I have been going here for years. Definitely the best smoke shop I have been to. Super chill guys who have been working there forever, they are very helpful and friendly. It's kinda hard to describe but this store feels like home. And it smells amazing!

Joshua Steinwald

One of the oldest if not oldest head shops in Ottawa. Bare essentials. A small hydro section in the back. Records and comics as well as 80's-90's counter culture memorabilia. Please never change !

Marlon

Aside from the obvious, they also carry a solid selection of books, comics & records. Staff are always a pleasure.

I'm no longer living in this part of town but it is worth the travel time, 100%!

Jessica Bain

This place has everything. A real cool store with real chill vibes. People that work here know their stuff. Support this store, it's an integral part of the culture.
