The Vanilla Slice Cafe Sorrento

Restaurant and Cafe

Nestled in main street Sorrento with a limestone façade and old-fashioned charm, the Vanilla Slice Café looks like it’s straight out of the Edwardian era. But the vanilla slice? It’s completely out of this world. One taste and you’ll think your grandma was behind the counter (well, if your grandma made a completely kickass vanilla slice).

The Vanilla Slice Café has something of a cult following. Since 1983, this beloved spot has been offering up creamy slices of heaven and a menu full of other sweet treats and savoury scrummy-ness. Balance the sweet with the savoury and try one of the breakfast dishes like the Eggs Benny or the lunchtime Sorrento Beef Burger, they’re seriously addictive.

Here everything is made by hand, locally sourced where possible with the freshest ingredients and cooked on the premises by Chef Paul who’s been cooking here for 30 years.

The seasonal menu celebrates the best of local and sustainable produce and focuses on creating dishes that celebrate each ingredient to create tasty, clean and simple food that the whole family can enjoy.

The Vanilla Slice Café is open every day with extended hours throughout summer.
