Drift café, run by local farmers Jo and Stuart McNicol, has introduced a loyalty scheme to thank customers for their ongoing devotion throughout the pandemic.

The cafe has partnered with Loyal Zoo to create a fully digitised loyalty card so customer’s repeatedly returning for a morning coffee or a classic Drift roll for lunch will gain points.

Drift is well-known for providing the very best views of Quarrel Sands beach and Bass Rock is also launching a brand new menu after listening to the wants of its customers.

The new menu includes soup, sausage rolls, bridies, new pastries and a ‘pick me up’ box which features a sausage roll, bridie, cheese scone, cupcake, pastry, fruit scone with jam and clotted cream. The afternoon tea inspired box costs £12.00.

Jo McNicol, co-owner of Drift said: “Our customers have been incredible throughout the pandemic so we have been looking for a way to really thank them.

“Our new loyalty scheme will allow them to gain points for every pound spent and in return they will achieve free hot drinks right up to a meal. It’s a way for us to give something back to those who have really kept us in business over the last few months.

“The scheme is completely paperless and it’s integrated into our EPOS system meaning customers can opt in via email or text and don’t have to worry about losing a physical card.

“We have lots of exciting news for the future which we’re not ready to share just now but it is partly to do with the new menu – there will be some exciting changes so watch this space.”

Drift is a unique eatery made of upcycled containers and ceiling to floor panoramic windows offering homemade breakfast, brunch or sweet treats.

Guests can continue to make use of the recently refurbished outdoor facilities which include lunch benches to fit the whole family or potato boxes which look out onto Quarrel Sands beach and beyond.
