The food here is excellent, especially the desserts. However to be in a rush, it takes the wait staff an additional 15 minutes to bring your check.

At a reasonable price. Must try the Ensalada Azafrán! And if you're into sweets, they have some of the best desserts in town.

I have long been fan of Queque Azafrán. No other place bakes a cake like this one. So soft, and the creamy frosting, yet not so heavy on the tummy... It is a little pricey... but the rest is great! I strongly recommend!More

If you pay $10 for a fast food combo, you better go to Azafrán and get real food for about the same price. Try the daily special, which comes with a drink and you'll be fully satisfied.
