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
