We stopped here for breakfast. The cafe is on a pedestrian only area. We had no trouble finding parking close by. We both had scrambled eggs on toast. I also had a reasonable flat white. The cafe was very busy and dog friendly.

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
