Kensington Church Street is one of those places where even the air tastes more expensive. Beautiful for those lucky enough to live in it's surroundings, despite the architecture, I always feel that the shops and pubs in the vicinity let the area down. 

And so to My Old Dutch, a cheap and friendly pancake chain, occupying the more touristy spots of London. This one is no exception: the menu is straightforward, the staff are friendly and the ambience is that of a muted American diner. The food is as you'd expect, cheap and cheerful but I was shocked at how sugary anything leaning towards sweet was. After a traditional pancake with maple syrup, I felt like I was one step away from type 2 diabetes. 

It's just as you would expect. If you're craving a pancake and you see their orange facade, you won't be too disappointed but I wouldn't go out of your way to go to a My Old Dutch.
