Came here after hearing wonderful things and it’s safe to say I haven’t seen the light of day since. After an extremely potent cake I have done nothing but stare at my eyelids. Afternoon well and truly ruined.

I did my research before visiting Amsterdam and this place came up as a place that sold hash cake. I liked it because it wasn't in the main town, it was down a quiet side road which I liked. It is a very small café...More

Jordaan
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll

better known as an enclave for artists and designers.

They didn’t ask for any IDs. We just ordered, waited a bit, and got served. I suppose as long as you don’t look like curious 10 year olds, they won’t ask for any.😜

The only space cake listed on their menu doesn't mention this but it may be worth asking if this has been taken into account?
