“Choppy bubbly YUMMMM!! Put it in your TUMMMMM! One more second and then...”
Saffron, Super Paper Mario

Saffron is a character in Super Paper Mario. She is a chef who runs Sweet Smiles, a restaurant located on the first floor of Flipside. She can cook Mario and the other heroes various recipes if they bring her items. Her name comes from a spice of the same name that is grown mostly in southern Asia and is primarily used as an ingredient in various dishes. Its taste is recognized as "metallic honey" by some, which may parallel Saffron's sweet personality. Saffron's benevolence may also reflect that of Tayce T., the cook in the original Paper Mario.

Saffron, like all other Flipside residents, has a doppelgänger who lives in Flopside; her name is Dyllis.Some differences between the two is that Saffron will only cook recipes that require one ingredient, while Dyllis cooks recipes that require two, and that Dyllis has a more German accent. During the game, Saffron comes to Mario's aid by cooking him a Spicy Soup in order to revive Princess Peach after she unexpectedly falls into Flipside.

According to Carson, Merlon was once in love with Saffron. She told him she would go out with him if he could finish a Saffron Special Galactic Meal. Merlon had finished all but a pit of parsley when he heard that an injured girl had appeared in Flipside and rushed to her aid, forfeiting the challenge.
