“Best internet in PG”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

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.

“Amazing smoothies, good omelets”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2014

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.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2014

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.

“Tasty, fresh, and nutricious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2014

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.
