“Oldie but Goldie”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

This coffeeshop has ,without any doubt the most interesting decor, which sadly IMO, they have slightly modernised or de-trippified in recent years. I liked it when it was more '70s'style but it still outranks all other coffeeshops in this

The first time I went about 4 yrs ago there was this bouncer dude on the door who rather intensely stared you straight in the eye when you went in, I guess to weed ( ahem) out any troublemakers, but it was a bit in your face literally and unless you're used to him, a bit of a heavy vibe and OTT IMO.

However I think he has moved to the other (not original ) dampring shop on tne other side of the cityand so last time (recently) we went he wasn't there, much to our relief.

The staff here are really lovely though, behind both bars, (one for drinks etc - one for "Amsterdam Coffee"and helpful . Also the music has been really nice each time we went, just the right sort of thing playing. We went about 3 times there, last trip

Certainly it is one of my favourite coffeeshops, but although despite others saying the loos were in good condition , each time I have been they could have done with a little servicing and like a lot of loos in Amsterdam they are tiny (if you have long legs like me)

So I'd give them 5 stars but the loos lose one star

“Cool Place”

This was indicated by Planet Travel as the best coffee shop in Ams and it's true! Staff is really friendly and they help a lot in choosing what kind of smoke you like. Nice environment to hang out with friends.

Ahh...Amsterdam. I love everything about it, specially the coffee shops, and this one is by far one of the best in town. Smoke it up!

“Over hyped”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

Landed in dam today and second stop was here!

Not as good as I thought it would be!

If you want to pretend that your 14 years old, and back in your mates shed hot boxing it cause his parents are away, then this is the place for you!

It's very dark, with loud music and not a lot on the food menu.
Come on I'm stoned, giggling and hungry!!!

Put some food on the menu!!!

Or am I being too fussy?
