Caf�s and coffeeshops

Het Ballonnetje
Juices, milkshakes, 30 kinds of tea, homemade soup, and light meals make the "Coffeeshop Balloon" a good bet for the chamomile-and-ginseng crowd.

"Real food" (including sushi on Saturday) is a high point at Bluebird, which has been catering to university students, professors, artists, and tourists since 1982.

The Bulldog
In addition to The Bulldog Mack and The Bulldog Palace caf�s, The Bulldog Company's properties include a hotel and coffeeshops for cannabis fans.
