Nice surroundings, very personable staff, good menu and coffee par excellence. The coffee menu is extensive and all that I have tried are first class. The flat white is powerful, smooth and without bitterness. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.

I often visit here with family or friends and always fantastic service & food. Always accommodating as Mum has to bring her walker which often gets in the way but at the driftwood it is never a problem. Would highly recommend a visit.

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
