The Saint Coffeeshop and Juicebar is found on Regulierssteeg, a small side street of Amstel, in the city’s southern canal belt. It is close to the Bloemenmarkt, Amsterdam’s famous floating Flower Market. This area of the city is also host to Rembrandtplein (Rembrandt Square), which is just a couple of blocks to the southeast. You will find an abundance of restaurants and shopping options here, which also makes it a very popular part of the city among travelers.
The inside of this coffeeshop is fairly small. To accommodate a sufficient number of visitors, guests are focused around small circular tables. Tall, thin stools and long benches provide seating. The décor in here would be best described as jungle themed. There is a great deal of mural art on the walls to that effect. Outside, you will also find a long row of tables and chairs, if you prefer some fresh city air. The Saint would best be described as a traditional Dutch establishment. There are not a lot of frills, but there is a discernible focus on efficiency and service.
This shop does have a noteworthy tradition. Like a few others, it is a place where notes from visitors around the world are proudly displayed, whether they are written on rolling papers, stickers, or just small pieces of paper. Unusual here though is most are affixed to the overhead ceiling. You must have to stand on one of the stools to do it. Not sure who does it or how safe that is, but you might want to ask even if you have good balance.
The cannabis menu is robust at The Saint. On the weed-side they usually have close to a dozen strains, mainly old-school genetics. This shop is more about hashish, though. This section of the menu usually hosts a dozen or more varieties, pressed imports from traditional source countries like Morocco, Lebanon, and Afghanistan. They also make decent edibles here. Where as many shops just list a poorly defined “space cake”, they usually have different flavors of muffins and brownies on offer.
Aside from cannabis, do not forget that this is also a juice bar. If you are interested in some fresh squeezed orange juice or a strawberry smoothie, you are in the right place. They also make good coffee here, along with milkshakes, and a standard selection of other basic drinks and snacks.
