Located in the heart of Ascot, Brisbane (opposite Oriel Park), Vanilla Pod Cake and Deli Cafe is the perfect place to meet with friends, take the family, or pop in for your sweet, savoury or daily coffee fix. 

At The Pod our food reflects the seasons and our philosophy revolves around using only the best and freshest ingredients we can source. We also cater for vegetarians and celiacs.

Our newly launched breakfast menu is a mix of Vanilla Pod favourites like our house made fruit toast with local Grainge raspberry jam, avo on sourdough with topped Persian fetta and dukkah, eggs the way you like them on buttered toast with a side of Barossa bacon, fresh croissants or a brekky bagel with the lot! We have gluten free bread and bagels available too.

There's sure to be something to take help you start the day. Available until 10AM (Mon-Fri) and 11AM (Sat).   

Our lunch selection can be found in our cabinet, with fresh delicious salads and savouries taking inspiration from the delicious gourmet products that line our deli shelves. 

If you are looking for something sweet, try our freshly baked scones, classic citrus tart, raspberry crumble slice, neenish tart or one of the many flavours of our famous cupcakes..... the list goes on!

We make great coffee, however you like it! We've partnered with local Brisbane roasters Bear Bones Specialty Coffee  to perfect our very own Pod blend.   

Our deli shelves are always stocked with a delicious range of gourmet products. So whether you're looking for inspiration for your next dinner party, or an easy midweek dinner, our team is able to help - and we have plenty of delicious recipes to share!   

Over the past 13 years our cafe has become a part of the local community and we consider our customers, team, and suppliers to be one big Vanilla Pod family. We are warmly known as 'The Pod' to our regulars and locals. Drop by today and let our team show you the The Pod difference - no booking necessary! 

We love hearing from you and seeing your photos! Leave a review on our Facebook page and tag your Vanilla Pod snaps with #vanillapodcafe
