The top rated coffeeshops

I'm hearing great things about Grey Area and Amnesia in relation to the quality of their product.

But, having said that, i am yet to experience these places myself . However, i will be this weekend and will post my experience.

Has anyone else got any useful information and advice in relation to the best coffee shops for quality product, atmosphere, venue etc.

Cheers - Happy smoking!

I had a great experience with Stone's Cafe on Warmoesstraat 59. I went there because the guy working the desk at St Christopher's Inn at the Winston recommended it. He also warned me the prices was a little higher than other Coffee Shops. I was ok with it since it was only a few blocks down from where I stayed.

Granted the shop is small but it was worth every penny. I'm heading back for my 42nd birthday in Sept. I plan on trying a few other places. This will be my 3rd trip to Amsterdam. I usually went back to my Hostel so I'd be in a safe environment.

Be careful when in Amsterdam. On leaving for the airport at Central Station, I was strip searched by 5 plain clothed Police officers looking for marijuana. They told me if they found a joint on me, I would be arrested. I said to them you must be joking as the whoe place reeks of it, go to a coffee shop and hassle them, not tourists. So be aware tourists, Amsterdam is a joke if the police treat you like this.

A troll or someone the victim of a scam?

No Amsterdam police did that search. Not for a joint. That is beyond silly.

But some low life's may have seen an easy mark. You let them feel around inside your pockets?

You better make sure you know how much money you had and how much you have.

Fake police is not a totally unknown occurrence.

Real,police did not do that-------assuming it actually happened as stated.

Absolutely go to the Grey Area. You will regret it if you do not. The quality if top notch. Avoid the Coffee Shops in the Red Light District if you can help it. I used to buy at the Stone's Cafe and after trying the Grey Area, holy smokes, The GA is very friendly and helpful. Only downside is its a small shop and usually a wait of 20 to 30 minutes. Which should be a testament to the quality of their products.

They were undercover Police, they also had a dog that started sniffing around me. It happened so quickly that I was in a state of shock/disbelief. It happened on a train platform at Central Station while waiting for the airport train. I'm not a troll, nor am I lying. I wrote this just to tell people just to be careful as it is the truth. It upset me & ruined my Amsterdam trip. I have been to Amsterdam many times and love the place.
