Here at Driftaway Cafe, we are sincerely grateful for each and everyone that comes through our doors. We love our community and what we do here. We do this because we enjoy doing it, not because we have to. We truly want everyone to have a great time here and always do our absolute best to make it happen!
Some of our staff have been eager to return to work and some have chosen not to. We are hiring! Please be patient as we serve you as quickly as we can. Our kitchen is more like a galley and is very small. With the increase in sanitation steps and the increase in to-go orders we can get a little
backed up, but we assure you we are serving everyone as quickly as possible. With the increasing costs of these extra steps and simply everything the supply chain may or may not offer has made us increasingly aware of how challenging our industry can be in these times. Inflation is outrageous because of supply and demand issues. Our kitchen uses three to five thousand nitrile/latex gloves a week. Precovid they were a penny a piece. Now they are eleven cents a piece. We use twelve- thirty five pound buckets of fryer oil a week. Precovid they were $17 a bucket. Now they are $45. Crazy times we are living in for sure. We are doing our best to keep our pricing like we always have. We want our guests to always know that we represent value and quality. We are sincerely thankful for your continued patronage and look forward to serving you again soon!
