Stopped here on the way to the city, the cake went down well, made for a blast of a night. Would recommend.

Wow. Please read the instructions. I had a generous quarter. I'm usually one to over egg it and damn did it hit me. Took an hour to kick in and I left my body. From the picture it looks tiny! €6.50 for 4+ gos!

But no really, we stopped by for some space cake. It's 1g in a little slice, and the taste is ok, nothing amazing - but better than some others. They do have instructions on the wrapper about how much to eat, and I would take...More

Honestly just follow the instructions if you try space cake from here! It is so strong. My friends and I tried space cakes from a few other places that didn’t have much of an impact on us, so being the daredevil I am I ate...More

Came here after hearing wonderful things and it’s safe to say I haven’t seen the light of day since. After an extremely potent cake I have done nothing but stare at my eyelids. Afternoon well and truly ruined.

Jordaan
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?
