Dandelion & Driftwood on Doncaster
Two years after closure of its popular Gerler Road cafe, Dandelion & Driftwood made its triumphant return to the suburb in early 2021. Owners Penny and Peter Wolff (of Wolff Coffee Roasters fame) secured a larger space just a few doors down from the cafe’s original poky locale, securing much more room to expand upon its popular brand of hospitality. Located just down the road from Wolff’s HQ and espresso bar on the corner of Doncaster Street and Gerler Road, Dandelion & Driftwood 3.0’s interior boasts vintage and contemporary touches as well as masculine and feminine tones – elements of both Penny and Peter’s personalities. The menu encompasses breakfast, lunch and dinner, with Dandelion & Driftwood favourites (as well as the return of D&D’s high teas) sharing menu space with tasty reinterpretations of hearty classics. We can guarantee that coffee drinkers are in for a real treat, as the cafe is pouring two specialty house blends (called Dandelion and Driftwood, respectively) as well as an array of exclusive single origin roasts for filter and espresso in addition to a range of teas and alcoholic beverages. Champagne high tea, anyone?
