“Guaranteed quality”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

My friends and I made the bulldog coffee shop and nearby Bulldog 'bar mack' as the base of most of our shennanigans. Perfectly placed between the red light, Dam square and Rembrandt Square we couldnt fault it. Cheapish lager by Dam standards and good quality too without the need to hoover up happy hours elsewhere. Coffee shop sells the green at weight and in smaller amounts too in order to sample more strains. Again decent qualiity but certainly not the strongest if you want that kind of buzz. The dealers were attentive and informative as well and seemed genuinely concerned about the effects and clarified what exactly was desired. Despite it being a chain certainly not selling out like some Dam establishments. Recommended.

“Not my cup of coffee...”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

For someone that does not drink coffee and neither does drugs there is no real reason to go into this place, unless you are in the company of people who actually want to go inside. The worst thing about this place is that there is no non-smoker area where you can have a drink while your friends are doing the wacky stuff.

“Hit your chill button..”
Reviewed February 5, 2014 via mobile

Several different and quirky places to chill and relax.. An internal area within which you can smoke tobacco and not freeze your buns off. Jazzy bulldog inspired decor with a souvenir shop to rummage through. Enjoy an old favorite of the Dam.

“Clean and Tidy”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

Was nice and clean inside. A little busy but lots of places to sit down. The place is decorated like a prison or police station which is interesting, although I was told it use to be one! Ironic!
