1. Boerejongens Coffeeshop
Boerejongens has by far the best coffeeshops you will find in Amsterdam. Made famous through out the world thanks to their now legendary, White Choco cannabis strain. Constantly striving to provide the best quality to it’s customers. You can compare them to a Michelin star restaurant. The differences between ‘quality’ and ‘Top quality’ are scattered everywhere and in many different ways: the service (product knowledge and customer service), the ever growing diversity of products and species, the finishing touch, the value for money, the ambiance: a greeter in three-piece suit with matching bowler hat which opens the door instead of a bouncer, well dressed staff, a stylish interior that radiates what they stand for: great class. In Amsterdam West, Boerejongens owns two coffeeshops; Boerejongens Coffeeshop West and Coffeeshop BIJ, who are almost in the same street. Because they are in the middle of De Baarsjes, a residential area, Boerejongens decided not to offer a smoking area. Around the shops is plenty of parking spaces and costs only €2,40 per hour. Boerejongens Coffeeshop will open a 4th shop in 2018! The best is yet to come..

Founded way back in 1981, you would be amazed at what you’d hear if the walls of this famous yet pleasantly humble coffeeshop could talk. Then again, there is no need to go listen to the walls when you visit Sensemilia, because the people working behind the counter love to tell you all about that true Amsterdam smoking vibe themselves. So get comfortable and sit down for a joint or two rolled up around decades of cannabis knowhow and love of leaves – Sensemilia is waiting to welcome you at any of their two Amsterdam venues!

Both Sensemilia shops prove that great tradition and excellent modern atmosphere can go hand in hand. You will find it impossible not to relax as you let the wonderful organic hash and weed strains that set Sensemilia apart sink smoothly into your system. You will love the outdoor terrace overlooking Slotermeer lake, and the vibe and atmosphere of the indoor smoking lounges will make it tough to decide on staying in or sitting outside.
