“The recipe is simple, the result divine.” Bastiaan Schaafsma says this sums up best what The Pancake Bakery is all about. Schaafsma is the owner of the pancake restaurant on the Prinsengracht in Amsterdam. The recipe: quality, fresh products and excellent service. The result: great pancakes made with love, in a great nostalgic setting. The Pancake Bakery is housed in a 17th century Dutch East India Company (VOC) warehouse, called ‘Hope’. The building is one of three; the one on the left is called ‘Faith’, the one on the right is ‘Love’.
