Very creative use of healthy, organic food, served with a smile. The pumpkin rings, the vegan chocolate chili and the chicken pineapple salad were especially good, well worth the trip.

I love the Driftwood Cafe. Jill and her team are fantastic! The food, service and selection is great in a friendly relaxed environment. Within minutes, you'll feel at home with some of the best food around.

Vegetarian food. Really good greens and excellent quesadilla. I am not a vegetarian, but I still really liked their food a lot.

The one thing we often miss on our travels is the espresso drinks we enjoy. The Driftwood has probably the best hot and cold coffee drinks we have had anywhere. The omelets with local black beans and wheat tortillas were a good way to start the day. Another good addition to Punta Gorda.

Like your coffee strong? Let Jill and her staff serve you up. Hot or iced, its some of the best coffee in town. Her vegetarian lunches are great, too. But the real treat is heading up to her Firehearth Kitchen in the jungle on a Friday night for pineapple skewered chicken, amazing sides, and some great music.

Driftwood is a pleasant coffee-shop type of business and provides free wifi that is by far the fastest and best in PG. They also have excellent frozen mochas and fruit freezes that are incredibly satisfying on a hot day.

An easy place to hang and a good spot for breakfast. Veggie omelet was great, and the fruit smoothies the best I have ever had. Good wi-fi, coffee and drumming vibe.

Great place to have a cappuccino and a special home made cake in the afternoon right on Front Street. I love it.

The Driftwood Cafe is the best spot in town for breakfast. Jill does and amazing job and the staff are friendly. You can eat at the buffet which changes daily or order off the menu. They make great smoothies and shakes and they also have an espresso machine if you need your caffeine. I can not say enough about this... More
