“Stop here as part of the RLD walking tour. ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014 via mobile

Stopped in here as part of TripAdvisors RLD walking tour. I'm not sure why this coffeeshop is not now talked about and good job whoever put it on the tour. Staff were great for a chat and knew their stuff. One of the most unique things about this coffee shop is it has side windows. We sat in a comfy booth and enjoyed the nice interior which incorporated many textures.

“nicest coffee shop in town.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

We went for this coffeeshop after reading about it's good atmosphere and music, and we were not dissapointed! nice and friendly budtenders, good music (varying from budtender to budtender) and really cosy enviorment. The only reason they dont get all stars is that they sometimes play a compilation of human "fails" from youtube, where people get hurt real bad!
Although it sometimes is funny, when I'm high I prefer good vibes and not people hitting their faces :)

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

Best coffee shop in town! Its a very cool place with friendly staff. The menu has lot of choice and I want highly recommend to try the Rainbow cake and Chocomoko, thats two others way how to assume weed without smoking.
Rainbow cake you just eat and will hit you in about 45 minutes and chocomoko the same only you will drink this.
I will come back soon! enjoy guys!

“Awesome Hot Chocolate and Smokes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

Awesome place to sit in or out with a lovely Hot chocolate or Coffee. Not a big weed smoker and they were very helpful to someone who didn't know too much! Not like some places that think every one is a hardcore drug user..!!

Lovely friendly place.

“Great for a first coffeeshop experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

My first visit to Amsterdam & we found this place in the morning as we walked down one of the canal routes.
Our first visit was just for a coffee & a sit down outside. The coffee shop looked very fresh & clean, the music playing was nice & the coffee was very good. We sat outside for half an hour before carrying on with our day.
On our way back we'd walked through the red light district & entered a couple of coffee shops but the athmosphere wasn't very good so we decided to return to Bas Joe's to sample some Amsterdam flavours!!
The same man was behind the counter & asked if we wanted anything from the additional menu which is quite varied. They seem pretty good with advice & making sure people don't go mad on their first trips, we later heard them advising others. Glad to know they are not just dishing anything out to anyone.
I ordered a hot chocolate which was lovely, my friend had a milkshake & the other friend had another coffee. Everything is very clean! The athmosphere (for us) was really good, nice & relaxed, the staff attentive.
For us, this was a great first Amsterdam coffeeshop experience that lasted about 9 hours after we left the place!!!
