I lived right off this square for three years, and I spent so many lovely afternoon's sitting outside, eating bitterballen and having a drink. When it's sunny out, this place attracts a nice local crowd, and during the festival period (Queen's Day and the music festival in August) there are live music concerts. It's also lovely during Christmas time, as they have a Christmas market and you can see people buying Christmas trees. I loved watching the Dutch but a Christmas tree and then ride home carrying it on their bike! If it's a nice day put, you should stroll through here! It's near everything and a good spot to sit down, have a drink and a snack, and perfect for people watching!

Only go here if you want to meet the "Real Amsterdammer". Authentic, affordable, walking distance to anywhere.

We stopped here for 'Genuine Dutch ice-cream' at a little shop next to the square, which contains the market. We were there on a Saturday afternoon. I don't know what stalls, if any, are there on other days. Even though it was drizzling with rain, it was a nice spot to sit near the canal and people watch. We also bought fresh raspberries from the market and delicious spelt gingerbread cookies. There looked like some nice cheese, wine and flowers on sale too. Lots of cafes nearby. We managed to avoid the red light district with the kids!
