We have many customers who are wheelchair bound and we always do what we can to accommodate them or anyone with buggies, mobility scooters (we often remove chairs, move tables or tub... More

My favourite place for a coffee in Barnstaple, always welcomed, pleasant atmosphere. Choice of beverages always worth asking most options available, not just coffee, popular with tea drinkers. Decent bacon or sausage sandwich anytime of day. Oh and dog friendly.

Staff always welcoming, food great, reasonable prices and "proper" tea and coffee, without the price hike of the high street brands.

Simply the best coffee in Barnstaple. Perfect staff and even better management (Katie), as a family we are made very welcome here, nothing is to much for the staff and it's dog friendly.

Great coffee. Great food. Love the cake. Always friendly and helpful as I struggle with one or both of my kids! Also great when I'm trying to get them to eat something and will make up a plate of bits they'll pick at. Also great for grown ups!

Popped into Barnstaple with our small dog on a grisly damp November afternoon. A quick search for dog friendly cafes found the Driftwood Coffee shop right in the heart of the town. The place was welcoming and very dig friendly made even better with the most delicious Brie bacon and cranberry toasted panini (could have had baguette or white or... More

Description
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
