Sassafras - tourist village in the Dandenong Ranges.
As we drove through this town, we decided it was the ideal place to stop for a much needed coffee.
The most well known cafe in Sassafras is this one - Miss Marples Tea Rooms,
but they had just closed for the day at 4 pm when we got there, so we strolled down the street, and found another lovely little place where we had delicious coffee with almond and apple cake.
When we left the cafe, we wandered back up the street toward the car, but could not pass this little place without a peek inside. Did I say little? Appearances can be very deceptive; this place was enormous inside! They sell a huge variety of teas and coffees, but most of the shelves are full of teapots, cups, and other paraphernalia to do with tea drinking.
The next two photos are just some of the teapots in the front window.
And these are inside the shop. See what I mean about the size of the place?
The sign outside says it all - I've never seen so many teapots in my life!! If you haven't been here, and you love a cuppa, do make the effort to drive up there one day. It is worth the drive just for this shop alone!
