This is specially made for us by Windmill "De Windotter" at Ijsselstein. This windmill was already a flour mill from 1732, in 1984 the municipality bought the mill. They renovated it completely for 1.120.000 gulden and in 1988 the mill was completed and Maarten Dolman started as miller.

The production was 1988 83.907 kilo flour nowadays they produce more than 250.000 kilo per year and Maarten Dolman is still in charge!

Our special flourmix is only for sale in our restaurants.


PANCAKES Amsterdam Centraal was founded in 2015.

After a search of more than 5 years, we finally found a spot we liked.

Across Central Station, with a terrace bigger than the nine streets location and in the heart of the old city centre, red light district. This location was a bit of a disaster when we came in, long time this building had no love and maintenance so we had to do some renovation work. 

The pancakes are as deliciously familiar as ever, made in a traditional style with a special mix of whole-wheat, buckwheat and white wheat flour from the windmill. There’s a great selection of savoury, sweet and unusual combinations to choose from, as well as American pancakes.

The restaurant’s modern interior has been designed by Dutch designer Chris Slutter and features a touch of old-fashioned Amsterdam charm in the form of delft blue accents. These Delft Blue accents are made by street artist Hugo Kaagman, you can also find his work at Schiphol airport and musea.

Pancakes are served from 8:00 until 20:00.

Are you looking for a bite to eat before you explore the city? This location is right on the edge of the Red Light District and only a five-minute walk from Dam Square.

Looking for pancakes on the other side of town?

Head to PANCAKES Amsterdam at Berenstraat 38, in the pretty nine streets area of Amsterdam.

Or PANCAKES Amsterdam Westermarkt, Prinsengracht 277 next to Anne Frank house.


PANCAKES Amsterdam Westermarkt was founded in 2016.

Situated between the Anne Frank House and Westertoren; this brand new location is the perfect place to stop and relax for a little while and enjoy our warm and welcome atmosphere.

This beautiful building was built in 1900 and has been a stonemasonry of W.A.Brenning company, gym for primary schools, first cocktail bar in Amsterdam called Rum Runners famous for their cocktails and parrots (therefore you can find parrots in PANCAKES Amsterdam as well, search for them!) , Werck restaurant and now PANCAKES Amsterdam.
