Mr. K and Co.
Mr. K Coffeeshop is found on Tweede Laurierdwarsstraat, which is the second cross street of Laurierstraat (translates as Laurel street). It is located in the Jordaan district, which is of course a famous neighborhood full of high-end boutique shops and even higher-end real estate prices. Mr. K rests on a relatively quiet residential block here. It blends in well with surrounding upscale neighborhood though, perhaps even standing out a bit, with its intricate and highly polished wood facade and beautiful stained glass windows.
The interior of Mr. K is a good deal more basic than its outer appearance lets on. Inside, it is a fairly traditional Dutch coffeeshop. There are not a lot of frills. Instead, the decor is mainly in the form of posters and a multitude of small statues, bits of pottery, tribal masks, and other trinkets that are on display. Though a small shop, they have several distinct forms of seatings including wooden chairs, benches, and a couple of rocking chairs. There is also a very comfortable pillowed nook and elevated couch in the upstairs glass-enclosed smoking room, arguably the shop's prime seating. Additionally, you'll find outdoor seating in the form of a single bench. We would say, however, that this isn't the best location for people watching, nor does Mr. K have a stunning view. Still, this is a peaceful neighborhood, and a rest here might be called for.
The cannabis menu at Mr. K is moderate is size. They tend to list under 10 strains of flower (weed), and maybe a half dozen types of hashish (concentrate). Don't be mistaken into thinking the lack of an expansive selection equates to a lack of interest, however. To the contrary, they seem to be about quality here, and even feature name-brand genetics on their menu. The pricing tends to be reasonable as well, as this isn't a shop that is inundated by tourists. Mr. K needs to also cater to a local clientele, which to their credit do seem to keep coming back.

Mr. K is a down-to-earth unpretentious coffeeshop is a quiet corner of the Jordaan district. They have a chill vibe and “loved by locals” feel, perhaps owing to their focus on cannabis quality and value. This is an excellent establishment, worth a visit if you are in the area.
