We went to the Dutch Wooden Shoe Cafe for the first time this morning, and will definitely be going back. It's got a very cool, homemade style of decor inside, and that just adds to the charm - photos all over the walls of past diners, a huge collection of beer glasses and mugs from around the world, and lots of posters of Holland and the like. It's certainly not boring! The server was a dream, too - genuinely friendly and happy to be there, and did an amazing job, especially considering the place was half-full and he was on his own. Coffee came fast and often, and he checked up on us three times over the course of the meal (not counting the initial food delivery and the bill drop-off). The food itself was excellent - great quality, lots of flavour. I had one of the eggs 'n ' hash combos and my other half had the apple and cheese pannekoek - we'll definitely be going back to sample other items on the expansive menu. Overall, we're extremely pleased with our experience, and will definitely return.

This family-run joint on Cambie feels like dining at your grandmother’s house – especially if she happens to hail from the Netherlands. The faux European windows and yellow clogs adorning the walls give this homey neighbourhood spot a somewhat hokey feel, but the country-style cooking is the real thing. Much of the menu is dedicated to Dutch delicacies, including Pannekoeken (Dutch style pancakes) topped with sweet and savoury ingredients. You’ll also find classic diner breakfast options and a few fusion specialties such as Nasi Goreng, a fried rice dish originating from Indonesia, a former Dutch colony.
