Web site advertising, sign on door, and telephone message says hours are 7 AM to 9 PM Tues thru Sun. We drove 20 miles from West Ashley on Fri evening but they were closed at 7 PM. Thought we would try again Sun but call 1st to understand hours. No phone answer but message still says open 7 AM to 9 PM. Finally called emergency number and find they closed at 3 PM. This is needlessly confusing and troublesome to potential customers not yet familiar that wants to try. We won't try again.
I have been here many times but today will be the last. Apparently the chef was late and having a bad day so the opening time was not as posted on the door. A verbal attack with profanity by a hysterical chef rather than an explanation is not the way to ensure a repeat customer.
The veggie pita was awful...a few veggies with spaghetti sauce poured over it. Just tasteless for around $9.
Ok, can you call it a bakery if there are no actual baked goods in said store? The owner had no menu other than a large list of coffees to purchase, a few berries with chocolate, and one pastry. Apparently, you have to go to the website and order in advance.. this seems to defeat the purpose of having a storefront, with a bunch of empty cases. Not to mention the owner was less than forthcoming regarding POTENTIAL offerings. Good luck with that. Charleston will remain a bakery-free city. Saffron a can barely be called a bakery with the flavorless items that they do offer.
