One of the delicacies of the Dutch cuisine is 'poffertjes': two-inch round 'pancakelets' made from a special batter sprinkeled with powdered sugar and topped with a scoop of butter. They are prepared on premise and it is worth taking a look how they do it....More

This place was recommended to us as having excellent poffertjes, and they we're! De Vier Pilaren is a short walk along the canal behind Rijksmuseum. You can hop on a canal cruise before or after, practically right next door!

If you want real old fashion poffertjes, you’ll not have much choice in Amsterdam; this is the place and best of all, it’s fantastic. The poffertjes are made the traditional way and taste fantastic. Service is great and very friendly.

Would highly recommend this place to everyone. The poffertjes with strawberry is totally amazing and difficult to forget. Price was decent. Service was good. Sometimes the line to get a table might be long, but definitely worth the wait.

Yes, they do. Most of their pancakes are gluten-free. My daughter who is very sensitive had no symptoms. The waitress that served us was gluten-free by choice but told us that all the gluten-free food is cooked with great... More
