The Bulldog is a company that owns several coffee shops, cafes, and even a hotel in Amsterdam. Located in the red light district, this is their first location. And I did not know until I was brought here that this was actually the first coffee shop in the city. The place is not too big and was very crowded when I was there. The place looks very cool with the outside covered in graffiti and is worth a look, even if it is very touristy.

The fact that is the first ever coffe shop in the world should be a reason enough to decide to spend at least a few hours there.
Amazing interior, exterior even better. Coffe was amazing, staff very nice and helpfull (especially when it comes to recommandations which sort to buy).
It's in the center, so you can easily walk there.
If u heaven't been here, you heaven't been in Amsterdam.

Lovely fresh mint tea and right in the centre of everything! Quick service too. Only problem we had was with the pre rolls was some weren’t done tight enough so you’d get a mouthful of herbal mix when smoking, but wasn’t too bad! Would still

Historic first coffee shop to open in Amsterdam. Very busy inside but has few tables outside along the canals where you can smoke and enjoy the view.
Nice hot drinks.

İt is okay. İ have mixed feelings about this place actually. And İ don't know how to put my feelings into words. However, joints were nice, but pricey. Be careful.
Sarah Alawadhi - 4 months ago
I’ve been there 3 times and I love their drinks and all. But, the last time it was crowded so i just grabbed one of the chairs in the counter to sit and the staff told me that I’m not allowed to sit here! I told him ok and I took another chair in another corner , and another one told me you can’t sit here! So I was like why you are putting chairs in the counter while you don’t want anyone to sit here!

No time for customers to advise, the waiter was rude because it took me a bit longer to decide what I take instead of explaining me anything and to help me decide quicker. Young tourist going there, they have people to check Ids beautiful cause the persons going there are so young! not recommended!

The first place we went when we arrived. To be able to sit and smoke in the same place a lot of celebs have. We were like big kids. Lovely coffee, definitely try there ice coffee it is amazing. You can sit inside or out. Down stairs for the goodies though.

Typical place. Supposed to be the first as they claim. Music is nice and positive. Location is easy and accessible. Drinks are a bit pricy but that’s expected. Crowd is chill. Staff are nice. Coffee is really nice. Would visit again if I’m in town.

The place was quite beautiful. In addition, the employees are both very funny and smiling. Service was also pretty fast. I can say that the prices are reasonable by Amsterdam standards. However, after a certain time, they don’t serve the alcohol-free and hot drinks. I think this is very wrong. Other than that everything was pretty good.

Probably the best Coffeeshop near Amsterdam Centraal area. Claimed to be the first coffeeshop in Amsterdam, the place lives up to its name. Small sitting area, but if you are lucky, you can find a spot and spend hours getting high. The joint purchasing counter is downstairs, accessible via a small curved staircase. The variety and quality is unbeatable. A must visit destination for all tourists.
Iulian Boicu (Banhammer) - 1 year ago
You are not allowed to take pictures inside and that is totally normal. Place is spacious with lots of sitting room, you can bring your own weed and do try their hot chocolate with waffles.

Yes, well, ummmmm......classic and original Amsterdam 'coffee' shop with strong smokes. An Amsterdam institution, so a visit was in order, but I personally find these weed coffee shops a bit too 'pub-like', although always quieter and more laid-back than any place serving evil alcohol. There are quite a few Bulldogs strewn around Amsterdam but this is the original. Worth a visit.

If you want something light and nice, go for yellow haze. A third of a blunt will do, they pack you like you're a daily smoker or something

If your in Amsterdam for the first time and are here to explore the herb history, then you have to check out the Bulldog. Known worldwide, they serve food, drink and merchandise as well as other essentials! The herb isn’t the greatest so buy elsewhere at somewhere like the plug, greenhouse or voyagers and indulge here

WARNING: The Bulldog Coffeeshop is selling Space Cakes without any effect! I bought 3 times at their shops and 3 times no effects with the muffins. I eat 2 muffins last time with no effect! Don't buy Space Cakes from The Bulldog and don't support this brand because of this fraud. There are a lot of other coffee shops in Amsterdam you can support and get muffins and space cakes with an effect!

If you are thinking about visiting any coffee shop in Amsterdam, there is something unique about this one! Not just a fact that it’s a first coffee shop in the history, but it still keeps very calm & nice energy (even if you are bot going to try their “coffee”
valdy534LP - 1 year ago
The bald guy with glasses downstairs was extremely rude. Didn’t say a word while I was ordering and kept eating some kind of sweet bun in the middle of me ordering. I asked for directions and he just rolled his eyes and pointed.
The upstairs staff however were super nice and very helpful. Left them a nice tip afterwards but that rude person really ruins the whole experience, if you don’t like dealing with people than maybe it’s not the best idea to work in one of the most frequented coffe shops.
Shane Moseley - 1 year ago
There is deep rich history as you enter then doors of the FIRST coffee shop in Amsterdam that was brave enough to operate and allow smokers to visit the basement! The various displays show information on times past and the upstairs coffee is absolutely delicious!!! Duck your head below the atarircase ceiling and climb downstairs and enjoy a fresh smoke!!! There is various mementos for sale throughout the store and the atmosphere is fantastic!!!
I would like to visit the other locations around the world sometime!

The rudeness of the bald old man with glasses at the cash desk does not go unnoticed. The coffee shop is mainly frequented by tourists. There are many others less known but more comfortable.
Erika Babnytė - 1 year ago
Good vibe, chilled atmosphere, but I wouldn't say employers were very eager to help with choosing or advising in general. Otherwise it's worth to take a look on the walls, there are many historical and very interesting items hanging
Guillermo Balboa - 1 year ago
Extremely rude staff. They were extremely disrespectful to my mother, who was eager to try one of their edibles as she was a first time user. The staff uses dutch directness as an excuse for blunt rudeness.
They only wanted to rush them along the purchase. Zero patience, zero empathy, zero customer centric attitude, even for the already low dutch service standards.
There are many more friendlier coffeeshops around. Don't waste your money here.
Humberto Sauri Brown - 1 year ago
The first coffeeshop in Amsterdam, and the world. I didn't tried their "coffee", but being there grabbing a drink (non-alcoholic) and having a good time is recommended. The music and the whole vibe of the place is amazing.
Giu - 1 year ago
I went there three times and it was always a good experience. There friendly and the bouncers are always funny. I felt welcomed as a solo female traveler. The edibles are yummy and definitely make you feel good. The sativa will give you the best high. They give you 4 prerolleds for like 14 € and half was enough for me and other light weights. But please don’t go there for your first high and expect anything majorly. Nonetheless the muffins are nice for beginners
Helen Bui - 1 year ago
Best cafe by the canal. It has an amazing vibe with smiley and friendly members of staff. We came here twice, once to pick up and another to sit in to hang out with some sweets and drinks.
I would highly recommend as you’ll have a great time!
Archo - 1 year ago
It had a really nice atmosphere and design but, a lady behind the bar almost turned on all the tourist, verbally abusing them, being unnecessarily rude to them. She shouted out someone’s order and then followed up with “if you think I’m bringing it over, think again”
So out of interest, I looked up the Bulldog’s reviews and she is mentioned multiple for being bad staff! She was horrible and has stained my image of a lovely coffee. I will not be going back and I’ll be making sure to tell people about my experience before they go.
The Bulldog, go it you want to be made uncomfortable!

Cozy coffee shop if u r lucky enough to find a table inside. Good quality weed. A "must go" if u r visiting Amsterdam.
podi - 2 years ago
Visited this shop while being in transit. The lady at the bar was sooooo rude for no identified reasons. It was insane.
1) We got in the bar, were barely said hello bu told straight away to sit immediately and stay at our table. I was specifically told to only consult the menu at my table, not at the bar, eventhough orders were possible at the bar (we saw it). We did not say anything but thought it was strange.
2) We asked for a long black coffee- were told its not available so we asked for additional hot water if it was possible and were almost scold because it would be charged extra - double the price actually- fine with us, we said. We still did not say anything.
3) Asked for a glass of water: response: not available, only in a bottle - fine with us - at that point, she did not let us finish our order, turned back upset and brought back an already open water bottle - my boyfriend tasted it and advised not to drink it because the taste was off - we suspect she might have put something in it.
I dont understand why some people feel they can be mean and nasty to people, just because they feel like it. Its crazy.

Low quality products.
Tourist trap and the mostly rude staff.
There are many other coffee shops in Amsterdam that offer better products, friendly staff and fair price.
Conan Scholl - 2 years ago
A classic, but often crowded due to its great location.
On our last visit, the music was annoyingly loud, which was a bit of a shame.
Otherwise, you are served here friendly and the staff is happy to give professional information.
Certainly a tourist magnet, which one can visit.
But there are also other great places in the city.

Wow. Every day you will come the shop is full of people. But where you are. The service always handled it with respect and knowledge. Wait 5 minute and you got more that you expected. Really good shop over years. And thanks for the girl of the bar for coffee and cleaning skills ✊

This particular Bulldog cafe didn't feel hospitable enough with that lady bully walking around. I think the place and remaining staff around are chill, but never got so mistreated in Netherlands in my 2 years as this waitress. Give her a smoke and ask her to peace the f out please.
Krisztián Kreiner - 2 years ago
Very old place. Upstairs the coffee downstairs "the shop" unfortunately on the already rolled "cigarettes" do not have any details about the ingredients. Some of them have tabac in it but it is not palpably marked. Both the coffee and the shop are on good level of price and quality.

This chain of coffee shops are one of the best in Amsterdam it's ideal for tourists, a lot of locals visit these coffee shops and there are few dotted about all over. They have different styles and different types of music and the one in the red light area was the very first coffee shop to open in Amsterdam.
S. Parmar - 3 years ago
Absolutely disgraceful behaviour from the old guy at the serving counter who many have encountered but even his negative behaviour doesn't affect custom (maybe via the substances they have short term memory loss). I went for a pre-rolled and guess what I didn't smoke any cannabis at all. I reckon he must pack them. If they want better customer relations he needs to be removed. Also Holland as a tourist board should look into this as he clearly affects the way people will see their trip to the country unlike other friendly citizens.

Toilets were absolutely disgusting. The bartender was nice but slow. Food was overpriced. I'd definitely suggest to go for Bulldog palace instead. It's not as small.

If you want to try cannabis or never try it the first time. Just go here and you’ll totally get sorted.
From strains to types and edibles.
Just a 5 star hotel for cannabis users.
They even have a hall of fame collage of many stars. Just to show you they know their stuff.

Great music selection, cosy atmosphere, although I would not suggest to go here during busy hours. try the milkshake(it is truly amazing)! Prices are lower than I expected considering the fame of the place but definitely not the cheapest.
Michael Asheroff - 4 years ago
Very interesting visit. The places is a bit touristy because of it's location but the people watching made up for it. Prices were higher than you would find outside of the area but not outrageous. Drinks were not cheap but very large and well done. Other high quality products are readily available. Would recommend this one
Jack Winstone - 4 years ago
Very interesting spot with a bar serving some decent cold beer. There basement also has some reasonable offerings. Only downside is it can be very cramped when busy. The staff are freindly and it is an Iconic spot all round.
Sagar Patel - 4 years ago
One of many chilled coffee shops in Amsterdam. Warm, cosy environment to be with your mates. It can be quite cramped but you’ll have to go at the right time. The place has a lot of history behind it, you’d only have to look at the lamp papers to see. I would highly recommend going here.
Devarshi Choudhury - 4 years ago
Cool-ass vibes with a chill atmosphere and tripped-out music, this place is among the best if looking to smoke up indoors and getting higher than ever before. The quality of dope is sky-high and the menu is catered perfectly for them munchies. A bit pricey, but given it's location and services, it's worth it
Stefan Mitik - 4 years ago
The first and most popular coffeshop in Amsterdam. After the colorful images on the wall, you get easily attracted by the smell. Decent prices and nice staff. They offer food and beverages which are not so expensive. You can stay there for a long period of time. When it's sunny, they open up a terrace to sit outside. It is located right in the center of the city, opposite the Red Light District, so it's easily accessible by tourists. My friend goes there everytime he is in Amsterdam.

Love the atmosphere of this place, small and cosy. Hard to find a place to sit at times but always have good music on and really nice staff. Could spend forever looking at all the photos of celebrities who have visited. First coffeeshop in Amsterdam so I would definitely recommend visiting this place on your trip. Leave a note on a rolling paper on the ceiling!
Oana Maria Simtion - 4 years ago
The design catches your attention, right after the smell. Friendly staff, good quality, decent prices. There's a nice stop outside if you want to relax. Also there is a boat station right outside, if you are waiting for a ride, this place is a good resting spot.

The Bulldog is a Nice place in “De Wallen” heart of Amsterdam. Try go little bit early. After 20:00, you can not even move inside The Bulldog and also forgot to order something during next 20min. Actually here also coming very famous people. Sometimes they are also checking your pass to know you age. But i think i saw here also many young people

Matthew R - 7 years ago
Place was pretty packed when we got there, definitely not a chill atmosphere but not terrible either. We walked downstairs and grabbed a 4 pack of white widow reefers. They were well put together and had filters. I just took one or two hits as I don't smoke and was definitely feeling it. My girlfriend said she felt like she was 17 again and smoking for the first time. There are a lot of coffee shops in Amsterdam, perhaps some better and less expensive, but there's nothing wrong with the product here.

Full of tourists and unfriendly bouncers, but the place is still nice. I must say that surprisingly, the space cakes are really good at bulldogs.
Iain. Gibson - 8 years ago
Same as most of the other reviews... As a coffee shop it is a tragedy and the staff are mostly unfriendly.. The downstairs area seems to be where the happier staff are and the cannabis menu is good and well priced. Premises are way too small and the poor lay out means if there is more than 6 people in the queue the stairs and seating area are blocked off..
