Pannenkoeken are large, thin pancakes traditionally found in the Netherlands and Belgium, and Pannenkoeken Café is a cute breakfast spot in Lincoln Square that specializes in making them. It’s a very small restaurant with limited seating, but even on weekends you won’t have much of a wait. They have egg dishes and French toast, but you should stick with the pannenkoeken - either sweet variations like chocolate banana, or savory options like bacon and cheese (the bacon is actually in the batter).
