I bumped into a friend in carrickmines recently & we decided to go for coffee. She brought me to the vanilla pod & I was so pleasantly surprised. We both ended up having lunch & coffee & it was fab.

The menu choice & selection, the taste & prep and the service has ALWAYS been top drawer. It's never quiet really... More

Always busy with queues outside the door, but the staff make sure to sit you asap. I ordered the pancakes and a smoothie, the pancakes came with maple syrup and bacon but the pancakes were okay with regards to flavour and taste. However there is good quality food on the menu, and the scones are to die for!!
