Cafés and coffeeshops

't Ballonnetje
Juices, milkshakes, 30 kinds of tea, homemade soup, and light meals make the "Coffeeshop Balloon" a good bet for the chamomile-and-ginseng crowd.

"Real food" (including sushi on Saturday) is a high point at Bluebird, which has been catering to university students, professors, artists, and tourists since 1982.

The Bulldog
In addition to The Bulldog Mack and The Bulldog Palace cafés, The Bulldog Company's properties include a hotel and coffeeshops for cannabis fans.

Hemp Temple Nightbar
Drink hemp beer and spirits, suck a hemp lollipop, play games, and meet new people.
