SaxSay Cafe: Peruvian Deli in Tamarac Moves to Bigger Location, Changes Name
Together the team has made improvements thanks to customer suggestions from the comment box, such as separating the open kitchen from the dining room -- in the old locations, some customers complained that while they loved eating the food, they didn't love the smell of it on their clothes after leaving -- and changing out the tables and chairs for more comfortable seating. Another issue was the A/C: In the old location, the open kitchen and packed house would often present problems with the store's only air-conditioning unit; here they've preemptively installed additional units.
Currently, the crew is working on expanding the concept event further with a sport's room with pool tables and foosball to watch soccer games and hopefully drink pisco sours and chicanos one day -- because the traditional drinks include pisco, a Peruvian grape brandy, they are awaiting a special license from the state.
"In another two or three months, we are hoping to get into more catering with onsite baptisms and other family events," said Salini. "We have the license, but we haven't been promoting it, because we want to settle in; we went from 1,200 to 4,800 square feet. This place is four times the size of our last location."
