COFFEESHOP IN AMSTERDAM

In Amsterdam, a coffee shop sells more than just coffee. (For java alone, visit a koffie huis or cafe.) You can get a side of cannabis with it, too.
 
With 164 coffee shops in Amsterdam, it's hard to know which ones to hit. Here are our top 10 for your every need.

1. BOEREJONGENS COFFEESHOP

Utrechtsestraat 21

Mon - Fri 7am / Sat & Sun 9am to 12.45am

These guys are the ultimate sommerliers. Expert advice, great products and an upscale setting. This makes for an high-class smoking experience in a classy joint. So try not to wear Crocs and a hoodie.

2. ORIGINAL DAMPKRING

Handboogstraat 29

Daily from 10am to 1am

Mind-bending Bohemian-inspired interior meets milkshakes and the whiff of George Clooney's aftershave. This famous coffeeshop had a scene shot in Ocean's 12 and Anthony Bourdain's "The Layover". Look out for the house feline!

3. PARADOX COFFEESHOP

Eerste Bloemdwarsstraat 2R

Daily from 10am to 8pm

Feel at home at Paradox. The cozy interior is inviting. The playlist is awesome (think Pink Floyd to Sarah Vaughn). The staff know their stuff. And they have the one of the best cakes out there. 

4. GREY AREA COFFEESHOP

Oude Leliestraat 2

Daily from 12pm to 8pm

This funky coffeeshop has lines out the door every day. And for good reason. Excellent products, cool vibes and a young crowd. Plus it's the coffeeshop of choice for celebs like Snoop Dogg and Rihanna.

5. DE TWEEDE KAMER COFFEESHOP

Heisteeg 6

Daily from 10am to 1am

Tweede Kamer is like a brown cafe for smokers. Cozy, old-timey vibe with its wooden interior. The menu is awesome. And they serve coffee from local coffee roaster, Lot61 and they are neighbours to the famous Van Stapele cookie.

6. BARNEY'S COFFEESHOP

Haarlemmerstraat 102

Daily 8.30am to 1am

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!

7. ABRAXAS

Jonge Roelensteeg 12-14

Daily from 8am to 1am

The fairytale-like decor transports you to another time and place. The ambience is great. They have an extensive menu and knowledgeabe and friendly staff. Plus, it's located right in the heart of the city, making it easy for you to crawl back to your hotel room. Abraxas Coffeeshop is one to visit. 

8. THE ROOKIES COFFEESHOP

Korte Leidsedwarsstraat 145 - 147

Daily from 8.30am to 1am

Back in 1992, Rookies was the latest coffee shop to open in a sea of veterans. That's how this green-horned, fresh-faced coffee shop got its name. Today it's a household name among smokers. It's spacious (seats 70 folks!) and inviting, with a killer playlist that ranges from reggae to rock-and-roll. 

9. COFFEESHOP SIBERIE

Brouwersgracht 11

Mon to Thurs 9am to 11pm / Fri & Sat 9am to 12am / Sun 10am to 11pm

This beautiful coffeeshop has one of the most laidback vibes, thanks to its great location by the serene "brewers canal". Smoke up and get your fate read during their occasional free horoscope readings. Look out for live music on the weekend.

10. 420 CAFE

27, Oudebrugesteeg

Daily from 10am to 1am

Their name may suggest otherwise, but they have more than just coffee. Nestled between 2 busy shopping streets, this charming brown bar-like coffeeshop is surprisingly laid-back and plays some excellent classic rock music. 

After visiting our coffeeshops, the best way to pamper yourself is to join a Munchies Food Tour! Eat up all the Dutch eat-essentials and international treats. B*ng Appetit!
