Buddingh is back!

Of course, Café Buddingh never really went away, but says owner Carlo van Ast: "We are more Buddingh now than ever!" The terrace is in tip-top shape and the interior is even more of an ode to Dordrecht's most famous poet after the reopening. An impressive, more than man-sized photograph of Kees Buddingh' adorns the wall. Next to it, a brief account of his life, written by 'his' biographer Wim Huijser. On the other side is a unique photograph that one of Holland's most famous photojournalists Vincent Mentzel shot of him in a wintery Dordrecht park. For tourists, Café Buddingh is the place to start a day in Dordrecht with a delicious cup of coffee. And to finish off with a snack and a drink on the way back to the station. Locals know where to find this favorite hangout for a business lunch or to catch up with friends. Café Buddingh is back in full swing!

Trendy Lady's been trending for 12.5 years

When Yvonne Teeuw started her boutique on Vriesestraat 12.5 years ago, it was a crisis. "And now we have the corona crisis." Fortunately, the welcoming and creative owner of the women's fashion store can still smile about it. But how is it that her business is growing - Yvonne once started at fairs - while others are falling over by the bushes? "By staying who I am. Always up to date with the latest affordable fashion must haves, shoes and accessories for women aged 14 to 90. Besides, I make sure it's cozy. It's like a living room here: cup of coffee and a bite to eat. I have built up a good relationship with many regular customers over the years. It was once my grandfather's dream that his (grand)daughters would have their own business. I am proud that this has succeeded. By the way, I owe this in part to my mother, partner and children who are always there to provide back up. It's not easy now, but in 12.5 years I hope to still be here, who knows, together with my daughters in the business."

Bubble up your T at The T Bar

Recently, the first branch of The T Bar opened its doors in the Drievriendenhof. The initiators were missing a nice place for tasty drinks in the center. A place where you can sit and easily take to go. They chose their own favorite drinks: bubble tea in all colors and more than thirty flavors and milkshakes made from candy bars. And then in surprising flavors, new mixes and tasty toppings for the finishing touch. In Asian countries bubble tea is a popular drink, but it is also becoming increasingly popular in the Netherlands. This is evident from the many positive reactions and enthusiasm that overwhelmed The T Bar. It is going extremely well and the location is also very nice. Many passers-by pass by every day who crave something tasty while shopping.
