Saffron Cafe Restaurant Review: Hidden a few steps from the edge of downtown is Saffron Cafe, offering well-seasoned Moroccan cuisine. Start with the cinnamon-scented bastilla, a traditional sweet and savory pastry stuffed with chicken and roasted almonds. First-timers should try the classic tagine, a flavorful stew featuring lamb or chicken that's slowly cooked with vegetables and fruits in a conical ceramic pot and served over couscous. There are several vegetarian options, too. Soups range from saffron to a ginger-rich chicken version. Kebabs may be ordered over couscous or potatoes. The wine and beer lists, while limited, complement the dishes. For dessert, consider the mascarpone layer cake, although it’s difficult to pass up the crisp and generous pieces of baklava with a cup of green tea.
