I was here again on Saturday last April 1st. No April fools here though!! It's probably my 15th time to eat here and am only posting a review now. Every single one of my visits have been 5 star. The menu choice & selection, the taste & prep and the service has ALWAYS been top drawer. It's never quiet really... More

Have been here a few times before. The staff are very pleasant and efficient. I also noticed that the staff are very young. The food presentation is very well done. The only thing is brunch is better than lunch. The menu could do with being varied every so often as it would be nice to see something different. Would go... 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!!

Worth the queue. Lovely food and great staff. The menu is not massive, but they were able to accommodate all of our requests.

The VP is one of my absolute favourite places to go for a quick feed.. I find it hard to fault if only to say it's always full at peak times but fear not, they turn the tables over quickly! I often order the warm potato salad and it never fails to hit the spot. I've eaten most of the... More

When we visit Dublin this is our eatery of choice. Was there during a very busy lunchtime yesterday and got seated very quickly. The food was as usual, to die for. The experience is well worth any wait, I hope it never changes. Thanks you for another great experience Vanilla Pod.
