De Supermarkt coffeeshop, which as you may have guessed, translates into “The Supermarket”, is located on Frederik Hendrikstraat, in the West section of Amsterdam. You will find it a bit more residential in this part of the city as compared to the Centre. Historic tall apartment buildings and small street-level cafes, boutiques, and a variety of shops dominate the immediate neighborhood. The pace may be slightly slower here, but not by much. Being just outside the canal ring, there is still a lot of activity in this part of the city.
This particular coffeeshop is on one level, and is split into two rooms. In the front you will find a narrow long room, which serves as the smoking lounge. Stools, wooden benches, tables, and chairs provide basic comforts for visitors. This establishment is relaxed and unpretentious in its appearance. It is chill and practical, without unnecessary frills. Green accent lighting provides a bit of a contemporary touch. Otherwise, this is a fairly traditional Dutch coffeeshop.
Behind the smoking lounge is a glass door, which leads to the shop’s counter. Here you can buy cannabis, or choose from a selection of coffees, drinks and basic snacks.
De Supermarkt is actually owned by the same group as Siberië, The Loft, and De Republiek. As such, expect to find a high quality cannabis menu here. The weed list should include a decent mix of contemporary high-potency strains, along with some more established genetics. On the hashish-side, expect a nice selection of quality imported pressed varieties. It is also of note that this is one of the few shops that invests in lab testing its inventory. We are not sure how up-to-date they are, but you should be able to find reports at the counter. If they are not on display, just ask. Each should include a fairly thorough cannabinoid profile.
Beyond cannabis, they serve some good coffee here. Like any good supermarket, they also have a thorough selection of sodas, juices, energy drinks, and your basic collection of candy and packaged snacks.
