It is a coffee shop so everybody is chill but all the details make the difference for the atmosphere that they create there. Good prices and the employees are good. Go there with friends not with family.

Out of all the coffee shops we strolled into this one. The person at the front was super nice and didn't make us feel awkward at all. We ordered off the menu and proceeded to the next table in the back to get some accessories....More

Cool place to hang out. Fairly small, but nice chilled vibe and cool seats! Bulldog statues also! What more do you want?

Take it or leave it, The Bulldog belongs to the story of the city! It was indeed the first coffee shop ever and it still satisfies the goal of coziness and friendly atmosphere that its creator wanted... regardless of the product that are sold here...More

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some

Never seen it begin sold or advertised so I’m pretty sure the majority of that stuff is illegal, wax, shatter etc. but you could always ask ?

Depends on the type of the cake mate, but usually it doesn't contain nuts. So just ask your vendor before the purchase and you will be fine.
