Ripe is a cafe by day, restaurant by night. Owned and run by hills locals. Located in the quaint Sassafras Village in the Dandenong Ranges, about a 45 minute drive east of Melbourne. Our chefs use local, fresh and ethically sourced produce offering an all day breakfast and lunch menu that includes a veggie love section, with plenty of vegan and gluten free meals and house made cakes. As for our coffee, we are pretty passionate about quality, serving a double ristretto for a standard cup. Our roaster is Melba Organic, nine time winners of the golden bean coffee roasting competition. For afternoon tea, enjoy delicious house made pastries, cakes, biscuits and scones.
"Life is like a cup of coffee, it's all about how you make it".
