De Dutch specializes in breakfast, brunch and lunch, offering customers a unique blend of European ethnicity in their menu items.
I've been to this location a few times when I used to live by here. It's a strange setting. Eventhough the restaurant is on Hastings, the entrance is around the back, so you have to walk in this narrow corridor to get to it. The interesting part is that their patio in the back is open during the spring and summer months which makes for a nice airy brunch setting, but the view it offers is the netting of the driving range across the alley.
The service is great and the food is not disappointing.
I quite like this location because of the patio eventhough it offers a strange view.
This location has been around for as long as I can remember. Finally tried it out and was impressed with the food - haven't actually been to any of the De Dutch places previously and am glad I went. The breakfast will really fill you up and I was surprised I finished the whole thing with my OJ! However, for those looking to spend less than $25.00 (including taxes & tip) then this may not be the place for you (or the portion for that matter) but for those needing hangover food - it's a done deal!
The interior could do with some renovating as the age of the place is noticeable.
De Dutch Pennekoek House is a consistently good choice for a breakfast or lunch, though you often have to wait before getting a table. The prices are reasonable, the selection is good, and the food is tasty. The atmosphere is very casual. My Dutch relatives approve, which is a good sign.
This location is in the basement and is quite cramped. It can also be a bit hard to find. It really isn't the nicest place to eat, so those who value ambiance will want to stay clear and go to the Coquitlam location instead.
I have been twice recently, both on a Sunday.
A bit of a wait for a table. This place is TINY.
The food came pretty quickly considering how busy they were. The coffee was plentifull.
I will return.
It was my first time ever to a De Dutch restaurant. I just moved here from Ontario and we don't really have a whole lot if any of these places. I had scrambled eggs, bacon, hashbrowns and toast for breakfast and it was really good, not greasy at all. I found the prices to be a little expensive and the weird thing was that the breakfast came with a salad? That is sooooo weird! So I paid the extra 1.50 for a fruit salad. Otherwise, rather good
This little place is tucked away off Hastings St in North Burnaby.I have always had good food and company in this location. portions are great, service is courteous and staff are always attentive to the needs of their customers. Fresh coffee and pleasant attitudes prevail,always.
Prices are reasonable. Outdoor patio is always popular during the summer months.Children are welcome,but sometimes noisy.
yes, this is a favourite place and it is small and sort of special.
For a treat I accompany my wife, of Dutch heritage, to a Panekoek House. This one is the closest. Not the best location and a bit cramped but these places are all fine. The food is consistently fresh and tasty, you have lots of choices, and the service is friendly. In case you're up that way, the best one we've found is in Kelowna.
I love coming here because the food is very good. But every time I do come here, I am always angry at our server and the long wait for a table and for food. I myself am I server so I have quite a bit of sympathy when it comes to slow service but some of the servers here are a little ridiculous.
We went to De Dutch yesterday for breakfast. We were seated immediately and a few minutes later placed an order for the Hash and Amsterkok. It took close to 40 miniutes for our food to reach the table. The breakfast is decent but sometimes the long wait to eat is not worth the wait.
If you want to sit in a restaurant that feels like a university student's basement pad, than this is the place. Tried this place only once - was desperately craving waffles and figured a pancake house would have them. I was wrong. No matter, got the banana walnut pancake and figured for $13 it would be a damn good pancake but was turned out very average. Should have stayed home and made my own.
One piece of advice to the servers, ask everyone at the table for their drink order. Don't leave assuming no one wants a drink just because the first person you asked declines.
