We visited the Rembrandt Square quite a few times, it's great to just sit there with a coffee, beer and watch the world go by, plenty of bars which serve food as well, tram service will take you there and back easily,

Nice open space to sit for a break while sightseeing. Street performers were aplenty, as were restaurants and cafes. Food here is pricey, and there was a hamburger at one of the restaurants that was questionable...

Located on the easterly side of Rembrandtplein is the relatively new Markt Supermarket, which carries only fairly expensive organic, free range and fair trade products. The produce is nice, but be careful of fruit flies in the fruit. When we buy their fruit our flat is full of those little annoying bugs for days.

Watch people, drink beer and snack on wonderful food - You can do it all here. The people are friendly and it is a great place to enjoy the summer weather! I venture to say that there is a cafe, bar, restaurant or shop for everyone here!
