Lovely place for pancakes. Food cooked to order, fresh and piping hot. Good choice of fillings. We had both savoury (bacon and cheese) and sweet (with cream and strawberries). Would highly recommend and will definitely return when visiting Amsterdam.

Quaint mobile restaurant once used in funfairs across Holland- now a static restaurant that is a must if you visit Amsterdam! Enjoy your pancakes (we did :) ) along with friendly prompt service.

Another link in the northern European starch meat and cheese worship chain. These tasty savoury offerings were around €10-12. We were too full to try a sweet pancake or the poffertjes, another pancake variant. I'll be back after I've walked this one off.

Came across De Vier Pilaren after looking for good brunch/dessert places and we were not disappointed. Situated next to a canal, we sat outside to enjoy the beautiful view as we ate. We all had the Poffertjes - heavenly pillows of pancake perfection...bite-sized gems dusted...More
