This place is one of the best in town. Could not recommend it enough. Great atmosphere, super friendly staff, and great food! The drinks are reasonably priced and most of all they the owners treat everyone like family. Top place in Gloucester to go. 10/5 stars recommend!!!
Drift is one of my all-time favorite places for coffee, brunch, lunch, dinner, and drinks. The entire staff is SO amazing and friendly, especially a big shout to Chris and Charlie! The food is always so outstanding and delicious. You really cannot go wrong coming to Drift.
From Western MA in town for the evening. We saw the outside bar from the street and decided to stop by for some drinks and food. What an awesome place. Although we were told the kitchen was closed the owner immediately told us where to go to get late-night food. We were having such a good time that we did not want to leave. We ended up with muffins and danish for dinner!!! After some time, the owner made us a tray of cheese, crackers, olives, and salami. We did not ask he just offered... it was delicious ... he did not charge us!!! Now that’s customer service. We will defiantly be back!!!
Drift was a very pleasant experience! Stopped by for quick sip of espresso, stayed much longer than expected to have a chat with Rick! It is a Beautifully designed cafe, with a wonderful view! The coffee was amazing, and selection of spirits will satisfy anyone! If you are in the area! Make a stop, and visit!
