I loved how quiet this street was. Visiting in the idle of the summer season was many not my finest idea. Plenty to do here and not hundreds of people waving their dreaded selfie sticks about. Lovely coffee shops ( I mean real coffee not Amsterdam) serving delicious hot coffee and assortments of cakes. Spent a while here as I... More

Haarlemmerstraat/dijk close to the central station. Combination of food (Sweets, Chocolate, Coffee, Tea, but also restaurants) and unique shops (design, clothing, home, books and more). Some of my favourites: Papabubble (sweets), &Klevering (gifts), Store without a home (design, interior), Concrete Matter (man stuff), Deksels (cooking), 't Zonnetje (coffee) and more.

If you don't like the 9 Streets (cute but completely touristic) and you are looking for a street with "real" shops, the Haarlemmerstraat and -dijk is your destination. You can walk to the Haarlemmerplein with its happy fountain.

A very lovely place to spend a vacation in, calm and relaxing, everything you need is near from shopping to grocery and food.

This is one of my favorite local streets for shopping, snacking, and strolling. Great little shops, bars and restaurants, and a mix of locals and tourists. Walk all the way from Central Station to Haarlemmerplein for the full experience.

One of the coolest streets in Amsterdam, lots of great coffeeshops, if they're you're thing.. Several ethnic cuisine places to eat at, and bars etc... A great place to sit at a bar or restaurant and sit and watch the world go by.

I used to live in the area so it has a lot of nostalgic value for me, but this street has everything from my favorite croissants, to awesome butchers, convenient supermarkets, late-night munchie food, cozy bars, delicious restaurants, and coffeeshops. I can, and often do, spend all day here. Plus the architecture in this part of the city is gorgeous.... More

We drove and walked through Haarlem. The canals were very pretty and worth seeing, but I was disappointed with the old city. It seemed a bit dirty which surprised me. It was less touristy then most places we visited, some streets had shops which catered to people who live there.

We were self-catering and Haarlemmerstraat was our go-to location to buy food and drink. It has a fish monger, butcher, cheese shop and baker, and two supermarkets (albert Heijn and Marqt), as well as cash points, some bars, a creperie etc etc. Made for a very pleasant shopping experience.

I got an apartment for 3 days on this street, and I had everything: it's close to the center and the main canals, there are shopping places, awesome restaurants (be sure to visit the Tibetan restaurant), coffee places, coffee shops (if you're into this kind of visit), bakeries, delis, and what not.
