Basjoes

Is this coffeeshop worth a visit.My trip is coming up and I was curious if I should give it ago.
Boner

Yes, really nice staff (2 brothers) who will look after you and top quality goodies, the puntjies hash I got @6 a gram was worth more, top view as well:



Doesn't really do it justice.

This is a great place.They are really nice guys,made me feel very welcome.James is possible the most stoned person I ever meet,but he remembered my name though.They also had the strongest weed of the trip.Bubble Haze,it was not on the menu but he recomended it.It was sticky buds covered in resin,rare in Amsterdam.We smoked a joint and me and my buddy were both like I'm stoned.Also try the cristal.Best tasting bubble I had while there.30 euros a gram.The fruit smoothies are also great for dry mouth.This is a pic of both.(pics removed)

If we can get it in on CRAWL DAY that would be awesome   But it is a must hit for sure  
cheese

i definetely think that is an option... i have a few different routes we can go depending on the shops we want to hit... i will have it all ready to go on the 15th...

i always here so much about this shop.. one of my friends from home went to amsterdam and his hotel was close to this shop.. he said it was his favorite of the whole trip.. and he didnt real plan anything for his trip.. just went for it... the downside to that is he missed out on alot of good shops and good gear.. when we talked about his trip and i asked him about some of the better shops, he hadnt even remembered seeing the shops.. ah well.. gave him another reason to go back..

Basjoes is a great place to sit and stare out of the window - the picture of that view brought back a few memories of my last trip gazing blankly toward that bridge. The smoke from here is always very good quality...

Basjoes

Basjoes is where I went on my last night in Amsterdam. Friendly, not noisy. James gave me a hug, and said he would see me next year.

Was there on the last week of January and the construction was still going on. It was the second time I stopped in this place and on both occasions, they made me feel very welcome and at ease. Will definitely be stopping at this place again for my summer trip.

Don't know if they used to sell alcohol, but I certainly saw what must have been the non-alcohol version of Amstel in stock there.
BigRigRob

Amstel near beer?

By the way,
Great photos ya'll ( I poked through your photo album philly-rich )    
cheese

hey philly rich..

where did u get those pizza's???
philly-rich

Here is the menu.The pizza was very good.We sampled several different ones.It is pretty far down Haarlemmerdijk,a few blocks from Barneys.You can not eat in there.Afhaalservice means take-away I think.This place was close to my apartment so I went there often.I saw a few people(stoners) get yelled at as they tried to sit at the one table in the place and eat thier pizza.Don't get me wrong the guy working was usually very nice,and after a  couple of visits even helped me with my Dutch ordering skills.The Hawaii Is HIGHLY recommended.
cheese

thats awesome philly! thanks for the help

mrs cheese and i always love a good pizza and have been trying to find a good take away place in amsterdam.

there seems to be alot of nice stuff on haarlemmerstraat and haarlemmerdijk. couldnt say anything bad about most of the places i have visited on both streets.

cheers mate
BigRigRob

It would be south of Nieuwe Markt.Do you need a map?I will P.M one to you.
viper

LOL, TH

thanks for that, actually I'm sitting here with a city map next to me. One of four I have.

That was a great link though.

I noticed that coffee shop Resin wasn't marked though. Is it the site of former Pooldog ?

I am not sure if it is the former pooldog but here is the addy. Resin
Hekelveld 7, Amsterdam

i do believe resin took over pooldog... actually im quite positive it did.

cheers!
Boner

Yep Resin is where the old Pooldog was, I'm pretty sure Soma's daughter and son in law run it, nice goodies as well.

i tried out there ice hash and it was hella expensive.. was nice hash but imo a bit overpriced for the 73u bubble hash

De Vrouw kicked my ass in  scrabble game at Basjoes last night...James IS getting a little grumpy about the construction thing...They appear to be a couple days of bricklaying from completion,BUT...they are planning a six week holiday before doing that much to the neighborhoods chagrin. With July 1 coming quick he'd like his outside seating restored. .Kind of a gameplaying vibe in there yesterday...Chess.Cards ,and  us...Super Pollem was nice purchase.
cheese

here is a pic of basjoes from the water.. this was in february.. you can see alot of construction blocks the wonderful view.
