Great coffee. Great food. Love the cake. Always friendly and helpful as I struggle with one or both of my kids! Also great when I'm trying to get them to eat something and will make up a plate of bits they'll pick at. Also great for grown ups!

The place was welcoming and very dig friendly made even better with the most delicious Brie bacon and cranberry toasted panini (could have had baguette or white or... More

We go into Driftwood regularly and are always greeted like old friends. The food & drink are always tasty & plentiful - especially enjoy the salmon & scrambled eggs on a bagel. Thanks Peter & Katie xx

Two of us were warmly greeted by the friendly staff and owners. Drinks were fresh and amazing and the food was prompt and delicious especially their famous Brie and bacon sandwich which I had as a panini. The smoothies were fresh and delicious and a lovely atmosphere. Would recommend for anything from breakfast to a light bite or even a... More

Description
We are a family run, independent coffee shop in the heart of Barnstaple just off the High Street. Our customers love our coffee and we are proud to keep high barista standards. We prepare and make all our food fresh on the day and all meals are made to order to ensure total freshness. We source local produce where possible, including our bacon, sausages and chicken. We use a local bakery and greengrocers. Try one of our scones (made by us on site) or choose one of our many cake options if you don't feel like a large meal. Driftwood is also well known for its delicious smoothies and milkshakes. We also have fresh fruit and vegetable juices. We have free wifi and off street outdoor seating. Dogs are welcome
