About Ripe

A buzzing cafe in Sassafras along the scenic route of Victoria's Dandenong Ranges, Ripe is a cosy eatery adorned with broad wooden decking, a fireplace in the corner and shelves of quality local produce. Amidst a relaxed atmosphere, Ripe's friendly staff serve up a deli style range of gourmet baguettes, hot coffees and cakes, as well as a restaurant selection of breakfast and lunch options. French toast with fresh local berries is a favourite at Ripe, along with the crunchy gourmet baguette filled with brie, prosciutto and quince paste. Ripe is a bustling venue, particularly on weekends so get in early and enjoy a coffee in the sunshine while indulging in treats such as lemon tart or apple and rhubarb crumble.

Love Ripe! An unassuming gem of an establishment. Unique menu options and delicious tasting platters. Very busy and bookings are essential. Service is fabulous and their white chocolate Lindt hot chocolates are to die for


This is great place for brunch and coffee on the weekend. Very difficult to find a parking spot in sassafrass and then again difficult to get a table in Ripe, however worth the wait. You must try their lindt hot chocolates!
