9 pancake places in Utrecht

Listen, pancakes are a staple on a Sunday morning. You can go wild and mix a bunch of flavors like bacon, maple syrup, cheese, strawberries and whipped cream (there are people that probably do that) or you can go plain with powder sugar. Either way, if you are craving pancakes but don’t want to make them at home or you want to hang out with friends for brunch, we have provided you with the top 9 pancake places in Utrecht.

Pancake houses in Utrecht

In the Netherlands it is quite popular to have a restaurant devoted solely to making pancakes called a pancake house. So it is only natural that we offer you those first, since they have the biggest selection of choices and probably the most experience making pancakes.

De Muntkelder

De Muntkelder is one of the very few pancake houses in the city centre of Utrecht. It is only 7 minutes away from Utrecht Centraal and is open every day from 12:00 pm to 9:00 pm, no exceptions.

This pancake house offers:

  • 28 Classics pancakes ranging from €6.30 to €10.30 – 1 or 2 ingredients like apple, or bacon/cheese.
  • 18 Hungry pancakes all worth €12.00 – most often 3 but sometimes also 4 ingredients such as ham/cheese/apple or bacon/cheese/onion/mushrooms.
  • 15 Special pancakes ranging from €9.00 to €14.50 – with different, more meal-like ingredient combinations, mostly savory such as smoked salmon, cream cheese, spring onions, capers and rocket salad or spiced ground beef with corn, guacamole, sour cream, tomato salsa and nachos.

But that is not all. If you cannot get enough pancakes and want more, De Muntkelder had unlimited pancakes!!! How awesome is that? You can have unlimited pancakes in this pancake house in Utrecht from Monday to Thursday for 2 hours with 1 ingredient. And just keep in mind that the kitchen closes at 9.00 pm. Also, if you are a bigger group of people or if it is busy, your pancakes might take longer to arrive. So, are you ready for this challenge?

Opening times: Every day from 12:00 to 21:00.

De Pannekoekenbakker

This pancake house on the outskirts of Utrecht opened in 1983 in a beautiful historic building, not knowing that later on they would have 15 branches. Some of their values are the best quality Dutch pancakes served with personal service. Sounds appealing, right? But if you are not convinced yet, keep reading because the best is yet to come.

De Pannekoekenbakker offers:

  • 96 savoury pancakes ranging from €9.00 to €15.80 – ham, bacon, salami
  • 127 sweet pancakes ranging from €6.50 to €16.50 – all kinds of fresh fruit, honey, maple syrup
  • 47 cheese pancakes ranging from €8.80 to €16.90 – brie, mozzarella, gorgonzola, etc
  • 36 specialty pancakes ranging from €9.30 to €16.90 – Italian pizza pancakes, seafood, Apple strudel pancakes, surf pancakes and more

So even though this pancake place will take you a bit of time to reach if you are situated in the centre of Utrecht, it is much worth it.

In 2017, 30ml won the Best Coffee Concept 2017 award. 30ml is an expert in roasting coffee so you can imagine that their coffee must taste very aromatic and nice.

  • Pancakes espresso for €7.95 – banana and chocolate-espresso sauce

One of the options on the breakfast menu is pancakes for €8.50 – gluten-free and vegan. And the pancakes come with chocolate and banana, and raspberry just like on the picture above. Delicious right?
