About Us

Safran Cafe is located in the heart of Newmarket and offers a relaxed mediterranean atmosphere with alfresco dining and cozy indoor dining options.

At Safran we are influenced by the Mediterranean way of cooking, the changing seasons and the abundance of New Zealand produce. Our meat, fish and seafood are cooked on the chargrill and wood-fire then paired with the best cheeses, herbs and flavours.

“The eggplant is unmissable, cooked until all resistance has disappeared and served with tahini and cauli puree, pine nuts and white raisins. The chicken is better than restaurant chicken should ever be — juicy and roasty and dotted with savoury wild mushrooms.” — Qemal, Head Chef, Safran

Our Newmarket, Auckland, dining room is open seven days, from early breakfast till late. For private events, reservations or any other questions, please contact us.

Welcome to the purest form of Mediterranean hospitality in Auckland.
