Driftwood Café

A local Tofino favourite, the Driftwood Café is named for it's signature massive driftwood bar, found on coastal Vancouver Island. During the day, enjoy a latte, cappucino, or other signature blends along with delightful fruit smoothies, brunch or sandwich selections. If you would rather take your meal to the beach, the Driftwood Café's Beach Walk menu will offer you on-the-go friendly choices. Daily house-made bread is available for purchase so you can take the freshness home with you.

Slow down time in the afternoons or end your day on Chesterman Beach with a glass of wine, beer or ciders on the Café’s beachfront patio, cozied up inside by the fireplace, or at the bar. The Driftwood Café's evening menu focuses on lighter fare, offering tasty bites of fresh Tofino seafood and Vancouver Island seasonal produce perfect for sharing. Browse local art at the Henry Nolla Gallery space off the café's beach entrance.

There are so many ways to enjoy the Driftwood Café, open until 9:00pm nightly - just walk in, and be our guest.
