Kadinsky Coffeeshop on Langebrugsteeg is one of three shops operating under the Kadinsky brand. The street name translates into “Long Bridge Alley”, which references one of the city’s historic (in this case 16th century) wooden bridges. Deconstructed in the 1930s, it is long gone. A lot has changed. This is the Jewelry Quarter now, home to many of the city’s jewelers, jewelry galleries, and gold/silver smiths. There is also many high-end clothing, accessory, and other shops in this area, making this a fairly popular neighborhood for tourist traffic.
The outside of this Kadinsky coffeeshop location is quite aesthetically pleasing, and fits well with the higher priced businesses of the area. The front has a beautiful large window, and the outer façade is of handcrafted polished wood. It gives the shop an upscale city pub feel.
Inside, this shop is also quite nice. The interior is small, but well cared for. There is a lot of wood in here, some handcrafted. Red color dominates, and recessed lighting overhead provides a nice contemporary feel. It is not really needed during the day, however, as the front window lets in a lot of natural light. There is limited seating downstairs. An additional seating room can be found on the floor above, at the top of a creaky narrow staircase. Wooden chairs and tables accommodate the customers in both. The interior still has a city feel to it, but it is a bit more urban café than brown bar.
The cannabis menu at the Kadinsky coffeeshop locations is formidable. There are typically over a dozen strains of weed (flower) available, and a sizable selection of hashish (concentrate) products. While the weed menu is quite diverse and comprehensive, Kadinsky is really known for its hash. They have a reputation for importing some very clean and potent product, particularly from Morocco. They do often stock some more potent domestic nederhasj (Ice-O-Lator) as well.
This brand is known for keeping its customers comfortable, at least with the basics on offer, such as good coffee and teas, and a decent enough selection of soft drinks, juices, and simple snacks.

Love this place!
This was the first coffee shop I came accross and it was right up my street. Having only 4 Tables in the actual coffee shop enables it to not get too crowded and is very cosy. Pretty wide selection of strains to choose from, never been disappointed there! They Also play an awesome variety of music. I Have been every time I've visited Amsterdam so far and will certainly continue to!
One of 3 Kadinsky locations, this is a small shop with limited seating. The interior is modern and clean, however. The cannabis menu at all Kadinsky locations is high quality in our experience, especially the hashish (concentrate) products
