Dandenong - Sassafras Tea Room

Sassafras Tea Room

I've been a fan of this place for a couple of years, and would recommend it for anyone looking for a nice brunch with a couple of people. The food and service have always been excellent, so I recently decided to host a baby shower at Sassafras.

I was very disappointed to find that both the food and service for a large party were sub-par to my normal experience. Despite booking and informing of the number of potential guests nearly 2 months in advance, the tea room ended up overbooking on the day of the baby shower. We were put into a very small, cramped room, and I was not informed of the overbooking until I called the week before the shower to confirm our food count. The food portions we received on the day of the shower were much smaller than the typical food portion, even though the price was marked up to $14/person (compared to about $10/person individually). The owner did provide cupcakes free of charge to compensate for the overbooking, but when our bill came I was surprised with a 30% gratuity!

I would have highly recommended this place prior to my baby shower experience, but this has left such a bad taste in my mouth that I'm unlikely to visit again, and certainly wouldn't host another event here.
