Very tasty and crunchy smoked sausage. It's a supermarket so you can see a long queue for the sausage. They also sell other pastries which is good too.

When I go visit family abroad, I always buy very Dutch items at Hema. Always "stroopwafels", licorice. And this store is also great to have a quick lunch too.

It's not quite big but it has a little bit of everything, from toothpaste to curtains! Imagine a small Target but even better! I loved!!

One of the bargain tips we've picked up during our Amsterdam research is probably the most economical breakfast in town - at the department store Hema it's possible to buy a baguette with an omelette and bacon, with a croissant and jam and a coffee...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
