“Excellent Choice for Breakfast & Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

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 and is squeezed in front of you...doesn't get fresher than that. They have a great selection of baked goods and sandwiches for breakfast, lunch or takeaway...including a delicious warm "panuelo jamon queso" (flasky croissant stuffed with ham and gooey melted cheese); perfect to get you started on a day of "rambling the Ramblas."

“Great breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014 via mobile

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.

“bad customer service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

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 soup was too salty. I´m not sure if it´s a franchise or that´s the policy of the company... I sincerely hope not. Having asked if it was possible to change it she proceeded to say "well no one else have ever complained" "that´s just personal taste, it´s our bestseller...etc" and "If you dont eat it i´ll have to throw it away"... I was basically attacked for mentioning something. The rest of the waitresses were nice and helpful though.. unfortunately under her "management" you may not have a good experience.

“Fresh squeezed OJ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

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.
