“Good fresh FOOD!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

My wife had a delightful brunch at Saffron. I had the Iranian dish and my wife had the French Toast and both were delicious. It is so refreshing to see a cosmopolitan cafe open up in Port elgin and we wish them much success. Highly recommended for fresh ingredients, hot food and delish coffee. The young lady who served us knew her stuff. A credit...to Port Elgin!!

“The perfect spot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2013

This restaurant is fantastic. It is not your traditional food, so if you aren't up for eating something besides a burger and fries or eggs and toast take a look at the menu first before sitting down. (If you can find a table that is!). Everyone is so polite and helpful and the food is amazing... everytime! Chick pea doubles and Bollywood Benedict are my recommendations... but everything is great!

“Amazing Sunday breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

I decided to visit Saffron based on Trip Advisor reviews. I learned that Sunday is an all day breakfast event from 9 to 2pm with regular lunch/dinner not being available on that day of the week. Initially I decided against going but changed my mind after hearing about the daily special. Tortilla shelled Ranchero style dish with pulled pork, mango, cheese, an awesome hot relish with 2 fried eggs on top. Incredibly tasty!! My first time to this restaurant and planning many returns to taste the rest of the eclectic looking menu.
Kudos to the three very kind and helpful ladies that own the place. A 9.5 out if 10 in my book today and I'm picky!

“A great breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Service was great, food piping hot, and spicy. A most unusual breakfast, a great experience! The cook was happy to oblige by not putting spicy sauce on one order of Bollywood Benedict.
The menu was varied and the coffee delicious!

“Very interesting menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

Had lunch on their patio recently. A lovely oasis out the back door of an ordinary restaurant in a small strip mall. Was shocked when we walked through the door. Ordered the Falafel Wrap which was supposed to come with a tossed salad but salad was actually a chick pea salad. Well presented & tasty. Menu stated 3 crispy falafels but they were on soggy side & it seemed like one large patty. I personally like crispness in a falafel. Lots of other interesting things on menu. Not for the person who likes a burger & fries. I will return.
