This is a great choice for a snack, light lunch or breakfast. Food was fresh and service was prompt and friendly. We ate here twice, ordering croissants, fruit cups, coffee and tapas-style sandwiches. All were good and reasonably priced. I would eat here again.

We went there in the afternoon, for coffee and a snack. None of the staff seemed a bit interested in taking our order and we almost had to knock one of them on the shoulder when we wanted to pay. One of our coffees never came and the cakes were nothing special. Good coffee, though, says my friend who actually... More

This is a chain with a number of locations around Barcelona, so I can't speak about all of them. I can say that their outlet on Rambla Catalunya (#82), near Carrer Mallorca is excellent. The service is quick and efficient and the staff seem to be sincerely happy with their jobs, a very pleasant atmosphere. the orange juice is delicious... More

Great spot for a quick pastry and coffee, reasonably priced. The croissant with ham and cheese is really good and of course the fresh squeezed orange juice can't be beat.

Although the majority of occasions that I have been to el Fornet and it´s various branches, I havent had trouble, I would say definitely avoid the one in calle Calbet (near placa francesc macia). The woman in charge has no idea of customer service and went out of her way to make me feel bad cause I mentioned that the... More

We frequented the branch on Ramblas de Catalunya. Great breakfast pastries, coffee and they squeezed the oranges right bin front of us. We also had their prepared sandwiches which were tasty.

We used the branch near our hotel for a reasonably priced breakfast each morning of our stay, sampling our way through their range of pastries. By the end of our 5 day stay, I had learnt the words for butter, jam and orange juice (not sure whether Catalan or Spanish though!). The ladies in the cafe were pleasant and dealt... More
