Nothing to complain about - leaning more towards pleasing tourists (rock band posters, decor of antique like items adorn the walls) in the \"States\" TGI Fridays comes to mind. But not in a negative way. But perhaps over thought...tourist-ish.
Menu: 8
Good, fine. But, while in Amsterdam, my focus in on the hash.I live in California and some of the best cannabis in the world is there and I have a lot. But, the hash - nothing close in the \"States\". Rookies has a good line of hash, good quality.
Summary
Had an espresso and smoked a bit of the \"King Mohamed IV.\" Very nice, Indica heavy buzz. Also bought some local produced \"Ice-O-Lator\" - Space Dust for certain.
Service: 8
Friendly but direct and a bit pressured. Eye contact fleeting but not avoidant, doing their job. Again, not negative, just perhaps the nature of remaining attentive in a more populated, tourist area.

A very nice place with a big smoking area, so there's always a seat for you.
Menu: 10
This was actually the best weed I tasted in A.dam, so if you just happen to walk by the place go get yourself a gram of Cheese and a gram of charras and you'll be well on your way to a nice stoned evening.
Summary
A must sit down and smoke, have a game of backgammon, kind of coffeeshop. It really should be on every tourists go see shop.
Service: 10
The budtender was very chatty and full of knowledge about their products and he always had a smile lurking when I was there.

More like a bar than a coffeeshop, has a (touristy) bar vibe to it too. Large, spacious coffeeshop.
Menu: 5
Menu is pretty limited (and more expensive) than other shops. Some quality weed on menu though.
Summary
Being a non drinker, I prefer the atmosphere of a coffeeshop, not a bar. But I still visit here sometimes. Good place for people watching.
Service: 8
Service is generally very good with a friendly, knowledgeable staff.

We stumbled on this place (literally) on the Sat afternoon and didn't leave until Sun afternoon. In short, a chilled out atmosphere with a great sound system.
Menu: 7
A good selection of weed with beginners notes for the uninitiated. The selection of bongs and pipes were first class.
Summary
If you enjoy a Sunday game of chess whilst drawing on a huge spliff with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice then this is the place for you.
Service: 9
bar staff were young, trendy and very helpful.

Just like a mini bar/pub in London, very relaxed not many tourists and the quiz machine is a must after a couple of splifs!
Menu: 8
small if good selection, but talk to the bar staff all of whom know about the smokes on offer and will be able to pick one to suit your preference.
Summary
One of my favorites
Service: 8
Very friendly and chatty people, fresh juice, cold beer and good quality spirits makes us Londoners feel right at home.

loads of space, looks like a regular bar with a pool table and seating aplenty. it's great if you bag a seat next to the window to watch the world go by.
Menu: 7
wide range of gear at a good price. The orange bud was my first score in the dam, so it will always be memorable.
Summary
one of the best "tourist orrientated " coffeshops. I always seem to get a giggle out of going here, on our last visit, an american dude nearly hacked up a lung after hittin a doobie too hard and had to leave out of sheer embarrasment!
Service: 8
very helpful, and they'll sort you out with the high your after. After getting a very expensive looking glass bong from the bar, I was then watched like a hawk in case I broke/nicked it! thankfully I don't get paranoid.

Another typical-styled cafe/coffeeshop with a large bar and lotsa space. Many tables make it easy to really have a group of headz! Nice place if you want to get really tweaked.
Menu: 7
Solid menu at a solid price. I really need to try a few more of their samples before I make a final judgement!
Summary
Rookies; I didn't even know it was a coffeeshop at first! I went in for a drink and was very surprised and happy to see they had some choice gear here too!
Service: 7
The staff is friendly and they are surprisingly chill for an "alcohol spot". I forgot if there's table service.... uhhh, I better go again.
