Every Calgarian has probably been to a Stampede pancake breakfast, but have you ever tried a Dutch pancake? Pfanntastic Pannenkoek Haus offers over 40 varieties of sweet and savoury pancakes on their menu, including the option to build your own. Unlike traditional pancakes, pannenkoeken are thin and wide (about 12” in diameter), and the filling is cooked right into a batter, like an omelette. Pfanntastic Pannenkoek Haus is open from morning to night, so you can enjoy your pancakes at breakfast, lunch or dinner.
The Dutch pancakes served at Pfanntastic Pannenkoek Haus are not what you would traditionally think of as a crepe. Instead of being filled with sweet or savoury toppings, pannenkoek are cooked right in or rest on top of the unfolded pancake.
In a small strip mall off Crowchild Trail Southwest, Pfanntastic Pannenkoek Haus serves traditional Dutch pancakes. It’s a perennial favourite brunch destination. Try the bacon, cheese, potato and onion pannenkoek with stroop (syrup) and sour cream on the side.
