Linda's Dutch Pancakes

Today we were going to Linda's for breakfast. We got there and checked in and had about 1/2 hour wait. We were in and seated by 10:11am. We immediately put in our drink order. Sakari tried the mango, I tried pineapple and daddy had a coke.

It took 15 minutes for us to get our drinks. This place was poppin'!!! I was another 30 minutes for our food. The hubby ended up with a tuna sandwich...weird for breakfast! Sakari had the Ham, Cheese & Pineapple Pancake. This was a dutch pancake with ham cooked inside, topped with Gouda cheese and fresh pineapple. I gasp when I seen it. I knew there was no way she would probably even eat half of that.

I ended up with the Bacon & Cheese: Bacon strips cooked inside a dutch pancake with lots of Gouda cheese melted on top.

Now I'm a bacon freak but this...I wasn't a fan of. It just wasn't my cup of tea (I don't know if it was Canadian bacon or what) and honestly this really didn't taste much like a pancake either. Just a little thin and crispy. It was just very "off" today. It wasn't like I remembered it and definitely not worth the wait or the price. I don't think I will probably come back here again. I would have much rather went to the grocery store for a cheap breakfast again.

So a breakdown of our prices:  $6.20 for the baguette tuna salad, my non-real-bacon pancake $11.30, Sakari's ham, cheese and pineapple pancake $13.45 and drinks $2.25 for a total of $39.00 US / $68.42ƒ

We've been here twice now and it will probably be the last time we come back. Next time, new places and I just didn't think it was worth the money honestly. I know this is a popular place and a lot of people like it so I guess I'm just the odd ball. Who knows.
