"Stunning cake! Delicious as well !"


We had our daughter's 21st cake made at Vanilla Pod. It was a white chocolate mud cake exquisitively decorated and delicious to eat as well. There were people who said they don't normally eat cake going back for seconds and thirds! Would highly recommend for your next special occasion.

"Best coffee on the strip"


While staying with family in Heathmont the Vanilla pod has become a regular stopping point to either sit in and have brunch/afternoon tea or to grab a coffee and pastry on our onward road trips. Best coffee around and great English breakfast tea made to suit an English person who appreciates a well made cuppa. The full cakes in the store look awesome and made with such skill. Pastry selection is lovely and fresh. The cafe is always busy. All reasonably priced for sitting in or taking away.

I love this place, go here often with girlfriends, the food is delicious, coffee great, the cakes are to die for, staff are very efficient, they have a loyalty card get a drink free after purchasing so many. If you are after a special cake for a celebration, this is the place to go they are amazing. Can recommend the Vanilla Pod in the heart of Heathmont Shopping strip, it excellent value for money.

"Cosy cafe is a great place for coffee or lunch and a chat"


My favourites in this cafe are the tasty cheese and avocado toasties, a good selection of cakes, including gluten free if you need them, and great coffee. I have often taken my aged Dad to this cafe for lunch and a chat in the bustling suburban strip shopping centre of Heathmont in Melbourne and have never been disappointed. A very congenial atmosphere with comfortable seating and good service.

"Small, intimate, delicious cakes"


Obviously the haunt of locals, this small narrow coffee shop is quiet enough for good conversation. Food is served on quirky wood platters and interesting homewares line the walls. Admire the decorated cakes for sale. Enjoyed our coffee and cake.
