Devastated Homegrown Fantasy has closed. I've been going for at least 20+ years, I think I remember when they opened. No new location? Just gone. So upset. Fantastic place for a weekday hangout.

This place plays the best music ever and the decor takes you straight to the 60s. You could spend hours here and not realize how time goes by. The place serves great coffees, hot chocolates and cakes too. I would come back here just for...More

As we visited Amsterdam we tried to find a quiet coffee shop. All of the ones located in the center looked too confusing, packed with tourists (Ajax - Celtic game was on that day, so it was specially chaotic), so we decided to get a...More

Holy Grail and Chocomel from homegrown fantasy is the ultimate combination. The orange juice was good one day but not the next. The toilet was glow in the dark too. Great place

We stopped by Homegrown Fantasy one evening for a coffee and a quick puff. Selection was ok, nothing special but not bad. Coffee was pretty much the same as most coffeeshops. Staff were ok, not overly friendly but certainly not rude. Big sign in the...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
