Pannenkoekenhuis Upstairs: Hands Down, The Best Breakfast Spot In Amsterdam

Food in Amsterdam

There were actually very few restaurants I had jotted down as must visits when I made my first trip to The Dam. One of them was the Pannenkoekenhuis Upstairs, a breakfast and lunch staple in Amsterdam. I originally heard about this spot from Anthony Bourdain in Season 1, Episode 7 of his Travel Channel series, The Layover. The chef had ordered him the bacon, apple and strawberry dutch pancakes. Tony enjoyed them all. I decided to go another route and order the pulled beef pancakes, which were absolutely phenomenal.

Aside from the phenomenal pancakes, the Upstairs Pancakes House offers a fun and warming environment. The establishment is small, like 4 tables small, which makes you feel right at home. There are over 100 teapots that hang from the ceiling and you share a room with the chef and his kitchen. I will say this place is not easy to enter. There is a steep set of stairs that separate you from heaven, but every step is worth it. Just hold on tight to the railings and don’t look back! It’s also worth noting there are long wait times for walk-ins! Darby and her family ended up having to wait for over a day! You can call ahead to make reservations. The phone number is 020 6265603. This is one spot you can’t miss.

Drawn to the feeling of adventure and thrill. Seeking for something greater in life through traveling the world and experiencing other cultures. Fortunate enough to have work that allows me to travel and work remotely. I'd love to teach people how to balance a successful work and travel life, while having fun and seeking a more permanent adventure. I was a shark in my past life, I love hiking and being outdoors, and living in the moment. Also a minimalist and wanna be vegan.
