The Café Fit for a King

Vision Magazine - - Destinations -

Scenic Sas­safras, a town lo­cated in the stun­ningly pic­turesque Dan­de­nong ranges, hosts the his­toric King Henry Arts Café. This beau­ti­ful cafe was es­tab­lished in 1902 and still boasts many of its orig­i­nal fit­tings. The orig­i­nal fix­tures and fit­tings com­bine with a range of gor­geous an­tiques to cre­ate a warm and cosy feel, very wel­come on a chilly win­ter’s day. Re­cent ren­o­va­tions make it the per­fect stop­ping place if you’re on a day trip to one of the nearby towns or tak­ing a ride on the fa­mous Puff­ing Billy.

You can snap a selfie with the Yeo­man Of The Guard who will wel­come you upon ar­rival, and once you’ve or­dered break­fast, lunch or af­ter­noon tea from a mouth-wa­ter­ing menu in­clud­ing a range of home­baked goods, you can play a board game on the deck out­side, try your hand at the gi­ant chess game on the lawn or wan­der through the café’s lovely gar­dens. The menu caters for a wide range of tastes, in­clud­ing vegetarian op­tions.

Beau­ti­fully dec­o­rated rooms, ex­ten­sive grounds fea­tur­ing for­mal gar­dens as well as some more nat­u­ral spa­ces, de­li­cious food and cof­fee and friendly staff all com­bine to make this a trip well worth mak­ing. This fam­ily friendly café also wel­comes dogs on leads (your pup might even be lucky enough to get his own doggy treat!), so there is truly some­thing for ev­ery­one here. Lo­cals and vis­i­tors alike love this beau­ti­ful place, with many reg­u­lars re­turn­ing to dine on the de­li­cious treats and en­joy the tran­quil sur­rounds time af­ter time.
