Some people think pancakes are only for a Sunday breakfast. I think pancakes are something you can eat all day. That’s what they think at MOOK Pancakes too. ? In Amsterdam are lots of places to eat, but Eline and I were in the neighborhood of this hotspot, so that’s where we went. Because pancakes are always a good idea! I had read a lot (and seen so many photos of it on Instagram) about it and now we got to try it ourselves.
MOOK Pancakes | De Clercqstraat 3, Amsterdam
In 2016 MOOK Pancakes opened their first restaurant. MOOK is actually short for Mokum, which stands for Amsterdam. I read this on their website and I think that’s so funny and unique. Like the name already reveals, you can get pancakes here. A lot of pancakes. On their website it says that all of the fruits and vegetables they use are fresh. Besides that, they use 100% organic wholegrain spelt flour, which not a lot of restaurants do.
From the outside it might look like a small place, but when you enter, you can walk all the way to the back. This is where they have a big open space with lots of room to sit and enjoy a pancake or two. ?
The interior of MOOK Pancakes is very simple, which I like. In the front of the restaurant they have a couple of booths to sit, then some higher tables and in the back are a lot more places to sit. Even though it was pretty busy when we got there, we did have a place to sit. I liked the fact that we could have a look into the kitchen and see how all of the pancakes were made. Maybe this made us a little more hungry, but that was okay haha.
After looking at the menu for some time, Eline got a fresh pressed juice and The Infamous pancakes. These have banana, homemade chocolate sauce, melted peanut butter, strawberries, blueberries and cinnamon on them. I went for some still water and The Blue Magic Deluxe. With these buttermilk pancakes I got banana, strawberry, blueberries, maple syrup and grated coconut. Since I hate banana (with a passion), I got some extra strawberries on my pancakes. ? As you can tell from the photos below, our pancakes looked really good (and they were delicious). You get a stack of pancakes and they fill you up pretty good. Even though the pancakes tasted amazing, I wasn’t able to finish them unfortunately.
When I see the photos above from our pancakes, I get hungry again. They were so good. Oh, and exciting news! MOOK Pancakes opened up a new location. Besides the location we visited, you can also visit them at Jodenbreestraat 144 in Amsterdam. If you are in Amsterdam, looking for a place to eat or just feel like having pancakes, I would definitely recommend MOOK Pancakes. You’ll definitely be seeing me here more often, if I am in Amsterdam. Do you love pancakes as well? Have you ever been to MOOK Pancakes?
One of my friends is travelling and she just went to Mook the other day! I remember stalking the Instagram location, haha. It’s super chic for sure, and the pancakes look so good! ❤

Ah thank you! Haha, they have some pretty awesome hotspots in Amsterdam 🙂 X
Ziet er heerlijk uit en wat een gave tent! Jammer dat het niet in de buurt zit 🙁
Ja he! Ah, een keer een leuke dagje Amsterdam ervan maken 🙂 X
Nog nooit geweest, ik moet toch echt weer eens vaker naar Amsterdam gaan. het ziet er namelijk heerlijk uit.
Jaa zeker doen! Xx
Vroeger bakte ik pannenkoeken voor de kinderen, ik ben bang dat ik het te vaak heb gedaan. ook bezochten we pannenkoekenboerderijen en zo…Vrijwillig ga ik nergens meer pannenkoeken eten, totdat ik oma ben!
Haha, jammer… want deze pannenkoeken waren wel echt lekker. Gelukkig zijn er nog veel meer hotspots in Amsterdam waar je lekker kunt eten, zonder pannenkoeken haha 🙂
Wat een leuk plekje. En die pannenkoeken zien er echt heerlijk uit.
Dat is het zeker 🙂 Ja he!
Wauw wat zien die pancakes er leuk uit. Dat is nog eens wat anders dan gewoon maar een pannenkoek!
Jaa he! Dat vond ik dus ook haha 🙂 Echt een feestje om deze zo te ontvangen. X
HOW MEAN! Yesterday I saw their Instagram-feed and started to follow them. Now hungry all the time, because PREGNANCY CRAVING IS A PANCAKE! With apple. Or strawberries. Or anything… Really wanna go there when I’m not this size anymore – can push myself down a hill right now and I won’t stop. O-hooh. Love the pictures, by the way.
Ah yes! Thank you 🙂 Sounds like you’ll love this hotspot as well haha. X
These pancakes looks absolutely amazing! I’m so hungry now!
Haha, I have that as well! X
Oh yes, I just love Mook! I don’t even mind to wait there in line on a saturday!
The pancakes are amazing right! Haha, I would too 🙂
