Tiny Lincoln Square spot specializing in pannenkoeken, Dutch pancakes.

Our Review

Linda Ellis, owner of this tiny Lincoln Square cafe, fell in love with Holland on her first trip in 2001—the bikes, the easy pace, the friendly people. And she got hooked on pannenkoeken, the large, thin, crispy-edged Dutch pancakes—so much so that she apprenticed herself to a gruff elderly master of the art. The initial result was a tightly compressed menu: a few egg dishes, regular buttermilk pancakes, and three pannenkoeken (apple, chocolate-banana, and bacon and Havarti). "I wanted to start small," Ellis says. "I wanted to be able to control what we do qualitywise." These days, with the help of her daughters, she's expanded her pannenkoeken repertoire to about a dozen, both sweet and savory. The rest of the menu has grown as well: there are now Belgian waffles and multiple varieties of flavored French toast (chocolate-Nutella, cranberry-walnut, blueberry-mascarpone) along with omelets and breakfast sandwiches.
