This short itinerary is loveliest on a Saturday afternoon and great for people-watching. Begin on Gerard Doustraat / T: 16, 24 Albert Cuypstraat / for a quick retail fix at this trio of chic stores: #84 Charlie + Mary / charliemary.com / has cute, casj basics, #86 All The Luck In The World / alltheluckintheworld.nl / is filled with pretty homewares, and #94 Anna+ Nina (see Standout Stores) offers up fabulous jewellery and colourful décor. Straight ahead now is the Gerard Douplein, a busy, sunny square that’s packed on summer weekends. Now, choices: to end here, turn left at Eerste van der Helststraat and plop down alfresco at #50 De Wijnbar (see Rest./relaxed), or head straight to find the stellar sandwicherie De Wasserette (see Lunch) at #27 on the next corner. Or for more, take a right onto the other end of Eerste v.d. Helststraat, passing (or braving) the busy Albert Cuypmarket / 020 252 4000 / albertcuypmarket.nl, and two more blocks will lead you to the picnic-perfect Sarphatipark.
