Mediterranean fusion meets California healthy in our interpretation of how food should be: fresh, healthy, organic, locally grown, and a delight to your taste buds. Whether you're looking for a quick bite or a leisurely gathering with friends, Saffron Café will feed your body and soul with house-made, wholesome fare.
Our offerings include build-your-own salads, bowls with your choice of saffron basmati or brown rice, grilled paninis, soups, and small bites with artisan breads. Hearkening to our Persian heritage, it is a pleasure to offer you some of the dishes we grew up with, and loved, as children.
Our goal is to bring you the freshest, highest quality, and seasonal ingredients to make your meal an event. Top it all off with some of the best ice cream in town.
As the Persians say, “Noosh-e jan.”
May your soul be nourished by
what you are eating.
