Arguably the first ever coffeeshop in Amsterdam, this establishment combines cannabis history and getting high with an excellent central location. With seating overlooking the canal on the inside and seating on the edge of the canal outside, this coffeeshop is an ideal place any time of year. The décor of memorabilia like old photos, newspaper articles and the orange (you'll understand once you get here) tells the story of this venerated establishment, which gives off a pub-like atmosphere. Computers with internet access are available (for a fee) for any last-minute travel arrangements or any web addicts and the staff are friendly and helpful. Finally, the herb purchasing area is seperate from the drinks area. A small, but important detail when you want to get your smoke on in a hurry.
