Often discussed before: http://bit.ly/YQh9QJ > just note the dates and find the more recent threads.

'Best' is also subjective. Best product? Best atmosphere? Best location?

The winners of the Cannabis Cup might be the best....

I have not been there but without a doubt the most iconic coffeeshop in Amsterdam is the Dampring as featured in the movie Oceans 12. Hopefully one of our DE's (MrJohnMD) will be along to add to the conversation.

My personal favorite is Barney's Lounge on Reguliersgracht. Very much upscale with a mellow vibe. Nice clientele with GREAT staff.

Another shop I have not been to but comes highly recommended:

http://www.420cafe.com/

Other highly recommended shops:

http://paradoxcoffeeshop.com/ (laid back, off the beaten path, little older crowd)

This is the best website for coffeeshops with an interactive map. When clicking on individual shops, be sure to scroll down until you come to the newer reviews.

Dampkring is a personal favorite of mine. The scenes of that movie being filmed there is a bonus. That was such a great inside joke.

But for product it's hard to beat the reviews for the Grey Area.

It lacks a nice vibe, the service as far as friendliness has been critiqued over the years, it's tiny-----good luck finding a seat-----it's not the cheapest-------, the place is legendary.

It certainly qualifies as a can't miss.

I think it's a matter of personal choice as to which is the best coffeeshop....some like the chilled out laid back places,, others like themed coffee shops some loud music etc.. One of my favourite Sunday morning places has to be 420 cafe ( cafe de kuil) as it used to be called.. But say for example on a Saturday evening I would go somewhere like prix dami... Dampkring is one to try aswell but you can struggle to get seated .. Katsu is another one of my favourites but is not as central but worth the walk....
