Locals drink their coffee there, hence why it gets so busy. Highly recommend it, you can't go wrong with their... More

I was at Horno San Buenaventura on an early afternoon. Food was great!! I wish I remembered the name of the gentleman who served us, but what a great guy! Me and my boyfriend we ordered 2 delicious sandwiches and 2 cavas; the staff was jolly, friendly and told us a little about the local and the area, very outgoing... More

I don't agree with a previous reviewer... It was not tourists who were invisible here, it was all customers. Life would clearly be easier for the waiting staff if there are none. The food was nice when it did come but this was by far the least friendly place that we visited in Seville.

Very busy and very Spanish. We went fro breakfast and it was good and the service was speedy. Pull out some Spanish phases and you will be ok

I've been here twice so far for ice cream. It was the nicest ice cream I've had in Spain! Although the cafe was packed inside and out the wait wasn't long for service. There seems to be a great range of pastries - not sure of the savoury menu.

After 3 weeks in Seville, found our first place that regarded tourists as invisible. Can't comment on food because after 10 minutes, we gave up and left. Just plain rude.

After repeated visits here, I have to say that what an Anglo traveller would call "slow service" is their trademark. They are friendly ... just slow. It doesn't really seem to matter if they are busy or not. I keep going back though for the tortillas ... just about the best you can get around here.

We went here at lunch time for some pastries as we had walked past it many times. Prime location next to the cathedral. Very busy place with not enough members of staff. Service was very very slow, we nearly left. Pastries were average, ok price.

Yucky place :-( First impressions: filthy. Food was bland, dull & over-priced. Service was very slow, & surly. Feels like a tourist trap - could not recommend.
