“Nice ambiance but breakfast was disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

It's a nice cafe close to the beach, but breakfast can't be its best suit. Coffee was good. Omelet was overdone with odd-tasting jamon (one of four meat choices). "Toast" was grilled bread - that is, grilled (greasy) on one side and plain on the other side. "Scrambled" eggs - certainly not light & fluffy. More like cook stirred the egg mixture a couple of times and threw it on the plate. Bacon was average. Potatoes were good, including some purple ones.

“We had breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

On our last day at Rehoboth we decided to have breakfast at Cafe Azafran. This was a great decision we had made. The coffee was excellent as was the food. I heard it gets crowded but Sunday it was empty. This spot reminded me of a nice bed & breakfast location. I will be back.

“Great Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Went here for breakfast again on our annual trip to Rehoboth Beach. I should have written last year. I love this place for breakfast. The staff is always cheery and helpful. The breakfast is more than just the usual eggs 'n stuff. They kick it up a notch with interesting flavors, spices and other ingredients. The seating in the back "porch" area is nice, feels like you're outside. The seating in the front is fun to watch the world go by. Best breakfast in town with great staff, don't miss it.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

I went in with my mom and my sister and had a delicious dinner on the patio. The shrimp sauté is my favorite tapas from the menu...we also had duck and taragona from the large plates. The food is amazingly fresh and very tasty

“The best restaurant at the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We have been to Cafe Azafran twice. This is our new favortie restaurant at the beach (and there are a lot of fabulous restaurants). Here's why:
1. Food is creative in terms of ingredients & seasonings.
2. Menu includes foods everyone loves - something for everyone (meat, no meat, etc)
3. Favorites small plates - Haricot vert w/gorgonzola & toasted hazelnuts;
- Short rib sliders w/roasted red peppers and onions
- Scallops (ridiculously huge and tasty).
4. Favorite large plate - Veal tenderloin. The veal was thick, melt in your mouth & so flavorful.
5. Great atmosphere both indoors (nice artwork, amazing aromas) & out (patio next to garden).
6. Staff is superb.
7. They take reservations!
