About Upstairs Pancakes Amsterdam

Back in the days

You can find Upstairs Pancakes in a typical Amsterdam house dated back to 1539, in the centre of Amsterdam. Established in 1961, it is the smallest pancake restaurant in Europe with only 4 tables. By climbing a very steep staircase, you reach the restaurant on the second floor. You will be greeted by Arno or Ali, the owners.
