De 9 Straatjes Specialty
Screaming Beans Coffee Roasters
Hartenstraat 12, De 9 Straatjes
While it’s not especially difficult to get your hands on a solid cup of coffee around these parts, the skilled staff at this teeny café really know their way around an almond milk latté, and coffee snobs will be especially impressed by their stellar pour-over technique. There's a second location in Haarlemmerbuurt.
The Cold Pressed Juicery
Herengracht 245, De 9 Straatjes
The Cold Pressed Juicery has two locations in Amsterdam: One in De 9 Straatges and one on Willemsparkweg near Vondlepark—both smartly situated for grabbing a juice/smoothie in the morning before touring around the city, or during a mid-afternoon pit stop. The juices are cold pressed and organic and largely made from locally grown produce. This is also a good option for a quick lunch (salads, wraps, soups). Another cool thing about The Cold Pressed Juicery is that instead of throwing out juice pulp, they use it to make nut milks and other snacks.
De Kaaskamer van Amsterdam
Runstraat 7, Grachtengordel
Within Amsterdam's picturesque canal-side shopping district, De 9 Straatjes ("The Nine Streets"), you'll find De Kaaskamer van Amsterdam, which has to be one of the world's most wonderful cheese shops. Obviously there's a lot of gouda, much of which is organic, along with ready-made food—homemade salads, sandwiches, and snacks—as well as specialty hams and wines. And should you be so inclined after visiting, they ship to more than 25 countries, including the U.S.
