More or less bright place with indeed a community table which I like as others pointed out before. Here they have a nice selection of mostly classic strains, all pre-packed. You either buy for 5€ or 10€ if memory serves me right. Free tea and bit of a locals place which can be hit and miss in my experience. Recommended for a look at the menu at least.

Nice social place, putting in the big common table was a great idea, putting bowls with candy, a stroke of genius :). About the quality of the merchandise: as long as you ignore the lower end of the price-scale, you're ok (especially with the "Stuff van de Keizer"-hash).

I read so many good reviews about this shop here that I absolutely wanted to try this shop. But I'm getting disappointed, it's a bit grubby and the staff is a little bit distant and not that friendly how it was reviewed! Anyhow I bought 2 sorts of weed but they weren't very special and full of branches. And most of the weed was out of order! The only positive thing I remember about this shop, there are big plates with candy standing on every table!

First time I went there I was quite impressed. Last time (two weeks ago) this was gone. I buy some hot chocolate and I must say I can get the same in Germany on the street if I want. Nothing special to me. Next time I buy more of these Hassan`s Gold. Or I try the shop a few meters away (De Pinguin) and there is no ghetto-style area around. Which way of living do you prefer? Not everybody can be a millionaire.

Very "old school" kind of shop that generally has some good smoke (hot chocolate hash being my favorite). However, they only sell prepackaged bags. I don't like that at all (other shops in the neighborhood are somehow able to weigh out my order while I watch), but what is worse is that I have recently been charged more than the price posted next to the prepackaged bags. I wasn't in the mood to debate it (and as I say, I do like the product). Maybe this was a "foreigner surcharge" or perhaps they really can't be arsed to update the posted prices. In any case, buyer beware.

I thoroughly enjoyed this coffeeshop and actually was my favorite out of all that I visited in the Netherlands. The reason for this is that, I'm assuming the owner, was such a down home cool guy. He would bring out plates of sandwiches, pastries, always had tea/coffee overall very accommodating! I enjoy the huge wooden table that everyone sits around no matter what the language we all communicated on some level. The prices were very reasonable especially compared to Amsterdam! I can't express enough the joy I had at this establishment. I hope this encourages more people to visit.
