What can I say? This café offers truly the best home cooked food in the Bay for snacks and lunches without a doubt. All the food here is freshly made and served to a very high standard. Nothing is too much trouble for these guys. All staff are always very efficient accommodating and friendly which to be honest truly helps... More

I often eat here, or just have coffee with friends. The food is all locally sourced, and meals never disappoint. Recommended.

Lovely breakfast that was well cooked at a reasonable price. Willing to substitute different items from the breakfast! Pleasant interior. Only criticism, could smell the cooking oil from the kitchen. Other than that, give it a try!

Visited Driftwood Cafe today for a late lunch with my wife and would recommend it if you find yourself in St Marychurch. Good selection of snacks all freshly made together with a good selection of teas and coffees. Well done girls.

I have been to the cafe on a few occasions, usually afternoon to have Coffey, and toasted tea cakes. A very pleasant place, and very nice staff, always welcoming, and polite. The Coffey is always lovely. Pleasant surroundings, and usually quiet for a brief respite. Definitely my local stop off for sustenance.
