The Noon Coffeeshop, Amsterdam
Nice comfortable seating and chill atmosphere, goed 5 gram deals.
*Tram Locator* The Zieseniskade is parallel to the Weteringschans, a big tram street on which the tram lines 6, 7 and 10 all run. Get off at the stop for the Rijksmuseum and walk until the bridge that leads to the entrance of the museum is in front of you. Turn all the way around so the towers of the museum are BEHIND you, and walk up the street. It is called Nieuwe Spieglestraat. First thing you do is cross a bridge and go left (on the near side of that canal) onto the Zieseniskade. Noon is ahead on the left at number 22.
Dress Code: Casual
This is a nice little coffeshop right on a canal. It's a nice place to chill with the comfy sofas. (I just went to the coffeeshops to see how they were :-) There seems to be a mixture of tourists and locals. According to my friend the NYC Diesel was great. I also heard the White Melon was good but I didn't have a chance to try it, as I was in Amsterdam only to look at the canals and architecture, not smoke cannabis. Don't get too stoned though, my friend did and we were unable to visit the museums.
