"Grasshoppers... Wetherspoons in disguise?" The Grasshopper Coffeeshops Tip by Bushman23

One of the things we were warned about when we first arrived in Amsterdam was the Grasshopper Bars/Cafes... Supposedly catering specifically for British and American tourists (of which there are thousands, so why not?), its was labelled as very commercial. So we went to have a look...
At the end of the day, its not actually such a bad place, but it was quite commercial. Bar upstairs, coffee shop downstairs, reasonably priced... if you in Amsterdam, you may as well go, and make up your own mind.

Unique Suggestions: Don't go late. during the day its only half full (at least when we were there...

Fun Alternatives: Any other coffee shop or bar... they all sell the same thing!
