“Nice place for coffee and snacks”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

This is a very pleasant establishment where the service was good without being obtrusive. Everything was very clean and the coffee and snacks we had were very nice, albeit a little on the expensive side. It is in an excellent central location which possibly accounts for the pricing. One can stay there as long as one wishes, watching the football on TV, reading a paper or whatever, without being hurried to free up the table. A good experience and if in San Jose again we would go back to this cafe.

“The food is good but noting out of the ordinary”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

Most of the food is very typical and the dishes that were different weren't very good. The service is excellant.

“Nice place for coffee and savory food”
Reviewed 26 April 2013

Azafran is one of those cafeterias where you can sit down and read a book while taking coffee or a nice pastry, however you can also have a really tasty meal. I've gone there several times and I always ask for the fetuccini with squash and mushrooms, a real delight. The prices are fair, a little bit over the top, but with a good value deal comparing it to similar cafeterias.

“Good stop”
Reviewed 7 March 2013

If you are in Costa Rica you must visit Avenida Central and while you are there stop for coffee and dessert at Azafaran. Very clean, cozy with lots of yummy stuff. I recommend it.

“Great place!”
Reviewed 27 January 2013

For lunch or coffee, this place does not disappoint. Try the Azafran cake. It's spongy and has nice flavors.
