Cool coffeeshop, great decor. This is a great coffeeshop with free internet stations. Their extensive marijuana menu has a great selection of quality products. If you're near Dam Square, it's well worth digging out.

this place is quite small and didnt really have a lot of seat, it was fully full when we arrived so had to stand for 15 mins before we managed to secure a table! worth the wait tho, its chillin in here!!
Menu: 8
the cheese was decent - no as good as the cheese we get in the UK though..wanted to try apple jack but none available! ended up with the jack hearer instead! nice smoke!

A great atmosphere. Abraxas has a trendy eastern style design, with long comfortable seating along the walls with lots of wooden tables sit around. Very well designed, spacious but does get very busy which can sometimes ruin the relaxed atmosphere.
Menu: 6
I\'ve only tried a couple of strains here, Cheese and Juicy Fruit. Honestly they weren\'t anything amazingly special but fair priced and reasonable quality.
Summary
Generally a good coffeeshop. Not the best selection but all seems ok. Its always busy which can be good or bad depends how you look at it. A well known name in Amsterdams coffeeshop scene.
Service: 7
A busy coffeeshop so service can sometimes slack but overall friendly and helpful.

Abraxas is a great shop. The internet stations are a real plus and it is just a very cool shop to chill in. Definitely check it out if you are in the area of central square.
Menu: 8
I ordered some Apple Jack, which was their newest strain, and smelled somewhat sweet but a shitty. The smell when breaking it up was what I can only describe as a sweet pickle being dunked in a bowl of apple jacks. A very chill buzz.
Summary
Service: 8
Service was cool and friendly. Very eager to answer any questions.

Summary
Well known and easy to find a must see when in amsterdam yo.

They did there job i guess. they didnt seem to know who to serve next, i waited to get a drink for ages, too many peeps in there.

Top menu. They had sold out of cheese but tried the apple jack & juicy fruit, both quality.
Summary
Great menu but the guy working spoilt it, plus my mate was freaking out on shrooms a bit.
Service: 5
The guy was a prick, they sell pre rolled joints in card box`s, when my mate asked for some & got some in a biggie instead the bloke got in a right mood when he asked to swap them.

There's a good lively vibe in Abraxas, with an International mix. I have been to this coffeeshop a few times now and the decor always looks good and the shop is clean. If you want a quiet little place to have a smoke then this probably isn't for you.
Menu: 8
The menu rarely changes but I guess I have seldom been disappointed with my choices. I've had some nice Bubblegum, Jack Herer and various hashes from here and enjoyed them all.
Summary
We always make a beeline for this place, even if it is just for the decor and vibe. The Goblin's Tree House on the upper floor has been shut on the last two occassions we have been. Wonder if it will ever open back up ?!? Only ever bought one pre-rolled from here and it wasn't worth it in the slightest.
Service: 9
The staff are always busy and it doesn't really take that long to get sorted with your drinks, cakes and weed. A little patience is all that's required. Have had both very friendly and indifferent reactions from the dealers over my visits.

Service: 10
The service was very good i found! i didnt have a lighter but the woman behind the counter loaned me hers for the duration i was there,I offered it back but she was adament i kept it as she had another! overall a found it 1 of the better places to visit.

Menu: 7
The Juicy Fruit was good but nothing special. Enough choice for everybody.
Summary
Just around the corner from the Dam which makes this the best coffeeshop in the very heart of this city. Crowded with Spanish speaking people.
Service: 9
The most friendly service from the girl behind the bar, who regulary goes upstairs to check if anybody needs a drink. The guy at the counter gives you what you need without any fuss.

Hawaiian Haze...Enough said.
Summary
The fresh-squeezed juice hit the spot after an evening of exploring and adventure in the 'dam. Definitely worth a visit while you're there.

the gear was fine here. I cant remember prices but i do remember the gear was weak compared to 3 or 4 of my fav places. me and a friend got space shakes which did nothing

Very chill atmosphere, nice paintins on second floor, some plants on the third floor although the chairs were not very comfortable for long smoking sessions.
Menu: 9
The Hawaiian Haze was the best bud I smoked during my stay in the dam and the hash chocolates kicked my ass. Little pricey but worth every euro.
Summary
This was by far the best shop I visited in Amsterdam and Its a must for any smoker.
Service: 10
Very friendly dealer, chatted and made sure we got the bud we wanted. Very awesome waitress, she had no problem bringing drinks up to the third floor almost every 20 minutes.

Nice and clean place. Cool upstairs part but couldnt find the toilets. Atmosphere was very chilled and not too busy - which suited me.
Menu: 6
Nice selection of hashfood - bought 2 brownies - not much of a high though.
Summary
I had strayed off from my mates and wondered around for a bit. Saw the sign down a side alley and went in for a drink and walked out with a cool paper bag with hash brownies inside.
Service: 9
Nice girl next door type served me - very freindly. reasonable drink prices.

because it is that fantastic big, i liked the abraxas coffeeshop.it is amazing to have so many people together peacefully and doing one thing.
Menu: 6
it is not cheap to buy rare dope but if you come from a foreign country where smoking hash is not allowed you accept every price for you get what you want :-)
Summary
all in all it is cool and really exciting.everyone around you smokes and doesnt care of the law.i never experienced a chill session so well. thank you amsterdam,im coming back soon.
Service: 6
you need to know what you want,otherwise the waitress/waiter gets impatient.but when you take a look over the tables it could be more cleaned,but who cares?

Lovely place. Lots of effort has obviously gone into making this place so nice. 3 floors, so lots of room. Really nice chillin on the top floor last thing at night. Great for a game of chess/checkers. Overall decor really nice.
Menu: 7
Can't remember much, but it was ok.
Summary
A really nice place to have a long chilling session. Tucked away, it's more spacious than you'd think. Watch the steep stairs though.

We had to wait ages for the dealer and there was a queue, not too good.

The most original architecture of any coffeeshop. That's the main reason for coming.
Menu: 7
Not that cheap, although I bought 5 grammes of charras for a fair price. It was pretty poor from a getting stoned point of view, although that's because a lot of dark hashes are really quite weak.
Summary
Come here to have a look at the interior and the 3 floor layout.
Service: 6
I waited a LONG time bafore there was any sign of a dealer, but that's all part of the Amsterdam experience. It didn't bother me too much.

Nice spatious seating. The grow room showcase was taped up, so we didn't get to see any plants. Music was way too loud and bothering. The glass floor on the 1st floor has become opaque :(
Menu: 3
Expensive ! Special Abraxas : The worst hash of the trip, only made us sleepy, threw almost half of the gram away. Creme de Maroc : Not very spectacular for its price range. Caramello : Nothing special either, rather weak with no special flavor.
Summary
One time I was really stoned and wanted to play backgammon. So I went and took a look at their boards, when the dealer starts shouting at me, what I was doing and that I should have asked him for a board and that I needed to deposit an ID or BANK CARD to be able to borrow a board. When I offered my fiancée's student ID he got really upset and said "What do I want with a student's ID ?" This is so unheard of ! He was so rude and shouted at me, I was also really stoned, I got really pissed off >(
Service: 1
Really depends on who serves you. One time the Brit girl was friendly, other times the Dutch girl there was rude and both Dutch dealers seemed discontent to be bothered !

On two floors and three different areas. Good if you want to use the internet and don't mind a crowded place. Is it always this crowded?
Menu: 8
Quite a lot of choice and good. Our judges had some Creme De Moroc, Dutch Delight and Gloria.
Summary
I want to go back there. I am not sure it's always that crowded and that chaotic, it deserves a second chance....

Busy dealer was serving me while chatting on his mobile and tiding up with his free hand.

Fun place to explore--3 different levels with different rooms (if I recall properly). I really enjoyed the top level sitting next to a mini-grow room.
Menu: 8
The menu was pretty good and I remember enjoying what we smoked-wish I could remember what it was exactly.
Summary
Just a nice place to hang out. Plenty to do from watching cartoons to playing chess to watching beautiful bushes grow.... Just be careful walking down/up the spiral stairs!
Service: 8
The staff there was pretty cool. A bit hurried, but this place always seemed to be busy. I admire the quick reflexes of one of the young servers there as she threw a garbage can at a young Brit just before he threw up. Good eye!

One of the most beautifully decorated coffeshops in Amsterdam, it is also one of the most comfortable. Good music and 3 floors make this a cool place to hangout. Only downside is no decent outdoor views.

Always a good selection. Although varies in quality in my experience.

Visited mostly by British and Americans and a few Dutch, all of whom are very friendly. Overall a very cool place to chillout day or night.

This in my opinion is the best coffeeshop in the Centrum. Its new, trendy, comfortable and above all BRIGHT... Too many of the shops are dark and heavy on the head. Here it's clear, bright and chilled. Very easy to relax!
Menu: 6
I found the menu here quite good... but not great. Always have a good selection though.

Great place to spend the day... yes the day!... Free internet with good access facilities is a big bonus as well... Oh and the best seats I've see in any of the shops I've been in...

Even when the place is jam packed the service is quick and always with a smile... I always make sure to tip big in here.
