“Pay a Visit!”
Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

I paid my first visit to the Vanilla Pod yesterday, & instantly realised what I had been missing on my previous trips to The Park in Carrickmines. What a treasure: a lovely homely atmosphere, excellent food, spotlessly clean , friendly helpful staff & terrific value. Highly recommended! Will definitely return!

“Excellent Modern Cafe/Brasserie”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

My wife and I ate here recently whilest out shopping after hearing good things from friends. We had a really nice lunch. I had the pulled pork sandwich with a soup and both were really good. The pulled pork didn't pack the flavour punch I was expecting, and it was a little dry when tried without the lovely slaw. the soup was very nice indeed. Herself had a warm chicken ciabatta, and she loved it. It was a nice touch to have the sauce/dressing on the side so people can use as they wish. I didn't like the way our drinks were served without ice, that's not a runner in my book. Service was professional and quick, and the surroundings were nice and the look of the cafe is well thought out.

“Friendly Staff - a great choice in food. Food very well presented.”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Any time I am in Carrickmines The Park I will try and meet up with friends for lunch. Sometimes a bowl of delicious soup and bread in the winter is great. This time of year the salads are tasty.
Friendly staff and quick service is what you get.

“Top Class Food with a lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

From the moment you enter the Vanilla Pod, the atmosphere is amazing, the Staff are so friendly, efficient & obliging. The food, freshly prepared & so tasty, great menu, wonderful little funky quotes on the Staff T Shirts and coffee mugs. Well worth the visit. Always a good sign of a good spot when you see a queue.

“Quirky & Delicious”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

I've been here twice & thoroughly enjoyed both experiences. The service was fast. The food was delicious. I've only bee here for lunch, but I find unless you want to go to a fast food restaurant your choices can be limited. Every time I visit Carrickmines I plan on going here. the have losts of quirky condoment holders. The salt sellers are the tiniest cutest things ever & the sugar pots are so cute. Lovely place.
