New Cafe in Town

After getting my lovely lady locks highlighted and trimmed by Cherie Savoie at her downtown Pomona salon, I meandered over to Saffron, downtown Pomona's newest eatery.

Located at 141 W. Fourth Street, Saffron offers an always-changing menu of soups, sandwiches, and baked goodies. I chased my tasty turkey, bacon, and chedder panini with a chocolate chip cookie bar. Both were delicious.

There are a couple other Saffrons in the area (San Dimas and Riverside). I don't yet see the Pomona location, which opened just last week, listed on the website, but this is definitely the same company.

Let's show them a little Pomona hospitality!

I parked near there on Sunday (while at the Fox) and noted that the sign indicated that they had very limited hours. It looks like it's mainly a lunch spot. Being behind the Fox on Fourth St. will make it somewhat exclusive as you really have to know it's there.

It's in the old Curves / Iris Florist location.

I'll be curious to see how closely they stick to the posted hours. I was in there after 2PM -- the posted closing time -- and got served without a second thought (and two other parties came in while I was waiting for my order). Perhaps they'll modify hours once they get a better sense of demand?
