De Vrienden translates as ‘Friends’, and although it is not a coffee bar like the one made famous in the eponymous US comedy series,the place certainly does have a similar friendly and sociable atmosphere. “We’d like people from all walks of life to feel welcome here,” says its warm 22-year-old owner Kelly Swinkels. With her team, headed by manager Monique Lelieveld, she aims to give all customers the personal care and attention they deserve.
