Allergies, no problem

mei 11, 2018

Searching for a good place to eat gluten free, lactose free or vegan pancakes? PANCAKES Amsterdam is the right place to be. We serve gluten free and lactose free pancakes, and we even have a small selection of vegan options. Every option and combination is possible with the traditional Dutch pancake. Unfortunately, it is not possible to have these options with the American pancakes and poffertjes. We have established a special menu for the vegan options.

High quality gluten-free, lactose-free and even vegan Dutch pancakes

At PANCAKES Amsterdam, we do our best to always have the best quality possible in the products we get. We are always looking for products without any artificial colours, flavours and preservatives. If possible, we try to use free range products and fair-trade ingredients, made and produced by local farmers. We will never be satisfied with less. Our place is the place to be to eat traditional Dutch pancakes with a twist. We also serve delicious American pancakes and traditional Dutch poffertjes.

We are proud to serve gluten free, lactose free and vegan pancakes. The process to make these sorts of pancakes might take a little bit longer, but we can guarantee they have the exact same taste. Our chefs do the best they can to make sure all of our ingredients are allergy free, even though we cannot guarantee this with a full 100%. If you have any questions, one of our colleagues will always answer these with love. If you order a gluten free, lactose free or vegan pancake, you will recognise the pancake by its red chip. It is an easy way to see if any adjustments have been made to the pancakes and for you, as a customer, to know if the right pancake has been served.  


Gluten free
Lately, we have experienced a growing trend in the demand for gluten free pancakes. But what are gluten exactly? Gluten is a group of proteins, that provides structure to a product made of wheat, rye, barley or oats. It is often added to pancakes as a product enhancer, but for some people with celiac disease, this causes hypersensitivity reactions (gluten intolerants). Therefore, we have decided to stay on the lookout for new ways of preparing our pancakes, so we can provide pancakes to everyone. These special pancakes are made with the finest quality gluten free flour.

Lactose free
Lactose intolerant means that your body is not able to process lactose. This happens because of a certain sugar in milk and other dairy products. A lactose free diet means that you are only able to eat products without any lactose. Lactose intolerance is caused by an enzyme called lactase, you can find this enzyme in your small intestine. Our lactose free pancakes are made with soya milk and are gluten free. Do you want to know more about our lactose free traditional pancakes?

Vegan is a variation on the vegetarian diet. Vegan is a way of life, whereby you only eat products that are not made of any animals. A good example for products that are made of animals are meat, eggs, dairy products or gelatine. There are many different ways to take part in this diet, the popularity of the vegan diet is also growing. Do you want to know more about our traditional vegan pancakes?
