Haarlemmerstraat is a little bit more traditional Amsterdam. It has narrow tall houses some bars and cafes but not overly commercialized that is aimed at tourists.

Between Singel & Prinsengracht, this one-way street has lots of independent shops. Nice to wander along and pop into one of the lovely coffee shops too.
