A lovely little coffee shop with friendly staff. The coffee is moderately priced but excellent quality. A real hidden gem within Barnstaple that has the added bonus of being incredibly dog friendly.

I eat here more and more often and my friend brings her dog (yes they can come in and sit on the furniture too - if you dont like that...dont go!) Food is excellent, plentiful and reasonably priced. This place deserves to be better known.More

These guys are a smaller outfit than Boston Tea Party and the coffee is superior. They have a smaller range of food but the smoked salmon bagel with scrambled egg was delicious. Soft, melting properly made scrambled egg (unlike the usual rubbery variety) and delicious...More

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
