Driftwood Café on Chesterman Beach Now Licensed

Tofitians have long known the Driftwood Café is a fantastic spot to stop for a latte after a walk down Chesterman Beach.

Now, after years (literally!) of planning and applications, the Café has received a long-awaited liquor license, allowing us to serve wine and beer to guests enjoying the outdoor patio or inside warming by the fireplace. Our culinary team has created a menu of bites including cured seafood, charcuterie and dips to go along with the new beverage selections.

The Driftwood Café was named after the massive driftwood bar – complete with barnacles – which is the focal point of the room (after the view, of course). Originally, this space was created with the opening of our Beach building to serve coffees, pastries, fresh breads and smoothies.

With our new license, Tofino residents and visitors have a new casual option for bites and bevvys on Chesterman Beach, serving until 9:00pm. We look forward to welcoming you soon!
