The Cafe that the locals wanted to keep a secret!
Ripe Australian Produce is a foodie cafe and specialty coffee cafe owned and run by hills locals. Established in 1999, Ripe is 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. Enjoy delicious breakfast and lunch dishes with plenty of vegan and gluten free meals and cakes. Our head barista is passionate about quality coffee so we have partnered with Melba Organic Roasters, nine time winners of the golden bean coffee roasting competition. For afternoon tea, enjoy delicious house made pastries, cakes, biscuits and scones.
