It is not far from the spots we visited, the Old CityHall and the Church. Few steps away you'll be there. Food were good and the place is cozy, clean and with friendly staff.

After checking tripadvisor I thought it was going to be better, but, at least what we had was regular precooked food, heated again in the oven or microwave. The service was good and the seating area nice and comfortable.

On a rainy summer Sunday we visited the lovely village of De Rijp and found ourselves hungry and looking at this place. We had already decided we wanted pancakes (proper Dutch ones, that is, not crepes) and had been prepared to drive away from De...Rijp for that. We entered and sat ourselves down and ordered pancakes of various varieties, including with bacon and with apple ("spekpannekoek", "appelpannekoek"). They even catered for one of the five of us who wanted a "appelspekpannekoek" which wasn't on the menu. Our pancakes arrived and we truly enjoyed them. Tasting as they used to, not a microwave in sight of course. The right balance between crispiness and soft, with good amounts of filling (whether bacon, apple or both). Service was quick (but not too quick, you cannot hurry a pancake) and very friendly. Good memories. Better than most other pancakes I have had in the past few years.More
