Fresh edge to local cuisine


THE Driftwood Cafe has established itself as the place to be for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Nestled in the heart of Ocean Grove’s main street, the team at the Driftwood never fail to deliver.
With a philosophy of using fresh, local, free range, seasonal and organic produce, where possible, the Driftwood prides itself on it’s quality. With a few dedicated fruit and vegetable growers bringing in bags of fresh produce every week and some occasional gardeners with an over supply, they are happy to use products grown in the local area.
The Driftwood has always taken great care to ensure the products they use and impact they have upon the environment is as responsible as possible. With a real community focus, supporting local schools, events and other local groups has meant the Driftwood Cafe has cemented a welcome place within Ocean Grove.
After two renovations to expand the space last year, the Driftwood now offers areas that can be used for private functions from elaborate sit down meals to canape parties or early morning breakfast meetings. Now offering a range of outside catering options, the Driftwood seems to offer something for everyone.
Fridays nights have really taken off with the ’Five Bites for $5’ tapas nights which have been a huge success. Cafe owner Ty Simons has been delighted with their success and says “from a month-long trial to a weekly event, we will keep tapas going until the madness of summer starts”.
Ty adds: “The fun part is trying to come up with different tempting bites every week”.
With the warmer weather almost here, the team at the Driftwood are looking forward to opening all the doors, retiring the fireplace for the season, opening The Atrium roof and gearing up for another busy summer.
