We have eaten in Punta Gorda at 4 different places now. We were about to give up on trying to find good food there until we happened to walk by the Driftwood Cafe! It looked inviting and the menu looked great! We ordered a wrap and salad and it was delicious! The atmosphere was friendly and the service was perfect... More

Fresh,healthy and homemade food, this was always a pleasant place to eat. Their breakfasts were my favorite with fresh hot muffins right from the over a specialty! Owner Jill would go out of her way to accommodate the special dietary needs of her customers.

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.
