 FORCED TO CLOSE BEFORE 1 JULY 2014, FOR CLOSE DISTANCE TO AMSTERDAM SCHOOL.

Great coffeeshop in the heart of Amsterdam. Excellent menu. 

After avoiding the possibility of closure in 2009, this CLASSIC coffeeshop still had one of the best menu's in town. Great sunny terrace in the city center.

 

 

Sadly, Homegrown was forced to closed...it will be greatly missed by locals and tourists alike...

 

 

This profile page will remain online for you to say your goodbyes, and to share your stories and pictures of this great shop, which will always stay in Amsterdam's coffeeshop history, and our hearts.

One of the best shops for hanging out in an chilled atmosphere.

The atmosphere of this shop is very unique because there are nearly no tourists. CHECK OUT THE TOILET!Marijuana menu: The menu is not very big, but the weed and the hash you can get have best quality. I really liked the Super Silver Haze and the Caramello.Service & staff: The staff is very friendly and... Full details

Good music, Bomba joints good for price, those little chocolates given with coffee is nice treat.

Best decor in AMS, top layout of seating and even the coasters work with the setting. Bar is great style and the sound of coffee being made / espresso I think / is great.Marijuana menu: Top Shelf, only greenhouse and Barney's is more quality. OMG the Cheese! And the Crystal is excellent. Always have... Full details

Sometimes great, sometimes not

A friendly coffeeshop with a clean and open design, with some nice artwork and designs. Relaxed coffeeshop atmosphere.Marijuana menu: Not the biggest menu but generally quite good. The best I've had is their Homegrown Cheese. Like many coffeeshops it can be "hit or miss" depending on the batch. Generally... Full details

It resembled that smell you get after you have been walking in the forest all day and after returning home you find little bits

Nothing particularly special about the inside, just a chill place to relax and have a smoke. Marijuana menu: I had the Genie in a Bottle. This was not an impressive looking strain with nothing more than a bunch of orange hairs. But as I was breaking it up there was a very strong scent waiting to punch me... Full details

I had previously thought this shop was great, but this past weekend was a huge let down.

Did not enjoy the vibe this year, last year was better. Shitty music!Marijuana menu: Varied menu, although the cheese i bought hadn't been flushed correctly and was full of chemicals and didn't burn properly. Huge disappointmentService & staff: Efficient service, nice cup of tea.Summary : I had... Full details

Not the most comfortable seating in the world but then again, this isn't an overly long stay coffeeshop by design or feel

A good vibe and clean enough inside. Not too dark and dingy by any stretch of the imagination. The staff were very friendly and filled me a bag from the Volcano with pleasure. Toilets worth a look if you are tripping!Marijuana menu: Didn't really buy much from here to be entirely honest. We were well stocked... Full details

This place is a sentimental favorite for me since it was one of the first places I checked out on my first trip to the 'dam

Relaxed but can get crowded at times. Ya gotta check out the bathroom...Marijuana menu: The Super Crystal was the only thing I had on my last trip and it made me kind of jumpy. Admittedly though, I was a bit out of shape ;).Service & staff: Always great, which is one of the reasons I go back when in... Full details

When my wife and I come to Amsterdam, we've made it a tradition to drop everything off at the hotel and come to Homegrown Fantas

I really like the lay out of this place-colorful but relaxing. Nice art on the walls. It is also quite roomy for a coffee shop-have never had problems finding a table.Marijuana menu: The menu here isn't that big, but the quality of their marijuana has never disappointed me. In fact, my wife and I usually... Full details
