Amsterdam is famous for its pancakes, with the traditional Dutch style more like a French crêpe than the thicker American version. Typically eaten for lunch or dinner, Dutch pannenkoeken pancakes are served with savoury options including bacon, ham and cheese, and are also delicious as a dessert with sweet fillings such as fruit, syrup and chocolate. Pancakes have enjoyed a surge in popularity recently, with many chic cafés and restaurants offering this versatile dish throughout the day with an impressive choice of toppings. Whether you are looking for traditional Dutch offerings, indulgent sweet options or a healthy alternative, here are the best pancakes to try in Amsterdam.
