With around 12 cafés spread throughout the Netherlands, there is a place in almost every province for a delicious home-roasted cup of Douwe Egberts coffee. In the spacious and modernly designed coffee cafés of DE, one can enjoy an extensive breakfast from 08.00 hrs. and a delicious lunch in the afternoon. And of course all this with a cup of coffee.
THE cosiest living room in the Netherlands
Fun bit of history... While on holiday in New York, where he came across coffee shops on every street corner, Patrick van Erven got the idea to start his own coffee café. Five years later, his idea became a reality. Together with his father, he opened the doors of the Douwe Egberts Café in Leeuwarden on the corner of Doelesteeg and Ruiterskwartier in the summer of 2011. Since then, coffee has been the order of the day. You come to Douwe Egberts Cafés because you want to enjoy the best coffee, in whatever form, in the cosiest living room in the Netherlands! And that people feel at home is evident from the fact that Patrick sees everyone passing by; From walking sticks to prams and from textbooks to laptops: "It all comes here!"
Safe and warm
If Corona causes the catering industry in the Netherlands to close down, Patrick chooses to invest in a heated terrace. Sit & Heat was the solution they were looking for. This way, they could still receive guests in a safe and warm way. The cushions have proved such a success that they have not been confined to Leeuwarden alone. Groningen, Zwolle and Enschede have followed. The heated seat cushions with DE logo are on more than 200 chairs at these locations and the next plans are already being prepared. A partnership that makes us warm!
