You gotta give it to Barney's. They own 3 shops, all located on the "high street" in Amsterdam, Haarlemmerstraat, home to many coffee shops. You can buy their products from Barney's coffeeshop and enjoy it on the spot. Or head over to Barney's Farm or Barney's Uptown to enjoy their products and a burger and beer all at once!
