I sometimes work locally and Vanilla pod is my go to for lunch. Above average cafe with a decent selection of desserts and salads. All very tasty. Superfood salad with chicken is hard to pass up, but have yet to be disappointed with a meal....More

Breakfast and brunch good but Italian lunch and dinner dishes in the kitchen section even better and reasonably priced

This is a regular brunch destination for me at the weekends if i'm feeling like a treat. The staff are efficient and accommodating. The restaurant itself is busy but moves quickly. The food is just consistently good and have never had a bad experience
