      I haven’t been a huge fan of pancakes for breakfast; I have always had an affinity for bacon, eggs and sausage. Besides, having had pancakes in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, I was less than excited to try a North Americanized version of the pancake. However, after visiting De Dutch Pannekoek House in Richmond, BC, I am now a fan of this version of the pannekoek and of the restaurant.

      The first thing I noticed when entering the restaurant and being seated was the cleanliness. The Dutch are well-known for being almost obsessively clean, and although we were either the 2nd or 3rd seating of the morning, there were no crumbs


      on the floor or stains on the walls. That made me very happy. I already knew that this chain, now franchises owned by many different people across Western Canada, was originally owned solely but Dutch immigrants to Canada, and I am please that the standards of cleanliness have remained.

      I was quite surprised at the extensive breakfast and lunch menu. Aside from the signature dish, the many variations of the pannekoek, there are many selections of different kinds of meat, including many wonderful types of sausage, and eggs, some ’scrambles,’ which are scrambled eggs with different ingredients, and ‘benedicts,’ which are variations of eggs Benedict such as smoked salmon,


      • prawns and ham. It all looked delicious, but I had come for a pannekoek, so I had to choose from many delicious sounding toppings, from fresh fruit to meat and eggs. I decided to try the smoked salmon and Edam cheese pannekoek and my husband, ever the health conscious eater, ordered the fresh fruit, with whipped cream of course.

        Our order came quickly, despite the busy time of day. Our server was efficient and friendly. The food was delicious. This type of pannekoek is a thin, large pancake with all the topping placed on top, and the typical Dutch way to eat it is to ad your toppings, such

        as syrup or jam or honey, roll it all up and cut off bite-sized pieces. Both of our meals were delicious, (I know, because I had to try my husband’s breakfast in order to review his meal too), and the portions were large-almost too large. Most of the pannekoeks are priced around $12, which is a very good price given the portion sizes. I really enjoyed my breakfast, and even though there was a consistently lineup to be seated, we did not feel hurried to finish quickly. The coffee was excellent as well, and I will most certainly be returning to De Dutch Pannekoek House in the future.
