About PeaPod

PeaPod is an Independent, Family Run "Wholefoods " Cafe! An airy space of pastel shades, with room to chill and chat in privacy, the cafe is the perfect place to sip superior coffee, eat a delicious meal or enjoy a glass of bubbly. There is even a small kids play area, conveniently situated allowing parents the luxury of a meal in peace!

 

We believe in using ingredients that are unprocessed and unrefined. Wholefoods never contain additives, artificial colours, flavour enhancers, preservatives or extra salt or sugar. We love Fresh! We buy most of our fruit and vegetables from local farm shops  and our meat and eggs are all free range and sourced from local producers.

PeaPod uses "organic "produce where possible! All of our milk and yoghurt is organic. Our flour and oils are organic as is our chocolate and most of our tinned and bottled ingredients.

Why does this matter? Wholefood and organic food has a higher nutritional value than processed and refined foods. They are higher in antioxidents too which scientists say may protect against certain chronic diseases, even cancer.

 

Our menu is eclectic with influences from different cuisines, but ultimately it is good food that we love to eat as a family!

Our Story

PeaPod cafe was founded in 2013 by Meera and Mary Khalfan a Daughter and Mother team with the aim of bringing to it the things they are passionate about. Meera, an ex banker and owner of sister company My Gym and Mary a boutique owner were looking to create a chilled adult space for people to meet up for a great cup of coffee and fabulous homemade wholefood and to provide a family friendly atmosphere for those with kids too!


Designed by Meera, with its spacious seating areas and dedicated kids play space; its pastel hues and quirky decoration; Peapod ticks all the boxes!


"We do not believe in commercially prepared meals and aim to buy local free range and organic wherever possible. All our meals, amazing cakes and sweet treats are made by our innovative cooks in our own kitchen. As a Wholefoods cafe none of our food has additives or preservatives and most things can be made dairy and gluten free. We have recently added a Vegan Specials board and a daily gluten free and/or vegan cake option"

Mary ,with the help of her fantastic Chefs, designs the menus to reflect the Seasons taking inspiration from an eclectic mix of cooking styles.

"We love brunch and our main menu offers fantastic all day breakfast choices which includes PeaPod's take on the Full English featuring our locally sourced butchers sausages which are 98% meat. Our gluten free Sweet Potato Avocado Stack and vegetarian Garlic Wild Mushrooms on Toast are two other firm favourites, not to mention our yummy American Style Pancakes with Caramelised Bananas!"


Over the past few years, Peapod has established itself as a popular meet up hub not just for families but also as a place to meet up after the gym or for a working breakfast or lunch!

Peapod lends itself well to the hosting of large celebrations and offers several packages suitable for Birthdays, Baby Showers, Engagement Parties etc which include food, beverages, decorations and also a full bar service .

The PeaPod family has grown over the years, and Meera & Mary could not do it all without their fantastic team. 

"We are very lucky that we have an amazing team of hardworking, caring and talented staff, most who have been with us for a few years now. They really are an asset to PeaPod."
