This place did seem quite crowded, however it's right in the center of a busy area and to be honest everyone we met there seemed to be conscious not to be a jerk to anyone else in such close quarters. Overall, it might seem a...More

Nice place to have a chill time with your friends, it was a bit small but still okay. The muffins were not that good though.

I appreciate that this is a brand name and ofcourse it’s very busy and everyone wants to check it out. It would’ve been better if it wasn’t more of a ‘hurry up and buy your weed’ kind of style. I’ve never felt so rushed in...More

It was the first. Worth a visit for that reason alone. Experience where the Amsterdam coffee shops got started. Do it for the history.

To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
