We dropped by to get a take away cake. We were told quite rudely to "wait a few minutes" with a "talk to the hand" motion by a Caucasian lady with unkempt hair whom we presume is the owner (an employee would be / should be fired for that bird's nest esp in a bakery/cafe). The cake was then unceremoniously... More

I have never experience such bad service. My wife and I ordered breakfast and waited for over 45 minutes. The breakfast was poorly made and overpriced. Coffee is nothing special. The worst thing is the attitude of the owner. She let you feel that she didn't want your business. Wish I had never been there.

When Saffron was still in Tai Tam and later on the first floor of Stanley Plaza, it was actually quite nice. Since they moved a few years ago, service has gone downhill, prices went up considerably, quality became worse, male owner is rude, tables not cleaned, slow service, often no croissants at breakfast time. There are far better options in... More

You would think that in the morning walking into a bakery cafe one would smell fresh bread baking. Or bagels? Or croissants? Or anything? Nope, not at this bakery cafe at 11am on a Tuesday morning. Very disappointed to have chosen Saffron over McDonalds or Starbucks for my morning coffee. I always try to choose local over chains. But I... More

We dropped in for a quick coffee/drink and were ignored while we waited at the counter. Finally we were acknowledged and were able to order; the total came to around HK$100. Unfortunately we were not able to get our drinks as the waitress informed us that she would not ? could not change our HK$500. ?? a very bizarre way... More

We seldom get down to Stanley so we were very much looking forward to going down there as a family to have breakfast this morning. Saffron LOOKED good so we went in there; I only wish I'd looked at Tripadvisor before going. Michaelf006 sums this place up well: "The drinks are expensive and the food is so so". CHECK. "Miserable... More

The bakery is really typically British, from food to decor. The food is very good but we had a problem with it: my dish came very fast, I ordered mashed and bangers and they were very good. But my fiancé ordered a grill cheese sandwich and tomato soup. It took forever. I was almost done with my plate, he went... More

My boyfriend and I enjoyed afternoon tea at Saffron Bakery Cafe, having been to Saigon for lunch. We ordered 2 breakfast teas and a huge slice of carrot cake. The staff were friendly, the cake was amazing, and there was plenty of space with a really relaxed atmosphere. If you're in Stanley and looking for a pit stop, I'd highly... More

Arrived all the way from central, just to be told at 20:00 on a Friday night that it's already closed ?!?! Somewhat disappointing.

Visited this restaurant in January. It was busy sunday. Ordered bagel with cream cheese charged HK$35. They dont issue receipt. I asked for tap water since their coffee is ridiculously expensive than Starbucks. I happened to eat my ordered bagels with fork and knife. I sliced a part and there, maggots on bagel. I certainly wont recommended this restaurant. Poor... More
