Tuna Melt

This is a small cozy cafe in the heart of georgetown, but the food is really good. They have a few specials, but the tuna melts are my favorite. Its a true Bahamian tuna melt. The ambience is wonderful, there is an outside sitting area full of gorgeous plants, and inside you can sit alone or at a... read more

We stopped here for lunch. The sandwiches were excellent, and it was probably the best coffee we had in Exuma. Lovely quaint spot, nice and helpful staff, good location (right in the center of George Town). Definitely give it a try.

Best Coffe around! The prices are a bit high, but it's worth every penny for a good cup of coffee while in Exuma!

My wife and I were staying at the Grand Isle Resort & Spa and wanted to take a drive over to Georgetown to do some shopping and have lunch. We read on TripAdvisor that the Driftwood Cafe would be a great place to eat. We arrived about 3:10PM and were sad to find out they close at 3:00PM. We were... More

If you're in Exuma, you have to visit Driftwood cafe. If nothing else, it's the only place to get a decent cup of coffee!! It is a beautiful space, air conditioned (which itself is a welcome relief). The sandwiches are so big that on both occasions, I had to take half home with me!

We only discovered the Driftwood Cafe during our last visit but it is great! Our daughter is vegan and loved their black bean and corn burger. Other great food for non-vegans too including various sandwiches plus this is about the only place on the island that offers coconut water! Great when you need to rehydrate quickly as the heat and...

I came here because I forgot to pack cereal on our trip, so I had to buy breakfast for everyone. 9 people in all, everyone enjoyed their meal and were actually glad we had more than cereal. Very friendly and helpful staff, we were even given extra eggs. I would definitely visit here again the next time I visit the... More
