There is basically a counter area with two budtenders along with a couple of seats and another room in the back where there is a kicker table too before you enter the sorta gigantic garden, wow - at least for coffeeshops. Lots of green and small palm trees with about fifty options to sit at. Another fifty inside also coming with mostly comfy seats, general wooden layout but not too cheap at all. Gezellig! Also a Verdamper point for vaping! Menu is : White Widow (9,5?€/g), Gorilla Glue (14€/g), Strawberry Kush (14€/g), Og Kush, Bubble Gum (12€/g), Special (12€/g), Super Silver Haze (12€/g), Amnesia (12€/g), Cheese (13,8€/g?), Buiten (Sensi, indica, 7€/g), Buiten (Purpletta (Sativa, 7€/g). Hash: Afghan (6€/g), ? (7€/g), Polm (7,5€/g), Super Pollen ( (9€/g), Lebanon (9€/g), Z (9€/g), Tbisla (11€/g), Critical Block, Haze Maroc (12€/g), ? (12€/g), Nepal (12€/g), Mazar I Sharif (12,5€/g), Super Afghan (13€/g) Tropicana (14€/g) and King Hassan (18€/g). Asked mid-aged budtender for his recommendation and he gave honest advice. Nonetheless went for their King Hassan after having a look and despite my protest a mate got this Super Afghan but can relate to some degree as all of the hashish was looking quite proper. For one second even thought about getting something off the blonde Lebanon but didn't which they weigh up for you here. The Afghan looked also really good but after trying I knew why I didn't go for it as so often it was a particular earthy taste but a way too weak high for me. The King Hassan on the other hand was particularly overpriced though this is probably down to being in Den Helder but quality was quite good as well. Classic Moroccan goodness, bit more pressed but for some reasons and coming with a gingerish taste profile while giving a strong enough body stoned as well as nice enough heady high. Though only bad point was the quality of their offered wiet which wasn't special at all, also prices for their gear seemed a bit steep. Well worth a visit though!

This was my first visit to a Dutch coffee shop and found the experience very pleasurable. The weed was very good especially the Super Silver Haze. Wow. The staff were extremely friendly and spoke very good English, made me feel very welcome. The outside is really relaxing with reggae style decor. Lots of flowers, plants and mad little quirks everywhere. A stoner's paradise. A very good coffeee shop, not too much choice just enough to cater for all tastes. Have a verdammer vape for customers use. Ideal.

Tops was the first coffee shop I visited on my trip to Holland, as this is where I have friends. Does not open until 2pm. Very relaxed inside and out the back they have a garden where you can chill out and have a nice toke from their great menu. The pre rolled are good. Next door to Tops is Spot where you can buy beer/wine etc. which also joins the garden at the back. So for you people who like to smoke & drink this is perfect. Free internet if you can be bothered. Staff where nice and did not mind me takin my time on which green to toke.

I like the shop very much. I always go there if I am in town. I live 10 kilometres under Den Helder in Julianadorp and in the weekends, if I am not in Amsterdam, I go to The Tops just because it's a good shop. They have free internet and they are very nice to you if you come more times. The weed is great and at night they have a security that helps prevent pickpocketing.
