Expert review of Horno San Buenaventura
The Horno San Buenaventura is a local institution and has several locations around Sevilla, which not only serve up a fabulous breakfast but also have an excellent deli counter with a wide selection of cheeses, cured meats and prepared foods for takeaway. Although my favourite location (just across from the cathedral) has a lovely terrace and a spacious dining area upstairs, I prefer to belly up to the bar with the locals and enjoy my breakfast there.
You can choose from a variety of breads that can be toasted – if you don't specify you'll be given a mollette, which is a soft flat bun – and then decide on a topping: butter, olive oil, jam, fresh tomato, jamon, tortilla, manchego cheese...or one of my favourites when I'm really hungry is lomo al Jerez, a herb and sherry infused slow roasted pork roll. Breakfast is served until noon and tapas after 1pm. It also serves the best coffee in town (it's the only bar I know that uses fresh milk, not UHT).
It is lively and bustling. If there's no space at the bar or tables just wait a few minutes as the turnover is quite fast.
It is fast and friendly at the bar, but a bit slower at tables.
The main location is just across from the cathedral, with two others in the centre.
Breakfast with toast, coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice should cost about 5 euros, depending on the topping you choose (jamón serrano will be more expensive than butter and jam).
There are two other central branches at Carlos Cañal 28 (behind the Plaza Nueva) and Plaza Alfalfa 9.
