Stopped here in between visiting clients. Nice little spot to unwind in the burbs. Had a seriously tasty Chicken Caesar Salad from their new menu and a yummy long black. Just what I needed to keep me going today. Thanks!!

The coffee here is Fonzie Abbott so already 5 stars. Also the turnaround time to get a coffee in the morning is not only extremely fast but so well made! I live just over 1km away from the cafe and when I need to get a coffee before I start work from home, it will take me 10 minutes round trip between driving and having the coffee made, to sitting back at my desk. Exceptional!

The Pod Cafe, located at 119B Lancaster Road, Ascot, is a lovely place to have a decent cup of coffee & cake, or a light meal. Seating is spaced out due to the Covid-19 pandemic, you can either sit inside on two levels or seating is available outside on the footpath. There is a lovely assortment of cakes available, hot pies & other pastries are also there to select from. Counter service is the order of the day, staff are very welcoming, which made our visit very comfortable. Street parking is available only.

As a long term regular customer, I have experienced the change in management from Vanilla Pod to The Pod Cafe. There has been some turbulence in transition but I feel that current management and staff have certainly elevated the attitude, products and service. New staff have great energy, are so accomodating to special needs and go out of their way to improve your cafe experience. The coffee is consistently of a high standard and both my partner and I enjoy the Fonzie Abbott selection of coffee. The new range of cakes, mini cakes and tarts are dangerously irresistible. Take away, ready to go, hot and cold meals with text ahead ordering allow seamless customer service. I thoroughly recommend giving The Pod Cafe the fresh start it deserves.

Aggressively mediocre, with the attitude of staff stuck in 1993. When asked for any gluten free options the person serving us rolled his eyes and explained how much he hated the question. If you're after a cafe with stale bread and ordinary coffee this is the place for you.
