I wanted to write this comment to thank one of the staff members. Indeed I had the bad experience of losing consciousness after smoking, not being a regular user. The staff member reacted instantly in the best way by making me regain consciousness and by bringing me a sugar and caffeine bar to make me feel better. I recommend this coffee shop which knows perfectly how to intervene in these delicate moments.

This coffeeshop is amazing. I have been to Amsterdam several times and it was my first time (several times in fact) in Rookies. I find the smattering of bad reviews on here incredibly hard to believe. We came every day, both in the early afternoon and the evening and the staff were very polite, friendly and attentive. Good selection of weed and the cappuccinos were delicious. The place has a very chill vibe with comfy seats, nice atmosphere and great music at just the right volume. This will be my "go to" place for future visits and I will recommend it to all my friends as well. Thanks for the good times.

Your service are the best. Very calm friendly and polite. Hot mint tea so fresh so goooood, We love you.

Karen Cantrell - 2 months ago

If you're going to Amsterdam, and coffee shops are on your bucket list, you HAVE to go to this one. It's got a great energy and really wonderful atmosphere. I went to end my night pretty much every day I was there. That's how good it was! Genuinely felt like a neighborhood joint (lol), if I lived there I'd probably go every day. The fresh OJ is bangin' and so is the bud.

Amazing coffeeshop: ample space (which is a rare thing in Amsterdam), warm and inviting seats, and fantastic service. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful, and they do table service for the drinks! They use hemp instead of tobacco on their products

Candice Panthera - 3 months ago

We enjoyed our first coffee shop, Rookies, more than the following two. Staff were helpful and supportive in that we were brand new to the country. Best part is a complete ban on tobacco smoking indoors. They offer you free hemp leaf alternative to roll with on the tables.

Landed last night at 9:30, was in my hotel by 11 and in this coffee shop rolling one by 11:30… this was my first ever coffeeshop experience. The staff were friendly and helpful. The smoke was good, price was decent. I’m definitely going to return!!!

Amish Patel - 10 months ago

This is one of my favourite coffee shops in amsterdam

Alessandro Merelli - 10 months ago

The first Coffeeshop I visited in my first to trip in Amsterdam and my favourite ever since. There you can find an informal place where you can enjoy fine weed, soft drinks and some food. Don't miss it!

Chirag M - 11 months ago

Camila Fernandes de Souza - 11 months ago

Stayed in Amsterdam 4 days and went to The Rookies every day, best coffee shop in the city! Not too far from the city centre, great atmosphere and incredible staff, great variety of things to smoke and drink, if I'm ever in Amsterdam again, I will definitely be there again!

Great shop close to Rembrandt square, lovely staff and clean space. Speedy table service too. Would come back again

Brandon Thompson - 1 year ago

A very chill atmosphere to enjoy a joint and a cup of espresso, brewed perfectly not bitter at all. Leo was very friendly and helpful. Needless to say I will be heading back very soon.

JACK HESS - 1 year ago

Ok selection. The employee I dealt with wasn't friendly and was of very little help. He seemed like he didn't want to be there. There are much better coffeeshops in Amsterdam.

Mick - 1 year ago

Both Leo and Micky were awesome, fantastic coffee and service. I'd absolutely go back again.

Al wee - 1 year ago

Great atmosphere. Nice list if available drinks hot and cold. Great choice of flowers and hash as well as flower and hash pre-rolls.

chewy_rc - 1 year ago

Well worth a visit, really cool guy behind the bar and great coffee and the weed is good too. Highly recommend!

X X - 1 year ago

You can spend nearly €200 on weed here but don’t expect to sit down and enjoy it at rookies unless you’re also going to buy 2 beverages. Not thirsty? Then according to the manager, you’re not welcome here and get out. You’re better off spending your money where your business is appreciated.

Bliss Vision - 1 year ago

The first to walk in and the last to walk out :) Great place. Good vibes. Very clean and fresh. Nice music playlist, rich selection of warm drinks (ginger tea, hot chocolate, chai latter etc… ) Highly recommended

R M - 1 year ago

Nice place to sit down and smoke a bit. The only down side is the lack of vegan options when it comes to drinks (but they have a nice ginger and mint tea, I would definitely order this again). The staff is attentive and friendly, mostly. Had a nice time there.

Sandro Barnà - 1 year ago

Bayloz - 1 year ago

Very nice place to drink a coffee while smoking. They are cool with strangers. The only thing that I foun bad was the choice of prerolled joints. If your tired to roll buy your joints somewhere else. Toilets were very clean !

Olena Yatskiv - 1 year ago

Nothing to add here - just cool place with awesome people

Henriette Thiele - 1 year ago

One of the best coffee shops we went to. Try the blueberry muffin it’s great

Nice place, really clean and laid out well for social distancing. Nice weed too. The lady working at the drinks part was really friendly, sadly don’t know her name. She asked us how to spell something at one point

Anthony - 3 years ago

Nice little place a stones throw from museum district... Nice selection of green and hash... Would definitely visit again on my next trip... Quite alot of seating aswell which is a bonus.... Because its not in the main section of cafes its not as busy as the others

Harry-Dean Corfield - 3 years ago

Great selection of products and plenty of cozey seating. Very welcoming vibe where you can get lost for hours. If you’re looking for somewhere warm and inviting this is the place for you! Friendly waiters will serve you at the table for drinks. For weed head up to the front counter where they have everything from Bud to Skins. Great hot choc Fairly priced too!

Gray Family Scotland - 3 years ago

Best coffeshop in Amsterdam without a shadow of a doubt. Would love to see the menu change next time. but regardless you can't fault this place. After the renovation its amazing

Jack Perry - 3 years ago

My favourite coffeeshop out of the 8 or 9 I've been to. The weed is great, staff are sound and the atmosphere is good. I'd 100% recommend this place. Plenty of nice restaurants near too for when you get the munchies.

Scott Crawshaw - 3 years ago

Comfy seating. Decent weed menu.cold and hot drinks. Pineapple express was

Wildwood Dryad - 3 years ago

Excellent products and service, with detailed descriptions of their wide range - helpful for the neophyte - also great hot chocolate and cream. Prices were quite reasonable, especially considering the quality offered. I really enjoyed my visit, and returned several times, as I found it was better than other coffeeshops in the area. Table service for drinks was fast and friendly. It's often quite packed at peak times but you can usually get a seat, and some people don't stay long, so not too hard to get a table. Recommend!

Juana Martinez - 3 years ago

This is the best place in Amsterdam!!! They have the best iced coffee, they recommend you the best for you and not the most expensive ones! And even the most “expensive” it’s a really good price comparing to the rest of coffe shops! And of course they have a really good quality of weed! you can have a great time at this place! I mean it! I never let reviews but this place made me! :)

Luk Tszkwan - 3 years ago

Definitely love this place

Oly Edwards - 3 years ago

A great coffeeshop for any time of the day. The staff are always friendly and welcoming, and the products rarely disappoint. They've refurbished over the last year or so, and the new decor looks great. They've also expanded their menu. A trip to Amsterdam is never quite complete without dropping into The Rookies for some Amnesia Haze.

Michael Cummings - 3 years ago

Hand down the best coffee shop in Amsterdam. The staff are very friendly and the atmosphere is great. The music was also perfect. The free chocolate was huge. I’d grab a handful and the lady behind the counter would say ‘go ahead and take the whole bowl!’ The Rookies is far by far better than the bulldog coffee shops. If you’re in Amsterdam, make sure to check this place out.

Abby Williams - 4 years ago

Very surprised by the good reviews. Asked for a recommendation and the staff had 0 patience even though there was no one else waiting to be served. Another guy wondering around constantly pestering you to buy drinks. Also saw they were rude to others. The one nice guy even said “oh he’d usually would have lost all his patience by now”

fairy opi - 4 years ago

Really nice place, cool decor and the staff are so lovely. Prices for weed is slightly higher than some but there's a good range. On a quieter steer, fake tobacco stuff provided. Highly recommended

Amir Luzon - 4 years ago

I'm a long time customer for 3 years so I have seen the place going through changes. We go there usually once a week to hang out. Weed: pricy but they have good quality. Everyone knows the Champagne Haze. Really recommended. The place has gone through extensive renovation. It's looks awesome! Lots of space inside and better ventilation. Great for groups! Food: none (except for space cakes) Drinks: wide variety of choices, prices are on the high side. Staff: super friendly, they appreciate their returning customers. I will be back for sure!

Erin Amber Leonard - 4 years ago

Literally my favourite cafe in Amsterdam! Very relaxed environment. The staff are so friendly and happy to go above and beyond to make you comfortable. The prices are fair and the weed is good. The hot chocolate is even better! This was our first port of call every morning. Thanks so much to the team at Rookies for an amazing time, each and every time.

Richard McCavery - 4 years ago

Still my favourite coffeeshop in Amsterdam. Had had quite a slick refit since I last went and for the better. Very nice and clean. Great service and staff.

Rusty Masero - 4 years ago

It's much nicer now they have had a refurb. The service is great and the staff are fabulous. A nice and comfy coffee shop to chill out in. Our favourite.

Betheny C - 4 years ago

Was our main smoking place, prices were good, different strains to try and very lovely environment. I wouldn't ask them too mainly questions because we had a couple of staff members laugh at us.

Walter MERA - 4 years ago

Best coffee shop in town. The Asiatic gentlemen in the counter is the best (I'm sorry I forgot your name) thank you very much for your recommendations. Only cash.

Moe Hos - 4 years ago

One of my favourite shops in the area! Nice mid menu and the place looks like a pub but no alcohol, the staff are nice. Cool hang out and relaxing

Jenn Cliff - 4 years ago

First and last place me and the bf visited in Amsterdam, Aug 2018. They'd just had a redesign and the place looked fantastic. The staff are super friendly and the atmosphere is welcoming and inviting, unlike some other places you may find. Overall, great green and great tea (they do loads of hot and cold drinks). Will visit again when we come back!

debbie ezeogu - 7 years ago

The waitress and the man serving cannabis at the front where very friendly on the 13.04.16 @ 1pm. Nice atmosphere nothing like bulldogs relaxed diffinately will return again next I visit Amsterdam.

Laurent Grima - 7 years ago

Really nice laid back coffee shop. I really loved the soul music there. It's not really suited for large (>5) groups.

niccolo malo - 7 years ago

Really really cool staff, perfect environment to chill. The rooms are quite big and offer lots of seats so you can eazy chill there with a group without worrying about space issues. The music is allways good always

johnwuils - 7 years ago

Wonderful staff. Great selection of strains. Nice clean rooms at the hotel also. Highly recommend.

James Southworth - 7 years ago
