Vanilla Pod {Brighton}

On the hunt for a places to soothe our poor hungover heads with breakfast and coffee, Fran and I stumbled upon Vanilla Pod.

We'd both passed it a few times, but never ventured inside, we're so glad we did. It's decorated very sweetly with fresh flowers on tables, cool jar lights hanging from the ceiling and vintage looking dressers with teapots and teacups on.

After reading the menu, a difficult decision later, we opted for two iced coffee and two full english  breakfast.

How good do they sound? Might have to pop back for one of those this week... 
They had a delicious looking array of cakes, lots of gluten free and vegan ones too!

We watched as the lovely woman made our iced coffee, which were without a doubt the best ones we've ever tasted. We asked how they made them, it's a combination of a thai recipe and english recipe. In Thailand they use lots of condensed milk and powered milk, due to a lack of fresh milk being available. This being a lot sweeter, and the combination with fresh milk and fresh coffee, makes their ice coffees super sweet and creamy. Served in glass jars with a handle is was a perfectly sweet pick me up! 

Two poached eggs, granary toast, cherry vine tomatoes, thick bacon, Lincolnshire sausages, field mushrooms and homemade baked beans. It hit the spot perfeclty and felt very luxurious for an english breakfast, nothing like a greasy full english from a local cafe, it was absolutely delicious. The homemade baked beans tasted incredible with strong flavours of (what I thought to be) barbecue and tomato. I would have taken more photos but I was ravenous and got stuck right in... oops! 

It will definitely be a spot I'll keep going back too. Perfect for if I have some guest visiting or the boyfriend and I feel like a treat one morning, lunch time, afternoon or tea time! 

You can find Vanilla Pod at 52 Lansdowne Place, Hove, BN3 1FG.

Go over to their Facebook or Twitter and try not to drool looking at all their photos of their cakes!
