    Pancake Restaurant "De Kraai"

    by piccolina Updated Oct 7, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    De Kraai (The Crow) is originally warehouse of De Vlijt Flour mill in Wormerveer. Built in 1885. Moved in the Seventies and opened in 1976 as a restaurant, specialising in pancakes.
    Like the most of Bar and Restaurant inHolland, you have to pay for to use toilet, also if your are a customer.

    Favorite Dish: We eated pancakes with bacon, that was just some to eat and not repeat...:((, but a great piece of cake...:-))

    Dutch pancakes

    You will find only one restaurant here, however it’s not bad. It is open year around, with outdoor patio tables when weather permits.

    The menu is limited, but all items I’ve tried with my 3 visits there have been good. Their specialty is the ‘Dutch pancake’, which makes a great lunch or heavy snack.

    An added bonus is they have nice restrooms. While you don’t have to pay to enter, there is a dish outside the door requesting .30 euro. Which is a bargain rate in the Netherlands. ;-)

    If you choose to eat outside, watch out for the cute little birds. I did the mistake of giving one of them a small taste of my pancake… I ended up with a friend for life.

    De Kraai: Pancake Restaurant

    by Imaniac Written Mar 15, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    De Kraai is one of the very few restaurants in The Zaanse Schans. It's a pancake restaurant, but you can also get some sandwiches or salads. There are basic pancakes with sugar, butter or apple. But you can also try a Dutch style pancake with ham & cheese or try one with chocolate sauce and whipped cream. Most pancakes are 7 Euros, but the basic ones are less.

    de Hoop op d'Swarte Walvis: remember the old days

    by tompt Updated May 4, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The name of the restaurant refers to the old days, when this was a centre of whalers. Boats from this area went north to hunt whales. The name translated in english: "Hope for the black whale". The building is a typical Zaanse Schans building. Originally it where three seperate buildings: a merchanthouse, now the kitchen, an orphanage, now the restaurant and a 'vleethuis', a wooden shed used by whalers, now the bar and a private room for large dinners.
    We had a private dinner at the occasion of a 35 year jubilee of one of Gonnie's co-workers.

    Favorite Dish: We had a set dinner, but everything was great. See the picture to get an idea.
