Ate a whole cake, waited three hours, 1 hour longer than it was meant to take to kick in, and i still didn’t feel anything.

Very nice coffee shop, large selection, STRONG items. Space cakes are legit but VERY strong, proceed with caution and have a good time.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
