If you want to enjoy vibrant Amsterdam, visit Haarlemmerstraat/dijk. Since years I start my saturdaymorning here with a nice latte from the CoffeeCompany or tramezzino's. You'll find wonderful bread at the Vlaamsch Broodhuys or new titles at the kookboekhandel. After renovation of this long street it has improved a lot . One way or another there are many foodshops. Together they organize again this year the New Food Fair. The event takes place this saturday the first of september from 10 am till 6 pm.
