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 place and the staff as they made us feel right at home and would even try to make something off the menu for you if they had the right ingredients. The cafe is right on front street and very close to everything including the market.

Jill and company arranged catering for our service group (breakfast, lunch, dinner). The food was always delicious and made from organic and fresh ingredients. Jill is extremely creative and offered us traditional Belizean dishes as well as familiar American-style dishes with a tropical flair, using local produce. She also provided fresh-baked treats like muffins and cakes. Everyone, even the self-professed picky eaters in my group, really enjoyed every meal.

Beyond the catered meals, we all beat a path to the Driftwood Cafe for coffee, espresso, and blended smoothie drinks. In addition to the tasty treats at the Driftwood, you can also experience Creole cooking and drumming if you visit Jill and her husband Emmeth at their drum school on the edge of town.

We had a late lunch when we got into town; actually they stayed open to make us a couple of vegan burritos. The food was very good. Jill and her staff were very helpful and friendly. They helped us find our lodging, which was out of town a bit. We also stopped by for coffee while in town and it was good as well.

The atmosphere and food are great at the driftwood cafe. Be sure to pay a visit to Jill, organize a cooking class and a drumming class with her and Emmeth Young, this is why you actually came to Belize for! Drum not gun!!

Driftwood Cafe catered for my ProWorld service-learning group for two weeks this January (breakfast, lunch, and dinner). The crew at the Driftwood Cafe was extraordinarily accommodating and friendly and provided us with a great variety of unique dishes using fresh, local ingredients. Driftwood offers a myriad of coffee drinks and frozen beverages.

The cafe is decorated with local art, crafts, and Garifuna drums. It is a fantastic mix of food and culture.
