My Old Dutch

When Daniella was craving pancakes, one day back in December, we found this place online. We decided that before she moved away we had to go there. Its a dutch inspired pancake house, so there are blue and white printed table clothes, traditional dutch style plates and a wall with tulips printed on it. One of the pancakes is even called "Amsterdamer". 
The menu is really long and you can choose from a selection of savory or sweet pancakes. The pancakes are not made in the American way, but rather they are thinner, but thicker than the French pancakes. I chose the Italian, because It had tomatoes, oregano, mozzarella, and other cheeses. Daniella chose the Greek, which had Haloumi cheese in the dough of the pancake as well as several other toppings. Kristin on the other hand chose one with berries and ice-cream which looked a little smaller because it was folded over.
The plates were huge, but the pancakes fit on them perfectly. It was a little bit of a struggle to finish the whole thing, but at least that way I wasn't hungry later on. Also another bonus about this place, on Mondays the pancakes only cost 5 pounds instead of their individual prices written on the menu.
