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.
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.
Daily 8am to 1am
CoffeeshopAmsterdam combines the elements of style, top quality cannabis products, Michelin-star "space-try" (think cannabis tartlets so delicious, you wouldn't be able to stop at half), and a killer playlist. What more could you want?

Feel at home at Paradox. The cozy interior is inviting. The playlist is awesome (think Pink Floyd to Sarah Vaughn). And they have the strongest space cake we know. 1 gram in a thin slice of butter cake. Go easy, everyone!
Daily from 12pm to 8pm

Back in 1992, Rookies was the latest coffee shop to open in a sea of veterans. That's how they got their name. Today it's a household name among smokers. It's spacious (seats 70 folks!) and inviting, with a killer playlist.
Mon to Thurs 9am to 11pm / Fri & Sat 9am to 12am / Sun 10am to 11pm

A stone's throw away from Centraal Station and a rock and roll haven. Frank Zappa posters line the wall and a classic rock playlist, this chill coffeeshop serves up cool vibes and offers free vaporiser use as an alternative.
