I had the veggie pancake. Good, but nothing special. A pancake with spinach, onion and paprika and some guacamole dip on the side. The vegan food are ordered from an own menu, and your food gets served with a token to show that it actually is vegan. Quite touristy, pricy and packed.

Pros: Had vegan options

Lovely pancakes

Delicious pancakes, you need to wait though before you could get a seat and to be served.
Quite pricey.

Too expensive, but expertly made

Not too many vegan options. The savoury pancake was dripping with fat, but tasty.

Would not return :/

A little overhyped and overpriced but worth it for the experience. Me and my friend both enjoyed our pancakes. However, also, not many vegan options (the special diets menu was mainly just gluten free stuff) so just a lil warning you *won’t* be spoilt for choice😒

Separate allergic menu

I tried the lemon and sugar, and added banana for extra. (14,50 euro)
It tasted good, and reminded me of the norwegian pancakes i usually eat.
A bit slow service, and expensive for what you get. But if you havent tried dutch pancakes before, this is definitely a place to try the vegan version.

Pros: Clearly labeled, Good flavors

Cons: Expensive, Not so many vegan options.

Vegane Dutch Pancakes

Guter Dutch Pancake, Guter Oatly Hafer Latte. Bedienung langsam, keine Organisation, neben uns X falsche Bestellungen also als Veganerin komme ich hierher weil sie halt die vegane Option anbieten aber nicht wegen des Restaurants

Too expensive for what you get

There is a separate menu for vegan, gluten free and lactose free versions, but there are not a lot of vegan options at all. I tried a Dutch pancake with jam and banana, it was good, but not outstanding and waaaaay too expensive for what it is. Some toppings are not vegan while they could easily be, like the chocolate sauce. A little disappointing.

Pros: The pancake was good

Cons: Not many vegan options, Really expensive, not worth the price imo

Look for the green coin

Was it worth our wait? I think so. This allowed us to try something different, Dutch pancakes.

We had about ten people in front of us in line. It went fairly quickly about a half hour. Plenty seating available inside.

From pervious posts we were told they have a vegan menu, staff kind of looked at us strangely (as most people do when you say vegan) but came with a menu showing different options

We ordered
veggie: zucchini • spinach • onion • paprika • pesto & create-your-own Dutch pancake with bananas
GREEN Coins are placed on Vegan Vegetarian dishes to signify a special dish.

Flavors were great. Adding pesto to the veggie one was perfect.

Hidden non-food find….. Journey downstairs above the toilet see notes from visitors around the world.

Only complaint. It is expensive

Pros: Something new , English friendly , green coin designates plant based

Always a queue…

…but worth going at least once. The vegan pancakes are very good. The savory pancakes were great and the availability of pesto as a sauce is inspired. Still, the add-on vegetable options for the savory pancakes could be expanded. And, adding options, including fruit or toppings, can really run up the cost. Drink options are a highlight, including fresh ginger/mint/lemon tea.

Pros: Good pancakes , Outdoor seating , Helpful staff

Cons: The wait for a table , Can be quite pricey

super nice

A few vegan options, I ate the delicious vegan veggie pancake. Ask for the vegan menue, there is an extra one. We tried to eat there twice, but left, because there were so many people waitig to be seated. Today we waited 15 minutes for a table.

Pros: vegan national dishes, something different, delicious

Cons: not so many options, only one salty, crowded, not easy to get a table

Good Dutch vegan but the service takes ages

The only vegan options are Dutch, American pancakes don’t come vegan but that’s ok
The portions are big and tasty though. But be prepared to wait …

Pros: Vegan options available

Cons: The staff is half asleep …

Delicious pancakes and kids friendly.

I tried the veggies pancakes, which were great, and then a super delicious apple one. Make sure you ask for the special vegan menu. The staff is well trained in veganism and can help you out. I wish they would have more options and update the vegan ingredients.

Great pancakes!

Really enjoyed my pancakes. I came on two occasions - the first time I had the savoury pancake which was delicious. The second time I had the sweet pancake which was also very nice. I preferred the savoury though. There could be more vegan options but this hit my craving for pancakes. Make sure you have a coin on your pancake as that’s how they show you it’s vegan.

Very good pancakes

The dutch pancakes can be veganized, but the american pancakes can't. Chocolate sauce also isn't vegan. The staff was very nice and helpful in finding a vegan option. We had a savoury pancake with pesto, mushrooms and spinach and a sweet one with maplesyrup, almonds and banana.

Not really vegan

Good quality, friendly staff, good coffee, close to central train station, peaceful 🥞 Not really vegan, they only got dutch (not american) pancakes veganized, yet no whipped vegan cream, no vegan cheese, no actual vegan items except banana, almonds, veggies etc. They also serve non-vegan milk & stroopwaffles every single time together w/ the coffee even if you really clearly order vegan 😅

Marked Vegan Options

Very homey and a great space to take the family. They have a separate gluten-free menu and obviously marked vegan toppings. There aren’t that many, other than veggies and such, but it’s really good to have an option when eating out with others

The pancakes were amazing. There was a seperate vegan/allergy menu and the pancakes came out with a token on them to show that they were vegan, which was great. The staff were very friendly and the location was great.

Very good pancakes

Great Dutch pancakes that can be made vegan. We queued for about 15 minutes to get in but there are a few other locations in central Amsterdam which might be less busy during brunch time. Great coffee with Oatly.

Dutch Flat Pancakes for Tourists!

This restaurant is a popular tourist hotspot giving tourists a souvenir keychain when they eat there. It always seems packed most likely due to its location across the street from the central train station with a big sign that reads "Pancakes" in English. They offer a vegan menu but then state on it that several dishes cannot be made vegan which leaves you with a fruit topping or a build-your-own savory dish. What we had was okay (oily) but preferred other pancake shops in Amsterdam.

Tasty pancakes!

Ordered the goats cheese and spinach pancake, gluten free and it did not disappoint! Plenty of options on the menu however felt it was slightly overpriced. We will return.
