Best Places for Space Cakes in Amsterdam

Picture of Tom Coggins
Updated: 25 April 2018
Considering that there are around 250 licensed coffeeshops in Amsterdam, it is rarely difficult to find a decent spot to buy or consume cannabis products. In fact, many coffeeshops make their own edibles and openly sell homemade cookies, cakes and brownies laced with THC. Read on to discover the best places for space cakes in the city.

Utopia Coffeeshop

Coffee Shop, European, $$$
Save to wishlist
As Utopia lies around 50 metres away from Dam Square, it is within walking distance from many of Amsterdam’s most popular attractions and nighttime hangouts, including other bars and coffeeshops around de Wallen and Leidseplein. Even though it ranks among the most central coffeeshops in the city, it isn’t the easiest place to spot and thankfully, its street-side windowed entrance is marked with a large graphic bearing its name. This door leads onto a long smoking lounge complete with bench sofas, chairs and tables. Utopia’s menu includes many different strains of cannabis and two types of space muffins. It is also possible to spend the night at Utopia by booking a bed inside its hostel, which is located on the floors above the coffeeshop.

This down-to-earth coffeeshop lies within Amsterdam’s laid-back de Jordaan district, which is renowned for its charming historic architecture and cafe culture. Like many other venues in the neighbourhood, Paradox is housed inside a renovated, historic building, in this case, an old stable that was once owned by Amsterdam’s fire department. Besides selling some of the finest space cakes in the entire city, Paradox also serves a wide variety of beverages like homemade milkshakes and hot chocolate topped with whipped cream. The coffeeshop’s owners are eager to support Amsterdam’s local art scene and organise small, onsite exhibitions throughout the year. This means that there are usually a number of artworks installed inside the coffeeshop, creating another layer to Paradox’s appeal.

420 Cafe

Save to wishlist
Much like the vast majority of the coffeeshops in Amsterdam, 420 Cafe is located within the city’s bustling centre. Even though it is surrounding by busy shopping streets, 420 Cafe is famously laid-back and features a charming smoking lounge that’s decked out in brown, wooden decor and posters of rock musicians. It is easy enough to spend entire evenings chilling out inside this rustic, pub-like lounge while sampling the many types of weed, hashish and edibles available from 420 Cafe’s bar. The coffeeshop tends to play classic, rock music through its stereo system, which matches perfectly with 420 Cafe’s general ambience.
