This is my 1st stop when arriving from the state's... Quant and relaxing. Not all the glitz and glam which is perfect for a mellow chill spot. And the music is fantastic along with the menu choices

This is THE place for your supply. Very friendly. When I used to smoke I was very satisfied with their quality/price. Nowadays I regularly get my supply of edible there and nowhere else.

We had a great time here! Met a couple at our table enjoyed some coffee and a smoke. They have a great selection on the menu as well; as strong or mild as you would like.

Am visiting from California and I’ve been to five other coffee shops in the center of Amsterdam and this place is the absolute best! The Paradox is not pretentious like the other shops this one is chill and pleasant. It goes along way!

Absolutely brilliant service and great atmosphere! Their pound cake is fantastic and very strong. Paradox made my time in Amsterdam so much fun :)

Can't go wrong with the edibles, for sure. Renowned throughout Amsterdam, they're very potent but it's easy to dose correctly. Otherwise, great cheerful atmosphere: someone was playing chess when I just went in! Come everytime I'm here.

Situated in a mainly residential area of the Jordaan, and off the beaten track, so to speak, Paradox Coffeeshop is mostly frequented by locals, although some tourists do make the effort to seek it out mostly due to its reputation as having some of the best edibles in town. The cannabis menu is somewhat limited, but what is on offer is of great consistent quality and more reasonably priced than mainstream establishments.. They also have some of the best pre-rolled joints, with and without tobacco, to be found in Amsterdam. There's a good choice of coffee, teas, milkshakes and great snacks. The atmosphere is very relaxed and cosy with comfortable seating and a nice selection of music making it an ideal place to chill out. Board games are available as well as Volcano vaporisers for the more seasoned smokers. It is a favourite haunt of local artists and regular exhibitions are held here featuring the works of prominent upcoming talent such as Mac Amsterdam whose creativity has taken the city by storm. Friendly staff make you feel at home.

i loved the atmosphere there. very home like place where you can find many locals. staff was okay, everyone seemed very relaxed. it is also situated in a picturesque street. sadly it was crowned so i could not sit and chill here. i bought thai sativa joint with tobacco there but it was really weak, all i could taste and feel was tobacco, so i would recommend you to try something different.

Visited here for the second time. Located in a nice area on a quiet side street near the Westerkerk and Anne Frank house. The staff have been pleasant on both occasions. Struck up a nice conversation with a young couple from Spain and also a young man from Scotland. The chem dawg strain isn't my cup of tea but that's no reflection on the shop. I have tried their space cake twice and like it.

One of the more laid back coffee shops in Amsterdam, probably the best in Jordaan. Great vibe all around

Shame it hadn't lived up to my expectations from friends who had recommended it. Nice people. Seemed like the only thing in the hash was tobacco which they obviously only sell to tourists. wasn't even any weed in the 'joint' so It had no effect. I'm not a frequent smoker but have done so in the past.

Yup, while in Amsterdam you have to take in the local delicacies and I heard this was a pretty decent place so gave it a go. Potent cakes, wrapped and labelled with directions on how to eat, took just over an hour to kick in for me and lasted quite a a while so pleased with my purchase

As people before me said, it might be the best place to get some space cakes, which are tasty and potent. It took me solid 2 hours for them to kick in, the effect was quite noticable, but not too strong, and it lasted quite a few hours. Listen to the guy behind the counter, he can give you great advise if you ask him. The shop itself is more quiet than a lot others, which I loved, so anyone who's into that will find this place great.

Got some space cakes. First day took half and felt something after 2 hrs. Was like a light high. Next day I ate 3/4 of it and got really good. Walked around for 2 hrs and spent the next 2 hrs in my hotel room. Don't get the soft pure joint, you won't feel much of it.

My go to coffeeshop for when I am in the dam. Great prices and just far enough out of town that it isn't overly touristy. Space cake is the best I've had, 1g per cake and the joints are not badly priced. Always a great atmosphere and the staff are very helpful if you have any questions. Number 1 coffee shop to go to.

Very nice staff and atmosphere. Only giving it 4 stars because the space cake didn't get us high at all! They recommended 1 cake for 2 people but it should've been 1 per person. Other than that, it's an amazing place!

If you're looking to go to space eating some edibles, look no further, for you have found the place. This coffee-shop has the most potent edibles you can find in Amsterdam. Cozy place, decent selection of merchandise and a staff that's helpful.

A very chill place to be! Not expensive 2,6g for 15€ of Bio weed, awesome!), very friendy managers, and their fresh mint tea (2€) taste wonderful. Oh and the free wifi works great too. I totally recommend it!

Chilled out local cafe, good food and drinks.

A really cosy shop, with a really relaxed atmosphere, not like some of the shops more geared towards hard stoners. Having said that, with the cakes at 1g (rather than 0.4g which is more common elsewhere) and a Volcano Vaporizer in the corner, this place does take its smoking seriously. Lots of board games to put a different slant on the experience too. Very friendly staff, great atmosphere, especially in the mornings.

Cool cafe in the area. Some room to chill and order something to drink. Fair prices and loads of table board games to play. Good product as well.

Favorite coffeeshop. You can't match the serene atmosphere of this place.
