De Dutch specializes in breakfast, brunch and lunch, offering customers a unique blend of European ethnicity in their menu items.
Excellent food. Nice variety on the menu. Fast and friendly service. I am never disappointed coming here. This is the place where you get a breakfast where you don't leave hungry but not bursting at the seams from heavy food. Delicious and light.
We decided on brunch this morning with a gift certificate for DeDutch.
It was Sunday morning at 11 am. We had to wait about 10 mins.
I agree with others, this place is very small. Although I find that many other of the DeDutch restaurants are also very small. I am not sure why.
But once I was seated I did not really care about the size of the place.
The coffee arrived right away, and was regularly filled, and we even got more cream when we were running low and we did not even ask.
I had the Boer’s (Farmer’s) which includes
Hash Browns, Ham, DeBakon*, Bratwurst,
Eggs and Hollandaise all places on a large dutch thin pancake, or what we might call a crepe.
The hashbrowns were my least favourite, not much flavour and not crisp enough.
My sunnyside eggs were perfect!, the bacon and ham were great and the Bratwust was amazing. It
was full of flavour, so juicy with a perfect grill char. I loved it.
The dutch pancake was great, with a bit of a chew to it, I would like to try it plain with lemon and sugar next time.
Rainbowcrab had the french toast with egg and bacon. She really enjoyed it all.
We got a great amount of food and left full and satisfied.
We will go back.
The dining room was squishy the day I came here, but the staff maneuvered around everyone with grace and friendliness. No one batted an eyelash when I ordered a cup of hot water (I'm not a caffeine fan), and even better, the breakfast menu includes green salad as a side dish on many entrees (not a hash browns fan either). Can't comment on the crepes, but for eggs and salad this is the place.
This place is small, i suppose one could say 'cozy' but that would be stretching things past the breaking point. My family went there on Saturday and found the place busy as to be expected, the lame part wasn't waiting for good food and good service, instead we waited 40 minutes for a crap table right beside the entrance way, a place where no table belongs as you get the constant rush of cold air each time the door opens-which is often. The service was then slow to non existent, i realize they are busy but i would categorize it as grossly understaffed. My pancake was bunt on the bottom (another sign of a rushed establishment being run on the cheap) my coffee was only refilled once and the service was rude and short. Non apologetic for the lousy service and i won't be coming back to this location. De Dutch is an otherwise great place to eat but this place is awful and needs to be reviewed on how they run things, either pony up and hire more people or limit your already limited seating.
Didn't realise there was a little De Dutch just across the street. What impressed me is that they had many healthier options than their giant american big brand competition across the street. You can taste that the food was made with attention--not just greased thrown on the grill and on the plate.
The staff was incredibly friendly, and even overheard my conversation regarding which bus to take--they happily helped me work out what bus to get where!
