Westerstraat 150, Jordaan
Amsterdam is full of great hipster coffee shops, but Headfirst is a standout for a few key reasons. First, the coffee is so good—strong but not bitter, plus they have alternative milks like almond or soy. Their Helmersstraat location shares a space with an adorable interior shop, so you can test out some Scandinavian couches (both new and vintage) while you sip your latte. Bonus: Plenty of WiFi.
Farmers Market on Noordermarkt
Amsterdam's best Saturday farmers market is on the edge of the Jordaan neighborhood in Noordermarkt square. Head here in the morning for fresh, local fare—cheese (of course), mushrooms, fruits and veggies, homemade pastries—to see the flower stalls, and sample some pancakes.
