OK, so I dined there last year and remembered it had been very good to excellent; Wrong! This year it was 3+ times as good! It was Beyond-Excellent! It was Exceptional! What I'm talking about is their Vegetable Plate Entree! Now, being Vegan, I have had Veggie-Plates here, there and coast-to-coast; some mediocre others good and a few excellent. However, the Vegetable-Plate served to me at Cafe Azfran "rocked!" it was beyond excellent - it was Exceptional in every way! I have only had a very few of that quality and caliber! Veggies: a wonderful assortment of perfectly-roasted veggies ranging from 3 varieties of fingerling potatoes to excellent asparagus to broccoli slices to ... you get the idea. And, Presentation: was simply Gorgeous! Should have brought my camera or Droid so I could email a photo to friends! The wine? Well I arrived at Happy Hour and they were serving a very nice Tempranillo that turned out to be an excellent companion to my Exceptional Vegetable-Plate. As a house-provide appetizer, my glass of water arrived with a nice assortment of olives and bread (I did check ingredients for the bread = OK for me as a Vegan). Service: wonderful! understated, unobtrusive but always available. I really had a super-wonderful dining experience at Cafe Azfran. Located a very short one block from the Boardwalk. Hint: if dining after Happy Hour or on weekends you should really get reservations. NOTE: the Vegetable-Plate is the only identifiably Vegan item on the menu -- and you need to tell your server "no butter -- no dairy" for the dish to arrive "Vegan". But they do seem to know "Vegan" when it's mentioned and are open to tailoring other menu items, too. PS: Listening to the "talk" at other tables, this is THE place for upscale dining by the locals and tourists who are "in-the-know". They're one block from Rehoboth's main & tourist-y street but in a quiet area. Do add some time to explore all the cute shops on the same street and then go to the Boardwalk. Very-Highly recommend Cafe Azfran to Vegans! Please dine Vegan (they do feed carnivores too <grin> ); and Enjoy! PPS: I ate there twice on this trip -- and will provide a separate review about their Tapas - ( Hint: it was Super! so good it deserves a review all its own! )
