Welcome to Vanilla Pod.
Since 2005, Vanilla Pod has been an integral part of the local Brisbane community.
Scott and I first opened Vanilla Pod Cake & Deli Cafe in Ascot, enjoying the company of many great friends and customers from all over Brisbane, Australia and beyond! Vanilla Pod became a hub for cakes, catering, gourmet foods, breakfast, lunch or a seriously good coffee.
A growing demand for our specialty cakes lead us to open Vanilla Pod Specialty Cake Kitchen in nearby Albion in 2014. Here with a dedicated team of bakers, decorators and designers, we continued the Vanilla Pod mantra creating bespoke cakes for all occasions - birthdays, christenings, corporate events and weddings to name a few!
In 2019, our success in cake baking & design has lead us to focus solely on designing magnificent cakes in our Vanilla Pod Specialty Cake Kitchen. After an astounding 14 years, Scott and I have decided to sell our very much-loved Vanilla Pod Cake & Deli Café to Patrick Rano & Carmen Gutierrez. We are confident Patrick, Carmen and their team will uphold our high standard while putting a fresh spin on the daily operations of the café that will transition to The Pod Café in the coming months. We wish them well, and encourage you to welcome them to the Ascot community with the same warmth that you showed our family all those years ago.
To our fabulous customers, who mean so much to the Vanilla Pod Team and our family, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your unending support over the years. The Vanilla Pod Specialty Cake Kitchen Team and I are ready for a busy year in Albion, and look forward to having you join us for the next exciting chapter of Vanilla Pod - it's sure to be sweet!
