1. Barneys

A classic coffee shop in an old building on Haarlemmerstraat, to the west of Centraal station. The food menu and friendly staff complete the appeal: Haarlemmerstraat 102, 1013 EW Amsterdam, Netherlands. 0031 20 62 59 761

2. Coffeeshop Vondel

I can’t help plug my local coffee shop, shot at in the recent spate of gun crime. Down-to-earth, friendly, and next to leafy Vondelpark: Overtoom 451, 1054 KH Amsterdam

3. Dolphins

Near the entertainment centre of Leidseplein, Dolphins boasts an aquarium and under-water décor. Sink into a the experience at Kerkstraat 39, 1017 GB Amsterdam 31 20 62 59 162

4. Dutch Flowers

Go off kilter at this central location, where all the décor is at a slight slant: Singel 387, 1012 WN Amsterdam, Netherlands 31 20 624 7624

5. Kashmir Lounge

One of the shops where it is possible to drink beer, this westward venue can also slake your thirst: Jan Pieter Heijestraat 82 1053 GM Amsterdam 31 20 683 22 68

6. Hemp

And finally, while not strictly a coffee shop, Hemp offers seeds and cannabis drinks. They like to engage with customers and discuss the products. Go with an open mind: Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal 80, 1012 SE Amsterdam, Netherlands 31 20 528 5556
