Time Out Says

Considering Saffron by Jena Bakery has been named Best Bahraini Restaurant for three years in a row at the Time Out Bahrain Restaurant Awards, it’s no wonder that the food is excellent, and when it comes to finding a stand-out Bahraini breakfast, there’s no better place to look. The original branch of Saffron (or Za’fran in Arabic) is located in the heart of Souq Al Qaysariya, a renovated area of Muharraq, and was conceived by Narise Qambar, who is also behind the hugely popular Jena Bakery, in collaboration with the Bahrain Authority of Culture and Antiquities. This particular venue is a transformed, traditional Bahraini house, boasting a glass floor under which a traditional date press lies preserved. In Manama, you’ll find a smaller, more modern branch in the Bab Al Bahrain Mall and another located in the magnificent Riffa Fort, where you can spend hours working your way through the fantastic Bahraini breakfast, gazing out at the surrounding Haniniya valley. You have one choice of breakfast, but one platter is more than enough to feed two hungry patrons. It comes with eggs and tomato, foul, balaleet and plenty more traditional choices, which are delicious. For a cultural experience and a true taste of what Bahrain has to offer, Saffron should top your list.
