Took my resorts senior managers out for lunch and once again visited Driftwood Café a favorite of all team members. Nice to have the option of still being able to order breakfast even during lunch time. Great food and service.

We had a delicious breakfast with great service! Large portions. I had the breakfast nachos ( can't remember what the actual name was) I ordered the half portion and couldn't finish!

One of the early conclusions in Lake Tahoe area is the high cost of meals, when looking for reasonable food, good value and quantity would highly recommend the Driftwood Café for breakfast or lunch. Large menu, excellent service in a smaller "plain jane" atmosphere, tasty...More

Enjoyed a Saturday Brunch at the Driftwood Cafe. We sent one of our party ahead to put our name on the list for the 1 hour wait. Very good food that was served quickly - considering how busy they were.

My family ate at this restaurant for both breakfast and lunch. We had good meals with good service both times. The staff was extremely friendly. If you are staying at the Marriott resort, you will receive a 10% discount.Great for all ages.

Do you have all day breakfast? Or is breakfast only in the morning, if so, until what time?

We are open 7 am to 3 pm and serve breakfast and lunch all day. Soup starts at 11 am.
Do you have an outside patio? I have a small dog and don't like to lave her in the hotel room..

I dined inside the cafe a couple of times and did, indeed, see people seated outside who were served as well if it wasn't too busy inside. On days it was busy, patrons came inside to order and brought their food outside if... More

My family had the pleasure of enjoying your restaurant this past weekend and I particularly enjoyed the coffee. I forgot the brand of coffee that the waitress told me you use. I would love to order some if you could pass on the brand and type of coffee you use. Thank you.

Sorry for late reply. I have never seen these questions before today when I got an email from Trip Advisor. We use Alpen Sierra coffee, vienna roast. They do have an online store.
