Every trip we take to Hameln we must go to Pfannekuchen! The old building with mice in the rafters (NOT REAL ones!), the creaky, uneven floors, the decorations are wonderful. The pancakes (and potato pancakes) are wonderful. Whether you want sweet or savoury you will be satisfied. be prepared for a wait during typical lunch hours. Service can be a... More

There are so many options of Pancakes on the menu it's hard to chose. There are sweet and savory types of pancakes. The atmosphere is very nice and the service is super friendly. I will come back to the Pfannekuchenhaus!

So I lived in Hameln for 3 years and never knew this place existed. I visited for the first time today with family and friends and I was truly surprised. Great selection of pancakes, never knew you could have pancakes with so many different options. The environment is really relaxing and romantic. This is the type of place I can... More

This establishment is quite unique in offering over 40 different types of pancake - both sweet and savoury. It is in one of the oldest buildings in the old part of Hamelin and provides a very intimate dining experience. It is very popular with the locals and it is advisable to pre-book to be sure of a seat. A must... More

If you want a savoury and / or sweet pancake, then this restaurant is for you. The variety of toppings was great - and you could also add or take away any ingredient in any of the pancakes or salads. Also a good range of beers and other drinks. Service was a little slow, but they were very busy -... More

We were asked to visit this restaurant by local colleagues.. Though practically in the centre of the town, it is easy to miss ,as it is in a small lane (We missed it once, only to make it the next day.) I have never seen s many kind of pancakes. A small restaurant, but a must visit for anyone visiting... More

This restaurant is somewhat hidden down a side street, but is a fun spot to eat. The menu is a variety of pancakes, many of which are very unusual. However, our party all enjoyed our food and the atmosphere as well. It is an old building that has been renovated, but nothing is quite straight, and walk carefully if you... More

If you want something different for lunch or dinner, this may be an option. Pfannekuchen is a German pancake (thin style) house that has both sweet and savory pancake dishes. They are very reasonably priced and serve adult beverages too. I enjoyed a cheese, ham and spinach stuffed bacon (in the batter) pancake. It was good and filling with a... More

We had lunch here again this week and again, everything was just great! The food is delicious and served quite quickly. The service is great and I love the quirkiness of the building! One of my favourites, when I'm in town!
