I have been to this place a few times in recent years. Food and service is always excellent. Nice relaxing calm environment and dog friendly too. I especially recommend the eggs benedict.

The Driftwood cafe and bistro is unlike any other on Fore Street. We place great value on quality, presentation and difference. Our food and produce are fresh and locally sourced wherever possible, and everything is prepared and cooked in our kitchen. With a cool look, the Driftwood Cafe is really true to its name
