I've been to Oudt Leyden more times than I care to count! The pancakes are always delicious. Make sure you go arrive hungry - the pancakes are very, very big. So is the range of choices - sweet and salty. And there is a menu of salads and mains for those who are not keen on a pancake as a... More

My friend brought me there. We enjoyed this huge pancake. The mushroom was on the pancake which we ordered, tasted fresh and very good. I loved the 'traditional-like' mood of this cafe.

I liked the place. Very dutch XVIth century deco. Expensive for panecake but that is the case everywhere. I stopped going there when I noticed something was wrong with my panecake. The maid told me it was unfrozen. I cannot believe it.

Great huge sweet and savory pancakes to share or to stuff yourself !! The service is good and friendly but a bit slow. The food came fast and was very tasty and perfectly made. I then ordered a powdered sugar one which was excellent. The food is very fairly priced and the location in the centre of Leyden very convenient... More

The selection of Dutch pancakes here is awesome; their soups are great too. We started with onion soup and then I had a delicious pancake with bacon, apples and cheese. My wife had a wonderful cheese and mushroom pancake. The pancakes are very thin and are about 15 inches across. We had some pancakes in Amsterdam that were nowhere near... More
