Take the train to Central Station. From there it is about a 5 minute walk to the Haarlemmerstraat/Haarlemmerdijk. It was voted on multiple occasions as the best shopping street in The Netherlands. Just a nice street to walk with quirky stores, great cafes, pubs, and restaurants, and coffeeshops. Is easy to watch your time so you can get back to Central Station to get to the airport in time for your flight.

Thank you so much! Is 2hrs before departure enough time to go through security? We won’t have any check in bags.

Depends where you're going. In general it is advised to be there 2 hours in advance for intra Europe flights and 3 hours in advance for intercontinental flights.

What are your hours from what time to what time? 10 am to 3 pm is a bit different then say 6 pm to 11 pm.
