I’m amazed this place isn’t getting more rave reviews - the food is fantastic. We received a lovely friendly welcome and fantastic service. I had the field mushrooms on toast which was delicious. They made our dog very welcome too. Cannot recommend this place highly...enough.More

This is a lovely little café on Fore Street, a pedestrianised shopping street near Babbacombe near Torquay in Devon. Very friendly staff and good coffee!

My friend and I have been searching around for the best place for breakfast and happened across the Driftwood Café. I can say without hesitation that this is the best breakfast in Torquay!

My wife and I have been past this cafe many times on our visits to St Marychurch and decided to go in for lunch this time. We were not disappointed. The selection on the menu was good. We both had the cheese burger and a...pot of tea for two. The burgers were very tasty the bacon nicely cooked. It was served with a good portion of chips and a salad garnish. The tea was enough for two cups each. We found the staff friendly and professional. Well worth a visit in you are in the area.More

We visited on a busy Thursday morning and were very fortunate to grab the last available table. The very polite young lady quickly come over to take our drink and food order, the coffees followed shortly afterwards and there was a little wait on the...food but this was no problem because there was around four orders that went in just before ours. The food we ordered was delivered and looked and tasted amazing. I had the cheeseburger and my wife the ploughman’s. I think we have found a new place to use weekly. Well done to the staff and will visit again very soon.More

This is a lovely café which we visited on a busy Friday lunchtime. From the moment we arrived, we were made so very welcome and staff went out of their way to help a member of our party check ingredients for an allergy. Service was...good - well trained staff, and everything served with a smile. Why not pop in and see for yourself?More
