Vondel

in Tobacco

As seen immediately when approaching this shop, this is quite an upscale location. The façade is made of polished dark wood, and runs the entire stretch, top to bottom, of this street-level shop.

Sensemillia Osdorp

in Tobacco

Sensemillia Osdorp is found on the upstairs of a modern standalone building right on the lakefront. The shop is fairly standard for a dutch coffeeshop, minus one very unique feature. They have an outdoor terrace with a stunning view of the lake.

The inside of Papillon is modern in appearance. Though not especially large, the main lounge area is open and lined with comfortable leather couches. Small square tablets are in front of each. The room has a very cubic and contemporary feel to it.

De Bommel

in Tobacco

De Bommel translates in English as "The Bumblebee." The shop itself is unpretentious, but comfortable. We’d say traditionally Dutch in its practicality. They are not big on flash, but do have WiFi, a tobacco room, and some retro gaming.

Johnny

in Tobacco

Johnny is a modern shop. Its decor includes cleanly painted walls, contemporary light-colored (wood) wainscoting on the walls, plenty of additional wood trim, and thick white mica counters. To put the look into words, we'd say "high-end clinical".

Rookies

in Tobacco

Rookies was opened in 1992. The owners were said to be the youngest coffeeshop owners at the time, hence their adoption of the name "The Rookies". This coffeeshop is a bit larger than it appears on the outside, and has a traditional Dutch vibe to it.

Flower Power

in Tobacco

The decor in Flower Power coffeeshop is fairly basic. However, they do have pinball and arcade games; rare in European cities like Amsterdam, given the premium on space. So if you are into these classic games, Flower Power might just be a nice find.

El Marssa

in Tobacco

While we wouldn't regard this coffeeshop as large, El Marssa is still fairly roomy. This shop is not especially elaborate or luxurious, but is comfortable and real. This is largely a locals place... people know each other here; but they welcome all.
