Beautiful full Arabic breakfast served in a lovely restaurant by a professional, friendly staff. A great stop after a stroll in Muharraq.

Makes running worthwhile knowing Jenna's is where we're going for breakfast. Royal breakfast for 4, excellent! Everything perfect and very tasty, service excellent as well. Followed by plenty of coffee, great start to the day

A great place to enjoy some local dishes like machboos, balaleet and karak tea. It's a surprisingly trendy place in slightly shabby Muharraq. The delicious chicken machboos was huge and even the two of us could not finish the dish meant for one person. The...leg of chicken was quite small, though.More

We were visiting Bahrain for 3 days arrived to Saffron by Jena Muharraq branch at 10:15 am for breakfast but we were so disappointed to be told that they can’t accept anymore customors as they will close at 10:45 I think it’s not acceptable for...a tourists distination to close without prior notice specially that travellers usually have a tight schedule so to waste one morning reaching a place then suddenly it will close earlier today!! they could have posted this on their instagram account at leastMore

Any local knows that I must eat location and Bahrain is Saffron By jenna. This is now become a go to place for a great Bahraini breakfast and anytime we have visitors we make sure we stop for a meal or coffee and a dessert....There’s nothing on the menu that I wouldn’t try and that I wouldn’t highly recommend. The daily specials are outstanding and the desserts are truly One of a kind and mouthwatering. It was such a pleasure meeting the owner in person I have followed her story for the year and a half that I’ve been in Bahrain and the passion and love she puts into her business is truly evident in her food. I’m a regular for a reason.More

This was my breakfast venue for all guests - a perfect Arab cuisine experience and in a restored historical venue - the old pipes now preserved under a glass floor. It is centrally situated in the Muharraq Souk, so a good place to start before...exploring the environmentMore

The best restaurant to serve Bahraini traditional food specially for Breakfast. I advise to go to the old muharraq suq branch to have the ambiance of historical Bahrain

The Bahraini breakfast was delicious, you get to try many things at once. The service was great and the portion size is too big for 2 people!

I visited this restaurant 2 times with my friends, it is in the middle of old Muharraq area, next to many old bahraini houses and sites to visit, Where you can have breakfast or lunch and then go around the area walking, I advice you...to go there during the winter and avoid the weekend because it gets very crowded , it has a nice seating area built over an old location for making and storing the dates and dates syrup, the service was good, the food was delicious and the cost was reasonable, highly recommended for breakfast.More

We always try to find local places when we travel where the food is good and the experience is something authentic. Saffron was the perfect place! Hidden just off the main stretch of the souq with a sign only in Arabic, we actually walked past...it once before we realized it. The hot food is not on the menu (aside from breakfast) but rather a daily special that is always changing. The food was incredible and very reasonably priced, the service was outstanding and the overall experience was exceptional. As there is the House of Music right across the street, the waiter recommended that we check that out as there would be a live concert that night, free of charge. It was an excellent tip and we loved the concert as well.More
