The New Amsterdam Cafe was established in 2000 in the heart of Vancouver’s “Pot Block”. We never could have imagined the Cafe growing into what it is today, and are proud of every step we’ve come. We have the wonderful customers and friends of the New Amsterdam Cafe, as well as the talented glass artists that fill our walls, to Thank!
There are a few things that we think make the Cafe especially unique in such a booming industry in Vancouver. One of those things is our full service Menu. Not only do we carry delicious baked goods from local bakeries, but we also have a hot and cold meal Menu that includes our classic grilled cheese sandwiches “The Cheech” and “The Chong” and more than 5 flavours of Milkshakes. Vegan or Vegetarian? Even Gluten-Free? We have plenty of options for everyone!
Not only is our food amazing, but our coffee and hot beverages are known for being some of the best in the City! We train each of our employees in the art of Espresso, and make sure each and every cup is perfected. In addition to coffee items, we also carry a wide assortment of tea and fresh and refrigerated Yerba Mate!
Here at the NAC, we’re also very proud of our unique collection of Merchandise. We have over 10 different original Artist designed apparel items in store and online, and are always coming up with new prints to put in the shop. Hats, tank tops, underwear, hoodies, you name it- we have it! Not only that, but we carry custom apparel and glass from local Graffiti Artist SOAK. Each piece we get in store is completely different! So if you’re walking home with a SOAK piece, you’re walking home with something nobody else has. Something we think is very exciting, especially to the avid glass collector.
SOAK isn’t the only artist we carry, though. There’s a lot of local talent in the Greater Vancouver and beyond, and we love being able to display the best glass that BC has to offer.
Above all the fantastic things about the New Amsterdam Cafe Experience, who could forget the incredible art that covers every wall of the NAC? Our Cafe is decorated from floor to ceiling with astonishing paintings featuring imaginative characters as well as recognizable ones like the Scooby Gang! You’ll even find art in the bathroom. Who is the artist behind it all? None other than SOAK! We also have a huge variety of authentic paintings from other Artists hanging on the walls for everyone to enjoy.
Last but absolutely not least, is the Vapor Bar and Lounge. Forgot to bring your own rollies, rigs, or vaporizers? No problem! We have rentable Volcano Vaporizers, dab rigs, and bongs that are on hand for Vapor Bar and Lounge Customers. The New Amsterdam Cafe is the perfect place to bring your friends. It’s also the perfect place to meet new ones! We opted out of individual tables and instead have several longer ones to allow for the true #NACEXPERIENCE of meeting and making friends over a bowl.
If you’re looking for a more private experience, we have that, too! Just head on down to our Blunt Bros. Vapor Lounge for a more secluded, quiet, and exclusive toking environment. We even have table service down stairs, so there’s no need to worry about coming up to the front to make an order.
Whether you love art, culture, or cannabis, the New Amsterdam Cafe has a little something for everyone. Come visit us at 301 West Hastings and see what the New Amsterdam Cafe Experience is all about!
