The Loft coffeeshop is located on Jan van Galenstraat, near the southwest corner of Erasmuspark. This is De Baarsjes, a trendy section of Amsterdam West. The surrounding area is strongly residential here, but also hosts an ample collection of small cafes, restaurants, and independent shops. This is undoubtedly a hip neighborhood, as noted by its increasing popularity with the artsy and young professionals alike.
The look and feel of this particular coffeeshop is best described as “urban café”. One of the first things you notice as you walk up is the small section of outdoor seating. A few planters provide the area some privacy, so you feel very much like you’re dining street side, alfresco style. Inside the café vibe continues. There is a small smoking lounge in front. The floor walls and trim are nearly all wood in here. The glass in front runs nearly floor to ceiling, and lets in a ton of outside light. It all makes this place quite cozy and open.
The same group that owns Siberie Coffeeshop also owns the Loft. The management is generally quite serious about their cannabis menu. On the weed side, expect a mix of high quality strains. They generally include a selection of contemporary items, like the ones you’d find on the West Coast of USA. The hash side of the menu is also formidable. This shop is one of very few that publishes some potency and cannabinoid profile testing on their strains. If you don’t see the reports, ask at the counter.
