Enjoy breath-taking views of the East Coast and unmissable home baking from the comfort of DRIFT

Wednesday, 07 October 2020

For those looking for breath-taking views, brilliant coffee and the ultimate homemade treats, then look no further than Drift Café.

The coffeehouse, set upon the clifftops of Quarrel Sands, has finally opened its doors to welcome guests inside for the first time following lockdown in March.

Drift, a unique eatery made of upcycled containers and ceiling to floor panoramic windows, opened with outdoor seating and a takeaway service in July however after a refresh, the café is looking forward to returning to its normal service.

Guests can now choose from eating inside, or whilst the weather is nice, continue to make use of the new outdoor facilities which include lunch benches to fit the whole family or potato boxes which look out onto Quarrel Sands beach and beyond.

Last year, the café welcomed over 80,000 visitors from all across the country and despite only offering outdoor seating, its reopening has been just as successful.

Jo McNicol, co-owner of Drift said: “Since we reopened in July, it has been a whirlwind, we can’t believe how busy it has been.

“Despite only having outdoor seating over the summer, we have had an influx of visitors who have been busy exploring the East coast looking for open spaces and the great outdoors – and Drift ticks all of the boxes.

“We hope that this will continue now that we can accommodate visitors inside which is perfect timing as we come into autumn and as it starts to get colder.

“It has been an incredibly difficult time for small businesses, especially those in the agritourism industry like ourselves, however this time has allowed us to reflect on our business performance and improve our offering.

“We are lucky that we can now operate fully (albeit with reduced capacity due to government guidelines) and in the last few weeks we have been recruiting new team members, conducting staff training and we have had two promotions within our senior management team. It’s all very positive.

“If you fancy breakfast, brunch or just coffee and a cake, you will be made to feel very welcome by our friendly team whilst you enjoy unrivalled views that you just wouldn’t get anywhere else.”

Booking a table at DRIFT is recommended and can be done so via the Facebook page where you can also get a glimpse of the stunning views, menu specials and all that’s on offer.
