Het Ballonnetje

I've heard wicked things about the coffeeshop 'Het Ballonnetje' which is up on the Roetersstraat opposite the university. It supposed to be one of the best places to visit if you fancy a quieter and more relaxing vibe away from the centre. Was just wondering if anyone has been there at all recently as I can't wait to go IN 34 DAYS! :D

Hey,

Yeah, I was there in the past year, actually back in June. It is my favorite shop for years now. So laid back!!! See my reviews in the ACD web site. Anyways, Ballonnetje has many teas to choose from if you're into that, the gal that is usually there is very nice and makes great coffee drinks as well. Try the Looza fruit nectars, great to go along with your buds. Their weed prices are very reasonable, 6.80 euro a gram for most vareties, and they now have several hash types to choose from, I suggest the Dutch Delight or Blonde Morocan. For weed try the White Russian, Ice, or Gronic if they have it. Trust me, it is well worth it to go to Ballonnetje, go upstairs and check out the cozy balcony, then chill outside on the terras. Oh, I will warn you, roll your joints inside, they don't like you to roll outside or use pipes etc., joints only on the terras, inside everything is fine. You will definately have a great time here. The staff is very nice, good music, simply one of the best to chill in. It can get full however, more so in the evenings. Go check it out and leave me an update!!! Have fun!!!

Yep, it's a brilliant shop. I moved this topic to the reviews section. Hope you don't mind.

No probs about moving the post Lemming, makes sense to be in this section. Cheers Doody for giving me the lowdown I'll let everyone know how I get on. Hopefully there will be a couple of gorgeous university chicks there to brighten up the day when I go. :D

How do you get there?

Hey,
Which trams stop near there? It sounds like a great shop, so I would love to check it out next time I go to Amsterdam.
Thanks a lot,

Looks like its the 6, 7 or 10 tram that runs the closest, hopefully in 3 weeks today!!! I'll be in Holland and when I get back I'll be able to tell you 100% which tram is closest!!

If you find yourself in this part of town, by all means stop in. I went to see a show at the Carre Theater earlier this year and it is fairly convenient for that.

Loved this place. Het Ballonetje and Rusland are sister shops, with identical drink and weed menus, and arguably the best selections of teas in the city. Mrs. C.J. rates the coffee milkshakes 10/10. We had the Jack Herrer here (1g/E6.80), and it was typically spectacular. But if you go upstairs, be careful, they're ridiculous, even by A'dam standards!

Sound little local's type shop away from the hecticness. Relaxed vibe with a few people playing games (there's a house chess etc...), cheaper drinks than in the centre and a good menu with a few different bits on there. We ended up getting a couple of grams of Cherry Bud for 15 euros, which was another smooth smoke with a slightly fruity taste. If you're anywhere near the area its well worth an hour or so of your time, and if your place is nearby, its a good local.
