Upstairs Pancakes

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by cls223 on February 25, 2001

I've been told that this is the smallest restaurant in Europe, and I believe it! After climbing a flight of steep stairs - good practice for anyone planning an Everest expedition - you reach Upstairs. A collection of teapots of all types hung from the ceiling provides a decorative touch. The specialty is traditional Dutch pancakes, a real treat for your tastebuds! The pancakes are similar to a crepe in thinness and taste, but larger than a dinner plate. I had a wonderful combination of apple, sugar, and cinnamon, and my friend had one with bacon and cheese. Both were piping hot and delicious! There are about two dozen varities to choose from. A pancake and beverage is about 15 NLG (about $7/person). Upstairs opens at noon.
