Very cool little shop! Definitely a locals place, but they made me feel welcome which was nice. All the patrons seemed to know each other, very friendly atmosphere. Located on a small side street named Marco Polostraat, just off of Jan Evertsenstraat, South of Erasmus Park, in the Bos en Lommer part of town. It is blended in with apartments, so keep your eyes open when looking. In front there are nice big plants, wall tables with stools, a small TV with sports or news, a very spacious interior actually. Towards the back on the left is the bar with several drink choices; Chocomel, Loozas, Red Bull, coffee, teas, water, etc. The menu had 1 wiet, 5 hasj, and also pre-rolled joints. White Widow seems to be the wiet of choice in these parts, so I got a gram for 7 euro, very nice, one big, crystal coated bud. They made me an excellent cappuccino, and I enjoyed it listening to some great hip-hop music (forget who), a very chilled and relaxed vibe throughout the shop. In the very back there are some video games and outside, a wonderful terras. If you can get out there (sometimes full), it is the coolest place to hang in this part of town for sure. Tables with chairs, a peculiar tree that grows a canopy overhead, several vine plants crawling up the walls, flowers, birds, a perfect little paradise on sunny afternoons. I really feel this is the best shop in this part of town, definitely worth a visit. They also have a sister shop on De Clercqstraat.
