We got off the coach at Amstel, nipped on the metro heading for a well deserved breakfast at the legendary Barnies Uptown. I was in a good mood, fairly blasted from the 1gram deal of Lemon Haze from the Bulldog we stopped at on the way. We were both tired and in need of a good bite to eat. My food well it just wasn't edible really, it was the euro to the trash. What a disappointment, dragged halfway over the town in the hope of something a bit special, well the girls serving us couldn't have given a monkeys bollocks about anything to be honest, it would have been easier to have got the attention of a the pope. I felt quite embarrassed to have brought my partner here, she was tired and thought if I had brought her here it must be a nice place, never been so upset about letting her down. Perhaps this place used to be somewhere for the weary traveller to get some nice food but it's a total crap hole now.

Dropped in directly after my arrival at the Centraal Station. Bought some Tangerine dream at their coffeshop (15E/g, very nice stuff) and had breakfast at the Uptown. Bit pricey but totally worth it. Gotta try the Vanilla kush too (14E/g). Got me wasted all day.

Visited here with 3 friends. Perfect place for a cup tea and a spliff before ordering your breakfast. At 13.80 for a full Irish it is a bit steep but you won't be disappointed, best breakfast we had in the Dam! It's well ventilated and spacious unlike some crowded coffeeshops! The staff are nice, maybe a little bit forgetful lol but that's to be expected I guess, will defo be going back!

The ultimate chill out zone. The staff are friendly and helpful, the food is amazing (especially the ceasar salad) and the atmosphere is just so relaxed that you want to spend the whole day there. You can grab a bag of whatever from Barneys just across the road, come in have a drink and some food and just watch the day go by. Also the music is top draw, there is a DJ called Dave (legend) he plays the most soulful jazzy beats, and another guy called DJ Red-Eye (great selection of HipHop). All in All Barneys Uptown is just the perfect place if you are passing through Amsterdam. Location: 5/5 Staff: 4/5 Food: 5/5 Music & Atmosphere: 5/5

The food and drink is lovely (especially the Irish Breakfast), sleek interior and friendly staff and you can smoke. What more could you ask for? Plus the Barneys coffeeshop across the road has the best weed menu for Cannabis Cup winners, loved the G13 Haze & Utopia Haze too, both expensive but worth it!

Although you can't buy weed from here you can buy it across the road at Barneys coffeeshop. You can smoke and drink at Barney's Uptown whilst enjoying a large cooked breakfast.

Serves food from 8am and has booze, but allows you to bring your grass from Barney's, which is just across the street. Uptown looks chic and is trying to go upmarket it seems. More space, you get your own table, less chance to talk to other people it seems and the vibe isn't the same. The Irish breakfast was 13.20, and 2 more for coffee. Seems expensive. Great sound system, could depend on what type of music is playing. Very chic interior, which I guess is a trend in coffee shops.
