Ripe is a traditional style café situated within the unique little town of Sassafras and is located right next to the well-known Tea leaves shop.

Offering an appealing range of breakfast menu items until around 11.30AM and a smaller lunch menu.

We dined on the grilled chicken breast with wedges and the Vegetarian tasting plate which also includes the soup.

With good quality food and courteous service, we had enjoyable time sitting on the rear decking eating our meals.

The café also has a range of dessert items on offer and a variety of local produce for sale.

I eat at Ripe every week, sometimes more often. For me, the coffee quality is reliably good. I love the service ... it's chill, it's friendly and not intrusive. It's got a great deck for kids to play which is safe and elevated amongst the trees out the back. PRobably Ripe's best feature is the amazing array of desserts, most of which are made by the chef on-site.

I usually love ripe but had a large cappuccino today and it was bitter. I told the waitress that removed my barely touched glass and expected someone to come and see me about it as I had complained but nothing and still had to pay 😡

What an embarrassment to bring our international visitors to Ripe Cafe. We were served stale bread sandwiches. The waitress explained that the "bread was cold" and said the sandwiches would be "lightly toasted".
They were not toasted. They were slightly warm, stale bread sandwiches. Would have been better "fully toasted" or perhaps burnt at the stake. A disgraceful meal that spoiled an otherwise wonderful day in the Dandenongs. - Colin.

Most (or all) cafes around that area serve fantastic coffee and food, so it's customer service that would make one restaurant better than the other.

This place? Disappointing.

When we walked in, one waitress spoke to us in such a odd manner. It was like she assumed that we won't be able to understand English (racism alert). However, to be fair to the rest of the staff members, there were some good people working there.
