Moroccan mainstay Saffron Cafe serves entrees such as Paella, Shawarma, chicken Marsala and Lamb Honey.

From the restaurant's website:

"Owner Anas Sentissi brings years of restaurant experience and his family's secret tiramisu recipe. Sentissi has transformed the quaint cafe into an authentic Moroccan experience. The chandeliers, table settings, mirrors and other decor are straight from Morocco. The menu features delicious Moroccan specialties including traditional tajines (Moroccan stews), kababs, gyros, pasta, paella (seafood, vegetables, chicken and saffron rice), desserts and more."

 

Beer and wine available. Serving lunch Mon-Fri, dinner nightly.

 

"For an introduction to Moroccan cuisine, try the tanjines, named for the vessels in which they are served, which trap the steam from the hot meats to create a flavorful broth. We like the ginger chicken tanjine, a roasted half chicken seasoned with onion, garlic, ginger, and saffron and punctuated with tart bites of pickled lemon."
