Vanilla is a gem of a cafe. Food is delicious. Staff are excellent. They even baked scones fresh for our gluten free friend. There are lots of cafes in St Anne's but this is definitely the best.

Fantastic family run business. Extremely friendly staff - nothing is too much trouble. Great menu and delicious home cooked food. Lovely atmosphere - very relaxing. Would highly recommend either for coffee and a cake, a spot of lunch, or fabulous afternoon tea ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Hello. We do allow well behaved dogs to come into the shop. They are allowed in the window areas (away from the kitchen) :)
