We were headed to the Corner Cafe after reading the Trip Advisor reviews. Unfortunately they were closing and for some reason tried to send us across the road to the pub! Happily I took another look here and spotted Driftwood was just around the corner....More

A bit like carling claims to make probably the best (coffee ) in town We had 2 Americanos but we're disappointed the coffee was OK but certainly not the best. Service was prompt and efficient. Surroundings clean and tidy.

Absolutely lovely here. The prices are good the staff are very friendly. With it being off the main street slightly it is not over crowded as other places and can actually have a conversation. Love this place 🤗

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
