More room to move!

Wild Saffron conference room, meeting room
Wild Saffron is excited to now offer a new space for customers. The upstairs room at Wild Saffron has been transformed into an area for conferences, business meetings or simply diners looking for a quiet space to eat.

The air-conditioned room caters for a maximum of 30 people and is available to hire out for half-day or full-day conferences. With gourmet food, drinks and coffee on hand, it is the perfect venue for group meetings. An electronic whiteboard will also be installed before the end of February 2013.

Tis the season…to fill your Christmas stockings

Come into Wild Saffron to choose from a great selection of fun, quirky and cute gifts for Christmas. There are plenty of presents for the young and young at heart, including:

  • musical instruments

Winners are grinners!

The Wild Saffron team was recognised for its hard work and great coffee at the 2012 SA Regional Barista Competition in Port Pirie yesterday.

Wild Saffron owner Heather Pretlove and barista Alli Kocsis travelled north for a ‘barista-off’ and to hear the announcement of several awards…many of which they won!

Alli won both the 2012 Clare Valley Barista of the Year Award and the People’s Choice Award! And to top off a day of triumph, Wild Saffron won the Clare Valley Region Best Café Atmosphere of the Year award.

Congratulations to Alli and thank you to all our valued customers who voted during September and October this year. Time to celebrate…with a coffee!

All the fun and photos of our Middle East Asian Night

It was a night to remember – for the food, wine, company…and belly dancing, of course! Wild Saffron’s Middle East Asian night was another fabulously fun Friday night gig, with our guests enjoying the tastes of Asia and sounds of Paul McLeod with the Swinging Cats of Casablanca. And it wasn’t long before we were all entertained with some belly dancing action on the dance floor. Here are a few photos of the night. Click here to view more pics on Facebook.
