Solo Coffeeshop is located on Korte Koningsstraat (Short King Street), to the east of Nieuwmarkt Square. This neighborhood is much more quiet than that to the west. Solo has a similarly comfortable and relaxed vibe to it, so this coffeeshop fits in well with its neighbors.
The décor inside Solo coffeeshop is best described as “upscale pub”. There is a lot of dark wood, generally well maintained and polished. Several booths are found on one side of the shop, which provide restaurant-style seating for small groups. There is a long bar on the other, which has pull-up leather topped stools in traditional bar style.
The best seating in the shop is perhaps found near the front. On nice days the shop will often open up one of the wide, front windows. If you are sitting directly beside it, you will have a table that feeds directly to the outside. This allows you to take in the city, fresh air, and sunshine while indoors. This feature would place Solo on the “coolest coffeeshop seating” list were we to have one.
Solo Coffeeshop has a fairly large selection of cannabis products on its menu. The most diverse variety is found on the flower (weed) side, though the shop also seems to carry a nice variety of imported and domestic hashish products. They also serve space cakes, and have a small assortment of pre-rolled joints. Additionally, one will find a pretty decent selection of coffees, teas, and other drinks here.

Best hash brownies
Holy crap strong hash brownies. Didn't sample anything else but these are the strongest I found in Amsterdam. Worth the trip. I didnt feel like buying a pipe just to ditch after our short holiday. So the better half suggested a brownie after looking at the menu in this hip shop. Wow. I intake 40mls of medical grade thc every night. Half a brownie hits harder and at 8 euro what a deal. Going back tomorrow. Cheers!!
Very hip neighborhood shop!
LOVE this place!
If you're looking for a real hip, neighborhood local-style place where the music is on (but soft!!! you can actually hear people speak in this place, amazing!), the hang is chill, and of course the weed is tops, then this is the place! The staff is very very friendly, very helpful, eager to help and explain anything you may not know.
I will be back on every trip!
Solo Coffeeshop is a comfortable shop with an upscale pub/restaurant feel to it.They carry a fairly large selection of cannabis products, and have a nice section of seating near an open front window (warm days). This is an excellent coffeeshop, worth a visit if you are in the area.
