Amsterdam coffeeshops attract thousands of tourists every year. For some people, the possibility to try legal cannabis is the main reason to visit the city, while for others it is just one of the things they want to tick off their list of experiences.
If you are new to the world of coffeeshops, it is a great idea to try one of the coffeeshops that is geared to relaxing in, with space to sit and have a coffee, enjoy breakfast or a sandwich, and while away some time watching the comings and goings of people. Below you will find some coffeeshops that are known for their food offerings, but there are too many to list, so you may well find more.
Let them eat cake…
It is worth noting for novice users of coffeeshops, that many “Cakes” and “Muffins” for sale in Amsterdam coffeeshops actually feature cannabis as an ingredient, so take care that you know what it is you are ordering – the price should give you an indication, as this ingredient will make the product more expensive.

Many Amsterdam coffeeshops sell coffee, cookies, juices, smoothies and snacks. They may not list these on their websites, that is because by law coffeeshops are not allowed to advertise, so many of them don’t bother to keep website entries updated. Ask around for recommendations or if all else fails, have your breakfast at your hotel or B&B before going to a coffeeshop if you can’t find one that serves food in your area.
