For those wanting to get the real Dutch pancake experience there is Boerderij Meerzicht at the Amsterdamse Bos. One of the typical places where the Dutch bring their children to have pancakes with the family. It’s definitely worth the travel, since they sell excellent pancakes you should have tried at least once in your life!

For those who fancy the French version of a pancake (=crêpe), check out Crêperie Le Berger at the beginning of the Haarlemmerstraat. It’s a tiny place, but you can enjoy the crêpe outside on a bench.
