A nice older gentleman greeted us at the door and welcomed us in. I had high hopes and good vibes. Unfortunately, we had Such a terrible experience here. Our group went in to find if there was room (6 of us) and we were about to go down from the lounge and purchase after settling and arriving moments ago. The female staff member did not take kindly to us from the start (not even a group of Americans). She rudely told us that we had to buy something, of which I immediately smiled and obliged and she still had an awful attitude. A few of us made purchases. About 15 minutes later, she returned to kick us out for absolutely no reason, because we “weren’t buying anything and would we behave this way in our own country?”. She said we were preventing them from making money. She said there were other groups waiting for our spots because we were “taking up all the space”. Offput and very confused, we kindly complied and left… and there were definitely no groups waiting for our spot…. Literally no one. Maybe she was having a bad day, but I’d never had someone behave so ugly. Overall, just a very negative experience which has never happened to me in Amsterdam before now. I hope the owner knows that this employee will lose them money, and she absolutely did. For being in a very touristy area, you’re going to need tolerant and polite employees and we are completely reasonable people…. Prices were reasonable I thought, but when you have so many great options In the area, think twice about going here if you don’t want to be treated poorly. I recommend purchasing & leaving if you associate with the business at all. I will not be returning and will strongly discourage any others from visiting. Edit: I see now there are many reviews about a rude and unwelcoming female employee here, and that hasn’t changed as of this review. Wanted to mention that the music was upbeat and enjoyable for those curious.

Barraka coffeshop is located on Gravenstraat (Grave Street), a small side street near Dam Square. The street is closed to automobiles, though it is heavy in foot traffic given its proximity to key Amsterdam attractions. One end of this street leads to De Nieuwe Kerk. This translates as The New Church. Contrary to its name, this is a famous and old church-turned-museum, concert, and exhibition hall. At the other end of this street is Nieuwendijk (New Dike), a busy section of the city’s most popular shopping district.

This is my most favourite place to be in the world! An absolute gem in the centre of Dam, great atmosphere that is filled with intention and love. The owner was super friendly and attended to us at every given moment. I found myself constantly wanting to be there to soak up the rich culture and soul soothing reggae, all encapsulated in one space. I've officially made it my getaway spot and will be returning at least twice a year. Thank you Hans for making us feel at home!

Great little gem off of Dam square, great food, super friendly staff, and affordable. Not the best bud, but still respectable and the pancakes more than make up for that.

Good location right by dam sq. All the weed smelled the same, like freshly cut grass. When challenged on it the dealer agreed they all smell the same but he doesn’t smoke so he doesn’t know. Didn’t purchase.
