The Dutch Pancake House is a local favorite, and it's easy to see why. There is an extensive menu with sweet and savory options of Dutch pancakes (huge, thin and topped with many choices, sort of like pizza) as well as seven or eight different accompaniments for the exquisite Dutch version of silver dollar pancakes, poffertjes. Other choices are available... More

We had never been to a Dutch pancake house so we found the menu very interesting with lots of options. It is obviously a very popular place and waiting in line for a table is not uncommon. Fortunately the wait is short and worthwhile. The food and service were great.

The Dutch Pancake House is a very busy place in the mornings. You will find long lines, but you don't have to wait very long. They are fast and efficient. The food is good and priced ok, as everything in Aruba is expensive! This restaurant is located in the Renaissance Market Place near the Marina. If you want a different... More

This restaurant is located in the downtown area. We visited downtown on Wednesday and decided to have breakfast. They was about a half hour wait, but it was well worth it. Probably one of the best breakfast I have ever had. We all enjoyed and it was not expensive.

We tried for several days to get into the pancake house and were successful on our third try. Two of us had the crepes and the other two had the traditional 12.00 breakfast. The food was OK but the service and the coffee was great.

Had breakfast here twice this week. Felt like I was back in holland. Had the uitsmijter. My family had poffertjes. Both I think we're excellent. I just keep coming back. Would recommend this to everyone. Best breakfast or lunch place on the island.

Breakfast was really good, I had the small pancakes with blueberry jam one time and with chocolate three times. Wife ate regular breakfast, egg with bacon and toast. The one dinner was the Dutch version of schnitzel which was... More
