Bluebirds in the Spring :)

Only went here a couple of times, its just round the corner from The Green Place coffeeshop. The menu is pretty good though its a bit weird, you buy the weed by price, 12.50 if I remember and you get a certain amount of each strain for this price normally around 0.7 to 1.5 grams. Reminds me a bit of how we... Full details

This is probably just one of those things, I don't like coffeeshops to be too dark and close, the music was this prerecorded mix

BIG sofa, large enough for eight to sit on easy, very comfy, but low ceilings, dark lighting and a general air of too-cool-for-school from the patrons, got fairly para after a whileMarijuana menu: Kicking myself that I didn't buy anything from here 'cos apparently the menu's wicked, will investigate next...

Sometimes they play chill DrumNbass but sometimes they play hardrock which is really annoying when you're stoned. A minor point

It's a cool shop. There is a great lether bench and a table with a huge waterpipe in it. There are also seats with view on the street which are really cool.
