We found this place by accident after we were rudely turned away by a nearby restaurant that was yet to open, despite its website stating differently. We were three childhood classmates meeting after some time, one was visiting from interstate and the other from overseas. This was the best thing that happened, it was a dark gloomy weekday morning. The restaurant was so lovely and welcoming. We were seated by the glass window, by the large tree it was beautiful and magical. Our breakfast was lovely too, the scrambled eggs were perfection. It was just a great experience.

Ordered the avo smash for my wife and scrambled eggs with fetta for myself. I could not find any fetta in the scrambled eggs and the waiter even mentioned when he brought it to the table that the fetta was cooked through it. My wife thought she had mushrooms in her meal half way through it, no it was'nt mushrooms just a very brown avocado. She mentioned this to the waitress and they brought out another half avocado, turned it over and yes, very brown.. :-(
Paid for the meal, a Saturday surcharge and an eftpos surcharge!

The food is good at Ripe; though it is costly. $120 for breakfast for two of us. Yes, we had a couple of extras and yes, we had a couple of smoothie drinks and a coffee, but it’s probably the most expensive place in the hills; $7 for a mushroom.

Enjoyed meal & good options available although I'm not in hurry to return.
Booked online & would think table away from main walkway would be priority v's walk ins. Requested to sit in small area off to side of cafe only to be told it's not open as not enough staff. I appreciate staff shortages however behind the scene issues are not a customers concern. Friend had to ask for scones after drinks delivered & 10 minutes passed to be told "they are coming", communication would have been appreciated.
Some staff friendly others appeared occupied with less customer priority.

Our Daughter and Son in Law flew in from Vienna earlier in the day.
Most places were closed, so Ripe at Sassafras was the logic answer.
A most enjoyable start to their visit to Oz.
Thankyou.
