The Pannekoekstraat, perhaps even better than the wellknown Witte de Withstraat, perhaps not. Anyway, there is a lot happening out there. So if you like to shop a lot or just want to have a drink or eat something, try something different for once and take a look at the Pannekoekstraat. I’ve selected five hotspots for you. But you have to remember: there is more, a lot more!
Pierre (Pannekoekstraat 38A)
A few weeks ago we wrote an extensive review about Pierre already, but I couldn’t leave this piece of Paris in Rotterdam out of this list. Why? Well, this beautifully decorated brasserie with that mosaic floor, lovely French furniture and big bar just brings back all those fantastic feelings about Paris. Only the language that is spoken around you doesn’t match. I’ve really enjoyed the good coffee, but especially the slice of chocolate cake with whipped cream on top. A real feast! Therefore I like to say: “Bientôt, a Pierre!”
Be.So.Different (Pannekoekstraat 39A)
The Pannekoekstraat is a street with lots of lovely small stores for him and her. That’s why I feel like there should also be a shop in this list of hotspots. If you like to surprise your girlfriend, or – in case you are a woman – want to shop for yourself, make sure to take a look at Be.So.Different. Nice dresses, warm sweaters, beautiful jewelry and accessoires for a friendly price. For sure you will buy something! Next to the friendly prices, the staff is great as well. Very helpful and kind.
DeliGriek (Pannekoekstraat 58A)
You will be amazed by this small shop annex lunchroom. At DeliGriek they sell lots of beautiful products from Greece, both from the islands and the mainland. Like olive oil, wine, beer, herbs, olives, cheese, food and many more. So would you like to buy something for at home or would you just like to enjoy lunch overthere? Just do it, everything is possible and be surprised by all the delights DeliGriek has to offer you!
Bokaal (Nieuwemarkt 11)
Okay, to be honest, the main entrance is not on the Pannekoekstraat. But Bokaal really does have an entrance at the Pannekoekstraat, so that justifies it for me to put it on this list. Because if you love to drink beer, and I do, this is the place to be. A lot of beers on tap, even more bottled. You can live the real beer dream here at Bokaal! But next to that, the food is great and the looks of the bar are really good as well!
Pastakantine (Pannekoekstraat 22A)
Italian food at its best. That’s what you will remember after you have enjoyed dinner at the Pastakantine. Nothing to complex, they just let the ingrediënts do their job. Not only the food is delightful, the venue itself is pretty awesome as well. The place is very bright and the furniture that is used really fits the concept!
