Not those tasteless dry things, but large stacks of fluffy American pancakes. Where should you go for the tastiest pancakes in Amsterdam? We have listed them.
This hotspot in the Pijp doesn’t lie. Here you get large stacks of fluffy American pancakes. The presentation is great and the flavor combinations surprising and delicious.

Beter & Leuk
One of my favorite brunch and lunch restaurants in the city, perhaps because it’s in my neighbourhod. But also because you know that they also have really healthy dishes on the menu here so it feels less like a guilty pleasure if you eat pancakes. If you fancy sweet, you can go for the sweet buckwheat pancakes with maple syrup and banana. My personal favorite is the savory spinach pancake that is filled with salad, vegetables and a tasty spread like a wrap.
Location: Eerste Oosterparkstraat 73, Amsterdam
