We came to Pffantastic Pannenkoek on a Saturday (11:00am) and barely had to wait for a table. Normally, this place is packed but we lucked out (Stampede season is the best season). This was my first trip even though I’ve passed by it many times.
Note: no reservations on weekends (from 8:00am to 3:00pm Saturday and Sunday).
Lots of options to choose from but it’s mainly savoury and sweet pannenkoek along with a few soups, salads, omelettes and open faced sandwiches. Service is bustling but very tender and sweet.

They also have a special pannenkoek of the month. Don’t miss out!
Hollandse erwtensoep ($6.95 bowl)
Comes with a warm fresh pretzel bun. Oks got a second ($0.80) cause she loves them so much. Pea soup had some chicken and sausage mixed in. Good.
Rosti, ui en kanas ($10.95)
Shredded potato, onion and cheese with added tomatoes ($1.00). Crispy and tasty like a pierogi flattened into a thin style Dutch pancake.
Spek en appel ($10.95)
Who knew bacon and apple could be so good? Delicious. Sweetness from the thinly sliced apples, savoury from the bacon. I’d hit it again.
Special pannenkoek of the month (fresh strawberries) ($14.95)
Ice cream, whipped cream, icing sugar and chocolate sauce. Perfect dessert to end our meal. Strawberries were fresh and the ice cream/whipped cream decadent. Perfect to share for three (one scoop of ice cream for each!).
Pleasantly surprised with Pffantastic Pannenkoek. Would totally come back again for brunch. Dutch goodness!
