Vanilla Pod is a quaint cafe and deli in Ascot specialising in cakes, cupcakes, biscuits and savoury treats. Each sweet is made in house, ensuring light and fluffy cakes, fresh icing and pastry made with love. Red velvet sponge, caramel and date slice, pumpkin pie, raspberry crumble slice, citrus tarts and cupcakes are laid out in glowing cake cabinets ready to be devoured. The all-day lunch menu is inspired by Vanilla Pod’s delicatessen, full of fresh produce and local flavours. A cup of Zentveld’s Byron Bay Ernesto Roast coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious lavender and vanilla butter cake.
