“Perfect for your first visit to Amsterdam!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

Myself and 3 friends visited Greenhouse to round off our day-trip to Amsterdam. What a wonderful little coffee shop! Quirky atmosphere, heart-warming coffee and delicious cake... everything we wanted out of 'The Coffee Shop' experience.

I have recommended this place to a number of people since and will be returning this weekend after a 12 month absence to get my top-up of Amsterdam - cannot wait!

“disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

Was quite excited to visit this coffee shop, although quite cool on the inside, loads of photos with cool celebrities, good hot chocolate! But the service was terrible, staff looked like they were fed up of being there, one of the guys at the counter almost yelled at us for asking a question and the gilrs at the bar were way too busy with their phones and private conversation to serve us. Anyway would come back but not for the service.

“Crowdy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

I was looking forward to visiting one of the most famous coffeeshops in Amsterdam. It was (as usual) very crowdy and smokey. The bouncer was rude, ordering people to sit while there was no free spots... But the milkshake was good.

“Above Average”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014 via mobile

I had expected more guidance before I decided which product I should try; yet couldn't get much. Still, the location's great and people are not rude.
