This hot spot is on the money for a quick breakfast with Dutch pancakes with different fixings they are light and delicious more like a crepe. If you are in the area definitely check this place out.

This restaurant was such a treat for us. Everything that you read about this restaurant is absolutely true. We had never heard of Dutch pancakes before but once I read up on things to see in do in Aruba this was a must. I believe we ate there three days out of the five days that we were on the... More

Have been visiting this place the last few mornings since we are at the hotel close by. Their menu has a great variety but breakfast has been such a pleasure. Nice portions, warm food, and the service was great. I wish they would have a place like where I live.

We ate here three out of five days for brunch. We loved it, especially since it was walking distance from the Renaissance.

Had our usual breakfast here. Was a bit disappointed though. Wanted to try their Dutch Pancake with lox & capers, but it was only for lunch and/or dinner. Kinda surprised since that's breakfast food. My poffertjes were great but my wife's Dutch Pancake was somewhat burned on the bottom. Service was as good as in the past.

I can't begin to tell you how much my mouth was watering for a Dutch pancake when I arrived in Aruba. It turned out I only had one popular option available and I wasn't disappointed. The Dutch Pancake House provided excellent service and a variety of flavored Dutch pancakes. My favorites were the Apple Cinnamon Pancake and the Apple Cinnamon... More

This became a favorite restaurant during a recent trip to Aruba. The menu is filled with choices for sweet or savory dutch pancakes. The service was quick and friendly. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

Best meal we've had on Aruba, going back tomorrow for breakfast. Warning: the portions are HUGE, 1 plate easily feeds 2 hungry adults.

Very welcoming staff with efficient and professional service. "Pancakes" more like crepes with varied and tasty toppings. A good choice for breakfast.

Thank Twentyfifteen
