4. 1e Hulp

A shop so good, the reviewer didn’t make it through filming. Nevski was so enamored with the experience at this shop; he neglected to film enough footage. His review stayed the same though, and that’s why these guys are sitting at number four on the best coffee shops of Amsterdam.
They have the most comfortable seating out of any on the list, and it’s highly recommended to choose the booths – if available. The staff is very friendly and the prices are perfect. It is a big step above the many coffeeshop tourist traps in the area.

  • Where to Find Them: Marnixstraat 194
  • Top Strains to Try: Super Glue Orange


3. The Old Church

If you are traveling to Amsterdam, the Old Church is easy to find as it’s right around the corner from Rembrandt Square. A charming place for a session, thanks to the chilled out vibes. The staff is very informed about their products and eager to help you make an educated decision.
Generally speaking, it’s mostly a local’s hangout, and the annoying crowds seek other shops to fill. As a bonus, this shop has a free-to-use shatter press. Staff can help you make shatter in the shop, a unique feature. What’s more? Unquestionably fantastic prices.

  • Where to Find Them: Amstel 8
  • Top Strains to Try: The best Purple Haze in all of Amsterdam, and Lemonade (Cali).

2. Grey Area

Sitting at number two on the list is the ever popular Grey Area coffee shop. Everyone loves to go here, both locals and tourists alike. They have covered their walls in mementos from their customers, everything from Polaroids to foreign currencies, to postcards. It’s a very hectic, and eclectic vibe.
They always have very consistent strain selection, and they never drop a menu item if it’s popular. Grey area may just carry some of the best weed in all of Amsterdam (Kosher Kush). Even if there is nowhere to sit, this is a must-visit spot.

  • Where to Find Them: Oude Leliestraat 2
  • Top Strains to Try: Organic Kosher Kush, which may be the best strain sampled on this journey.

1. Boerejongens Coffeeshop

Truly a coffee shop sitting above the rest. As soon as you walk into their space, you know Boerejongen’s shops are different. No dark, dusty vibes here. Clean cut staff members, dressed in white shirts and old-fashioned bowties help you make your selection.
The shop looks like an old fashioned corner store or apothecary, rather than a coffee shop. They carry a wide selection of top quality products, including the best hash in the city. The aesthetic of the place, the warm energy, and the premium products are what make Boere Jongens the best coffee shop in all of Amsterdam.

  • Where to Find Them: Utrechtsestraat 21 and Baarsjesweg 239
  • Top Strains to Try: Super Mazing, was super amazing.
