Looking for the 5 best coffeeshops in Enschede, Overijssel? You are at the right place!

Enschede is located in the region Twente. There are rules about how many coffeeshops can be in in this region. In general, there should be one coffeeshop for every 15,000 to 20,000 people. But every town must have at least two coffeeshops, so no single shop has too much control. Bigger towns might have more coffeeshops because they serve more people from surrounding areas.

Coffeeshop Tunderbird

Address: Wilhelminastraat 3, Enschede
Reviews Google: 4.5/5
Are tourists allowed in coffeeshop Thunderbird: Yes, tourists are allowed
Smoking area: No

Coffeeshop Thunderbird is located as well in the center city of Enschede. This coffeeshop doesn’t have a smoking area, which makes it only suitable for buying weed. But still, this will be one of the best places to go in the city when you only want to buy something.

The quality is great at Thunderbird. For cannabis they have a couple of different indica- and sativa strains, as well as some hybrid weed. Last time we’ve been here they even offered several strains from California, which you don’t come across often.

Also for hash you are at the right place, but the offer is less extensive with just a couple of sorts to pick from.

 

Coffeeshop Café Mix

Address: Haverstraatpassage 44-46, Enschede
Reviews Google: 4.6/5
Are tourists allowed in coffeeshop Café Mix: Yes, tourists are allowed
Smoking area: Yes

Just a walk of a minute or two from Thunderbird, you can visit Café Mix. They won some awards in 2014 and 2017 for being the best coffeeshop in Twente, so it can’t miss on our list!

The atmosphere at Café Mix is different than your usual coffeeshop. You can sit both inside and outside, very similar to a normal café. The name Mix comes from the fact that the customers and employees come from all over the world, with a mix of different cultures. Everybody is welcome at their coffeeshop, and you can feel this in the overall experience.

They do offer a pretty good weed menu as well, so for just take-away it is also a suitable place. But the real beauty of Café Mix is to hang out and relax, while playing some of the games they have available.

Coffeeshop Gabriela

Address: Haaksbergerstraat 126-d, Enschede
Reviews Google: 3.8/5
Are tourists allowed in coffeeshop Gabriela: Yes, tourists are allowed
Smoking area: No

A bit further outside the city, next to the hospital, you can visit coffeeshop Gabriela. While they don’t have a smoking area, it is still a pretty good place to buy cannabis.

They do not offer a lot of different strains but are mainly known for the haze they sell. Always great and consistent quality for a fair price.

Another pro is that this coffeeshop is relatively easy to reach by car compared to the previously discussed places, as it is located a bit outside the center city.

 

Grasshopper Coffeeshop

Address: Gronausestraat 1208, Enschede
Reviews Google: 4.2/5
Are tourists allowed in Grasshopper coffeeshop: Yes, tourists are allowed
Smoking area: Yes

Last but not least: Grasshopper coffeeshop. As this place is located near the border it will mainly be interesting for our German stoners. Especially the lounge makes Grasshopper one of the best coffeeshops of Enschede. There is plenty of room to hang out, do some games like pooling or darts and even use their PlayStation.

For near the border Grasshopper is most likely your best choice to buy cannabis as well. Overall offering a consistent quality at fair prices. We did read some reviews about bad pre-rolls, another reason to learn how to roll a joint yourself 😉
