About Us

Safron Bakery & Cafe opened its doors in November 2008 with the desire to bring European-quality pastries, freshly baked breads, and homemade soups, salads, and sandwiches to Hagerstown. With over 20 years of baking experience, owner Al Elmerraji is the mastermind behind our selection of sweet treats, which he bakes fresh early each morning.

At Safron Bakery & Cafe, we try to have something for everyone. Here, the foodie will find French pastries, like flaky chocolate-filled croissants, almandine tarts, and macaron–specialties that can’t be found anywhere else. For lunch, stop by for a sandwich or panini made with fresh meats and cheeses. Vegetarians will find delicious lunch options, like the Veggie Delight, or a salad made with organic lettuce. We’re especially passionate about cakes. If you’ve got a party, birthday, or even a wedding on the horizon, Al would love to make a cake that is sure to taste as good as it looks.

Located just one block North of Robinwood Medical Center in Hagerstown, we’re open 7 days a week. We’ve got plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, so don’t forget to stop by for something sweet!
