This little place is easy to miss and hard to resist!
The endlessly busy Pfanntastic Pannenkoek Haus is a new favorite in the family. We really wanted a yummy breakfast and stopped on by the Pannenkoek Haus. We were really surprised at how busy it is, the entire time there was a steady line up.
After we were seated, we quickly ordered some coffee, and had a great cup of coffee. Served with a ginger cookie, it's dark in body and flavorful! Plus the waitress's are relentless at making sure your cup is full - Fabulous service needless to say!
Overlooking the menu, the options make your head spin. They all sound amazing from savory to sweet, warm blueberries and ice cream to bratwurst and sauerkraut, there is something for everyone. I had ordered the warm Saskatoon Berry, and Nathan ordered the month special.
The food comes out fairly quickly especially when you consider the amount of orders they have. It's served on a large plate, and piping hot - Dig In!Sprinkled with icing sugar, the warm Saskatoon berries are not too jam like. You get whole berries in a great glaze, served on top of a perfectly cooked crepe. It doesn't seem like it will fill you up but don't be fooled these things are filling. It was refreshing, sweet, fruity completely delish!
The monthly special is making with bratwurst, shredded potato and Edam cheese. The crepe isn't soggy or clumped with ingredients. It tastes amazing! I was a bit jealous. The sausage is thin sliced and scattered all over so you get a bit in every bite. The cheese is mild and provides a great salty element. It is served with spicy mustard and sauerkraut...perfect acidity and spice!
Overall I would make this a must try on your list bring your family and friends as well they will love it!
Enjoy and Stay hungry Calgary!
