My Old Dutch Pancake House, Holborn

My Old Dutch Pancake House, Holborn

I had been hearing about this place for a while and decided it was finally time I went here and see what all the fuss was about! Located conveniently a minute away, on the high street when you’re walking straight past Sainsbury’s, when you come out of Holborn Station and with it’s orange paint you can’t miss this place!- My Old Dutch is a gem. And this visit will be a first of many. Why you ask? Because they serve HUGE platters of sweet and savoury crepes, they do Monday Madness that means all their pancakes are for a flat £5, their milkshakes are creamy and thick and their pancakes are pretty darn good! One meal from there will fill you up for the whole day which is sad because I wanted to try more food!

I ordered the Chilli Con Carne Pancake with Tortilla chips, Guacamole and Sour Cream where as my friend had more of a sweet tooth and ordered Mini Pancakes with Nutella rather than maple syrup. She was squealing with joy- she was THAT happy! I’m pretty sure they didn’t add anything to her meal though but she was ecstatic! May be they were just really good!

My Old Dutch has a lovely, laid back and cosy ambience, a great place for a breakfast, brunch, lunch or whatever! Feast yours eyes with the pics. (and I’m still full!!)
