Dolphin's Coffeeshop may just be the most unique shop in the city! It has the most amazing decor, making you feel like sitting in a real fish tank.

Located just a stumble from Leidseplein, this place has two floors to choose from and very friendly staff.

Try the special Dolphin Space Cupcake, if you can handle it!

Not that friendly

The decor is really freaking cool, but at least a couple of the staff are unfortunately absolute assholes. Incredibly rude, interruptive, unfocused and just overall expressed a wish to be anywhere but there and do anything else in the world but have customers. I was told that the quite large...

Staff are abusive and rude. Avoid at all costs.

Give this place a miss. Staff were rude and abnoxious. They seemed to think they were better than everyone and continually rushed us to buy things and leave. Avoid. Full details

Would recomend avoiding for a stress free coffee shop tour

The staff was rude, they mocked a friend of ours that was trying to explain he left his ID in a bike rental. He is 25 years old. We went in the bike rental and when we got back with his ID they didn't want to let us in the smokin room without the consumption of at least one drink and weed per person. We left... Full details

First time in dam

Cool decor

First impression of the place was very cool but straight after we were stressed by a very stressed and rude Dealer and made our stay not as nice as we had thought it was going to be.. the downstaris chillin area was every smoky and there was no what so ever air ventilation. So we ended up just smoking one... Full details

When you are looking for the coffee shop in between coffeeshops

A nice little place this certainly one of the more unique variations on the coffeeshop and perfectly central ( altough I have walked straight past it several time ) it should be relatively easy to find! The decor makes this place its all underwater themed, a bit dated these days , but artificial coral and... Full details

Very cool

Everyone we know loved this place. The menu isn't the biggest or the best but this place is just so cool. They designed the whole coffeeshop to look like some crazy underwater wonderland. Very, very cool to chill out in when stoned. Full details

You feel like your chillin' underwater with the dolphins but your just at The Dolphins Coffeeshop

Probably one of Amsterdams coolest looking coffeeshops. An underwater, dolphin-themed chillout zone. The dolphin theme extends throughout the whole shop and even the menu.Marijuana menu: Quite a limited menu, but normally fair quality for the price. Their house strain - The White Dolphin, is very like a good... Full details

It is like stepping into a underwater wonderland. It is a very cool shop. They are one of the few shops that I have seen vaporizers at which is a great addition.Marijuana menu: I ordered the White Dolphin. The flavor was exquisite with notes of mint and a certain fruit, which I could not distinguish. It... Full details
