About Us

Sassafras is your home away from home. Set in a converted workers cottage in the heart of Paddington, it’s one of Brisbane’s oldest main stay cafés. Recently renovated inside, and boasting a huge leafy back yard garden, Sass (as it’s known to locals) is home to amazing breakfasts, brunches and lunches, home made cakes, espresso from Bear Bones, and those famous ricotta hotcakes with house made honeycomb butter.

Not to mention Sassafras is fully licensed, with a healthy list of craft beer, cider, spirits and cocktails. And a small but mighty wine list that covers all the bases, there is also live music in the garden on Thursdays from 5:30pm  and Sundays from 4pm.

Drag Queen hosted trivia  nights are on the second and last Friday’s of the month,  and are always a good time.

Have something to celebrate? Sass has you covered, with private events available on Saturday nights. Get in touch via the contact form below and we will organise everything for you.
