Unlike speedy in-and-out coffee shops, cafés indulge fantasies of sneaking off through misty European streets paved with pain au chocolat and lined with biscotti parking meters. Indulge in savory street-side fare with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of upscale fare and drinks at Saffron's West End Café. Saffron's menu hosts a heaping helping of burgers and sumptuous sandwiches ($6.50–9.95), including grilled salmon with basil mayo, veggie delight with havarti and pesto, and the Redneck—a combination of corned beef, swiss cheese, coleslaw, and thousand-island dressing served on cinder blocks in Saffron's front yard. Diners can also feast on fresh salads ($7.75–9.75), soups ($3.25–4.50), and flatbread wraps ($6.95–9.75). Saffron's titular sidewalk seating spicies up your meal with primo people watching, and the eclectic indoor dining room juxtaposes its colorful artwork with a black-and-white tiled floor.
