i have been a couple of times and in my experience it seems to be veg/vegan friendly, though i personally only know of a few restaurants/cafes (which were both good). i was wondering if anyone knew of any, maybe that have links to a website or something? thanks :)
i really like amsterdam. there is a good atmosphere there, nice architecture (sp?), art. of course weed too but that isn't my reason for liking amsterdam. i hope to go in the half-term- but the half term begins tommorrow and i still haven't booked a flight...

Almost correct, it is 'dank u wel' :)

Almost everyday I am in Amsterdam..., but I don't like it there... not so quiet there, a lot of tourists, etc.

I live near Amsterdam (Mijdrecht, ever heard of it?), I am also born in Amsterdam and a lot of family is living near or in Amsterdam.
What do you mean with '(sp?)'?

sorry, sp is short for spelling- so 'spelling?'- or 'not sure how to spell it' :)

Thought i'd bump this thread seeing as i'm gonna be there at the weekend.I know my way around quite well and wonder if there are any more shops/cafes/bars that have opened since i was there a few years ago?
Dank voor om het even welke informatie mijn Nederlandse vrienden!

I am travelling through Amsterdam and then onto Maastricht tomorrow, so I will report back next week and let you all know how vegan friendly it is :)

I am happy to report that during my stay in the netherlands I did not starve. ;)

Depends what kind of vegan you are I guess. I am more a raw foodist and I found plenty of fresh veggies to eat, pretty good quality and cheaper than in england. I don't eat cooked fast vegan food, but from what I could see, if that is your thing, then there are places you can buy from.
