Food and ambience

The Happy Pig Pancake Shop is a unique little shop, located in the heart of historic Amsterdam. We sell authentic Dutch pancakes and Belgian waffles with delicious fillings and toppings, made from high quality certified organic ingredients. Your pancakes are freshly made on the spot, you can watch the cook make them! We also serve great organic coffee, tea, hot chocolate, chai latte, fresh orange juice and premium cold drinks. We have an eating bar, and if the weather is good, you can sit on one of our benches outside. Or you can take your pancake and eat it while shopping. We sell Fritz-Kola en other cool drinks, and great gifts like stroopwafels en Tony Chocolonely bars.

Waited 30 min for one pancake, when we finally got it it was the wrong order, when we told the person working there, he directly yelled at us saying it was our fault if they did not take the order well. I have honestly never...been treated this way in any restaurant, If I could write 0 stars would!! Never againMore

Hey miss Yesterday was a busy day, so its normal you have to wait sometimes, everything is custom made. Just for you. When you order 1 pancake at the shop, and we repeat your order before paying. Dont complain when you get 1 pancake instead...More

Very good and unfriendly chef/owner. I was looking for an extra fork and he rudely offered the ones in a dirty basket. There were only a few forks and they were covered in chocolate. I asked if they were the clean ones because I was...genuinely confused but he responded with an attitude that they’re indeed clean. Vegan pancakes are ok so I don’t recommend coming here.More

Not recommending this restaurant. The owner was very mean, the food was at most Ok. Prices are not that low as it was stated on restaurant’s page.

We went to get some good Dutch waffles, but they were burned, thin and tasted like nothing. The waiter were unfriendly and not complying with any corona respect - no mask, used gloves but touched everything else with those as well (dried off his drink...with the gloves etc). He also spoke to a co-worker about how they shouldn’t drink that much before work etc., as if we didn’t understand Dutch. Considering all this; it is very overpriced and not worth a visit.More

I had the gouda and fig jam pancake, heavenly! Light dough and fresh ingredients and the atmosphere topped everything. It was take-out only due to covid. Will go there again, when possible

Delicious! Our children had the pancakes and waffles which barely touched the sides! My husband and I had some fantastic milkshakes; my fresh strawberry one was perfect. 🥛

This place is a hidden GEM! If you blinked you might walk past it, but DONT! The pancakes are made fresh and hot, loads of sauce and toppings.. and the ice cream is just amazing, especially with the salted caramel sauce on top.. just wow....We went back twice! Also don’t think they’re ‘small’ - they are sooo filling!More

What a great way to start each morning in Amsterdam! And the potential combinations is, well I'm not certain, but I'm fairly certain that its a really big number. But you can eat here every morning and have a different type of"rolled"pancake each day. I...really liked the Dutch Delight (gouda & fig jam) while The Wife had strawberries & hazelnut. The Happy Pig is located in a small alleyway and has a storefront about 3 meters wide. There will be very limited seating and usually seems busy, so be forewarned. Cheerful staff, too. If you take the food to go, you're about 1 block from a park (Begijnhof), and a canal, and maybe an available bench.More

Best nearby
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

Hi Danielle, we serve vegan pancakes, for the filling you can pick any of the fruits and for the topping you can choose maple syrup, one of the jams or sugar & lemon. Hope to welcome you in The Happy Pig Pancake Shop!
