The place itself was ok, quite chilled and not too busy. I was served by a guy who seemed nice, very polite and brought my cup of tea to the table as i had dull hands. Mix of tab+weed was €5 which i think was 1-2 euros overpriced, but it was good, so im fine with that.

Not too sure where the guy left, but the girl who was at the bar was quite ridiculous. We only went to amsterdam for a weekend and both have been before, plus this time stuck to "one drink per place" plan so that we get to explore as much as we can, the point in saying all this is that we had probably visites good 15 or even more places and this was the only one where i was shocked about the service. In all other places we visited staff would be polite and friendly but this woman was telling things to people who would come in like - hurry up if you want to stay here. Buy something now or go. Come on hurry up you are wasting time. - and that sort of stuff. I do realize that they want to make more money erc, but in all fairness it wasnt a 5* place and there are tens of other coffee shops arouns so if i was the owner/manager, i would get rid of the woman as she just scared people away.

I would atill say it wasnt too bad, but only ecause the guy who served us saved the whole experience. If youre going in and a woman is at the counter- stay away if you dont want your mood to be ruined.

We had coffee, cake and smokes. Great experience for novices, and the staff were great. The cutest resident cat who walks like it owns the place (probably does!).

Thank lesorlem
