Expert review of Horno San Buenaventura

My favourite breakfast bar in Seville.

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.

Food and drink: 

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).

Ambience: 

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.

Service: 

It is fast and friendly at the bar, but a bit slower at tables.

Location: 

The main location is just across from the cathedral, with two others in the centre.

Price advice: 

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).

Other useful branches: 

There are two other central branches at Carlos Cañal 28 (behind the Plaza Nueva) and Plaza Alfalfa 9.
