Nice cool vibe , locals and tourists young and old. I like the musical choices and each staff has their own sound they get you into to. I actually do get coffee and it's good.

Very bright and welcoming. Feels just like a café and not a smoky weed shop. Ladies at the counter were very helpful and friendly. Space cake very tasty. Mix of different people, tourists and old locals. Very relaxed. Definitely recommend

This coffeeshop is one of the best known in Amsterdam, and for good reason. Chill feel and knowledgeable staff.

The space cakes are such a sham. Overpriced and useless. The staff is friendly but everything is ridiculously expensive.

My boyfriend did research on the best cafes to visit in Amsterdam before we went for our trip. This little hole in the wall was definitely the best. Fast and discreet service and great value for money.

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.

They didn’t ask for any IDs. We just ordered, waited a bit, and got served. I suppose as long as you don’t look like curious 10 year olds, they won’t ask for any.😜

The only space cake listed on their menu doesn't mention this but it may be worth asking if this has been taken into account?
