Food good, View Amazing, it was a 5 because of Natalie our Barista. A beautiful Spirit in a Spiritual Place. Kept her calm always, remembered my order after one visit. Wik hold on to this one if you Can, she is what your Inn is all about.

We were staying at the Wickaninnish Inn and had breakfast at the café on all three days after a walk on the beach. Coffee good and a great view. Breakfast sandwiches were not available on the third day which was disappointing. There is a closet to put wet clothes. Just make to sure it gets turned on if you come in drenched.

Great view and baked good were excellent. Cute place to have a small lunch. Not sure I would go out of my way to eat there if you are not staying at the hotel but if a guest in the hotel, then a must visit. Kids loved the hot chocolate and service was great.

For us, it was so easy to pop in the Driftwood for our breakfast, lunch and hot chocolates fixes. We would either sit at the cafe, very casual, or as takeaways. Great place to sit and relax, take in the view of Chesterman Beach. Perfect spot to start the beachwalk as well.

Well done to the team for managing a busy cafe!

Staff were very friendly and helpful (were waiting to get into the Pointe restaurant), the hot chocolate was delicious and the view (sat outside) was stunning. What more can you ask.
