Good experience!

This place was better, very small but cute, comfortable, quiet, pleasant experience. I got to try meals that not only sounded good but actually tasted very good.

Jill is a very interesting hostess and manager! She is also a good cook! We always make a point of eating breakfast at the Driftwood when we visit Punta Gorda. I especially like the omelets and the whole wheat tortillas! So good with the refried beans! Thanks, Jill, for your interesting stories and good food!

Very cute little cafe just 1 minute walk from the bus or boat stop. We had 1.5 hours to wait to go on the boat to Livingstone, so hung out here. Free, fast wifi. Good milkshakes and quiche. Local art for sale.

Absolutely loved the choices of meals at this cafe. Friendly service and exceptional value. My favorite breakfast was potato and eggs topped with blackened cheese with a side of black beans. I ate there several times. My favorite lunch was fire hearth grilled chicken kabobs over salad with a cilantro lime dressing. Hands down the best place in town! Ask... More

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.

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.
