Affordable pancakes for students and families May 31, 2011
Me and 2 of my friends went to see the musical We Will Rock You, and before we went to the theater we had pancakes in 'De Oude Muntkelder'. The restaurant is centrally located along the docks of the main canal in Utrecht and it is walkable from the station. The access is through the stairs that lead you down to the restaurant.
The welcome by the staff was nice, but they became very rushed as the restaurant got busier. The interior is not that modern and it could use a little updating. The restaurant is a bit cramped, however, you will not be spending a lot of time here so that is acceptable as well.
Their target group is obviously families with children, but for students like me it's a great place to grab a quick meal.
The menu offers a lot of different kinds of pancakes, starting with the normal ones with the regular toppings, such as syrop, sugar, apple, bacon, ham, pineapple, etc. So called international pancakes are also offered. Each pancake has the name of a country and the toppings fit accordingly. For example, I had the Belgian pancake, which included apple, raisings, nuts, Marasquin and whipped cream, which didn't taste that spectacular, but it was fine for that price.
The prices vary from €5,70 to €11,45. We paid €40 in total which is very acceptable.
In all, 'De Oude Muntkelder' is an affordable pancake restaurant with lots of choice. Don't expect a lot of attentiveness from the staff when it's busy, but it's a good place if you need a quick simple meal in the center of Utrecht.
