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. We also have a small but mighty wine list that is sure to please.

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? We have you covered, with private events available most nights. Get in touch via the contact form below and we will organise everything for you.
