It was just after 2pm after we had a good stroll in Stanley. Saw this Saffron and thought we would give it a try. The bakery stuff "seems" freshly made but it was a disaster once we went for the chicken pie, a croissant and 2 mochas. The bill came to about $150.00.The staff took our chicken pie and put into the MICROWAVE!!! A "Freshly Made" pie does not need to be headed up in the microwave!!!  Apparently THIS is NOT made fresh!!! And the taste was really STALE!!!  We were very disappointed with the Chicken Pie. And if you take a good look at the rest of the salads... they don't appear to be freshly made either.However, we have to say the Croissant was good. A bit on the over-baked side. Yup. It is much darker than your normal croissants. Overall the place is very messy...with toys and books and everything lying about everywhere. They wanted to create a "out-townish" look - but unfortunately it's turned out to be more like "trashy" look.Service-wise was ok. Nothing to brat about. You can see they are short-staff...as it took quite a long time for them to serve a Microwaved Pie. Repeat??? NO!! Will try other spots in Stanley... continue reading

每次來赤柱都喜歡喝一杯咖啡, 四周有這麼多選擇, 自然就不會去 STAR 或 PAC 字頭的分店了...Saffron 是個人喜歡的一家, 地方較大, 坐得較舒服, 沒有美式連鎖的迫迫夾夾感覺, 昨天坐了一個多小時, 也沒有人來趕你走, 實在難得... 本來想喂 Flat White 的, 但不知何故 Flat White 比 Latte 貴 10 蚊... 我想不通原因, 因此就要了 Latte 算了, 咖啡很香實在不錯... 再叫了一個 Ham & Cheese Crossiant. 麵包比現在時興的牛角飽實在, 咬下去不是一陣風的... 而芝士及火腿也落足料, 2 人一份也可以 continue reading

Saffron是我每次到赤柱也想起的店,因為這裡的食物,夠晒外國人home made食物招待朋友的的「自家感覺」。以前在一樓,現搬到地下,地方大了不了。現在真是適合外籍人客,與小朋友的”天地”。看見琳瑯滿目的餅食,要取捨太多,也揀了三樣東西。Cinnamon Roll,沒有玉桂味,麵包實崩崩,好像隔夜似的,唔好食。Croissant,酥皮不是一層層,內裡沒牛油香,有點半麵包feel。皮再焗一焗後,仍是韌的。現在是追求優質croissant、優質鬆脆的酥皮年代,這種已不入流了。紅莓麥粿bar,很甜,有朕索膠味。又係唔好食。好失望,以前幫襯過兩次,都滿意,現在差了那麼多!? continue reading

Before I entered the café, the vintage arcade had already grasped my attention. For those who have been to the UK, they must find the decor rather familiar, as the posters and postcards can be found everywhere in flea markets or some little boutique out there. Still, the collection in this shop is not really large compared to mine at home . Anyway, I do fancy the decor.The counter of Saffron was filled with various pastries, cakes and bread. I wish I had a bigger stomach to try them all. After some ruthless screening, I picked my all-time favourite apple tart, which coincidentally was the signature dish of Saffron, and the equally irresistible caramel slice.The apple tart had a rather “humble” look; it was like the homemade one you see in TV programmes. But I suppose we should judge by its inner beauty instead of appearance. If you are a butter-lover, you will like it. For me, I indulged in every golden-baked and buttery pastry. However, the mashed apple fillings of this tart were a bit too sweet and not generous enough. I also prefer to have some cinnamon favour with a bit apple dices mixed in the fillings. Caramel slices usually have three layers: chocolate, caramel and shortbread. This one was a bit different as the shortbread layer replaced by a chewy and hard layer which I was not sure what it was. The chocolate and caramel layers were smooth and tasty. Their thinness could not satisfy me, though. Apparently, I have conformed to the British insistence of having as much chocolate and caramel in their caramel slices without considering the obvious side effects of taking too much sugar. It is always joyful to indulge in the delicious yet evil food. Calories concern? We will come to this later... Let me satisfy my appetite first!CM’s raspberry slice was also rich in butter smell. Raspberry filling was a bit sticky with a note of sour. Its texture was like thick raspberry paste. Saffron’s homepage said it offers homemade jam for sale, but unfortunately I did not see them that day. What a pity!Coffee was Saffron’s weakest link. The over-extracted espresso was way too bitter and the milk foam was a failure. The bubbles were too large and not enduring. That’s the kind of foam I dislike most.There were still a lot that I would like to try, but Stanley is a bit far away for me. Saffron’s branches, situated at the Peak and Repulse Bay, are equally inconvenient. Next time, perhaps I will reserve the stomach for the appealing salad and pies! continue reading

見食評不錯,便遠道而來試一試!叫了一個牛肉批$55,(大小跟一般麵包店差不多,咁嘅價錢一定有d期望,咬落去係熱,但酥皮唔香又唔脆,酥皮極難食.另叫了一杯cappuccino$30,味道一般! continue reading
