Sassafras is home to one of the hills biggest icons, Miss Marples. A tudor house full to the brim of memorabilia and Devonshire tea! If a bit of kitsch isn't your thing, you'll be well looked after with lunch and Devonshire Tea at Dine Divine, in the old Sassafras church at the bottom of Sassafras, or Fortnum's, a wonderful glass pavillion at the top end. In between you'll find the secret that the locals don't want you to find out about Ripe Sassafras Café Restaurant.
For coffee lovers you can't go past The Storehouse Roastery. You'll probably smell it before you see it.
The main road that runs through Sassafras is flanked by some of the most unique shops you'll ever come across. If you don't find it here, you don't need it! If you're into fashion, accessories and homeware you'll love Lennox at the top end of Sassafras. For ethically sourced, sustainable fashion and giftware, From Dust is the place to go.
If you're looking for a bit of everything, then Seven Pages has you covered, an emporium full of Australian and locally made homewares, gifts, art, clothing, books and so much more. Wander down a secret alley, and you'll discover a unique store with a myriad of treasures... Smits & Bits!
As you wander down the road, you won't be able to resist SOAK, the sweetest smelling store in Sassafras with fragrances, body care, soaps and candles all made in Melbourne. If candles are your passion, we even have a store dedicated to them at Bluestone Candles. Buy already made or purchase the supplies to make them yourself. Sassafras also has a store dedicated to all things soap, 100% natural skin care products, appropriately called Soap Opera.
If you're a dedicated tea drinker then you won't want to miss Tea Leaves with 100's of unique tea blends and equally unique tea pots. And we haven't forgotten the kids, big and small. No trip to Sassafras is complete without a visit to Geppetto's Workshop for toys and puppets galore and Sassafras Sweet Co for old fashioned favourites from around the world.
