For the peaceful, welcoming atmosphere

In a lively and bustling city like Barcelona, it’s always helpful to have somewhere to get away from it all, a quiet and refreshing hideaway where you can recover from all the excitement! Wander into the heart of the Born and take a seat on one of the comfortable sofas at Café Bornet. You know you want to!

Café Bornet: a peaceful haven

A hidden gem

Walking around Barcelona’s Old Town is a bit like going on a treasure hunt. From designer boutiques to artist’s workshops via any number of little restaurants, there are good surprises around almost every corner!

The Born quarter is a maze of little side-streets. Tucked away down one of its mysterious and historic alleyways, Café Bornet is a particularly good spot for a short (or long) break.

Peaceful atmosphere

Café Bornet

The first thing you’ll notice on entering is the calm atmosphere! No loud noises here – just the clinking of cups and lowered voices. The soft lighting, low tables, wooden furniture, armchairs and sofas add a warm and comfortable feel, set off by the rustic stone walls.

Whether you’re looking for a place to take someone special, somewhere to meet up with friends or a little corner of calm just for you, the Bornet is just what you need.

  • During the daytime, Café Bornet is also a great place for work or study, with free wifi for customers.
  • Animals are allowed.
  • Barcelona’s Picasso Museum is just around the corner, so this is a great place to stop off before or after your visit!
  • If you’re looking for somewhere with a lively and festive feel, you’ll be better off somewhere else – try  Xampanyeria or Bormuth, which are both nearby.

Café Bornet: the menu

Café Bornet offers a whole range of hot drinks, including tea and coffee, but also fruit juices and sodas. Evening visitors can also pick from a range of wines, beers or cocktails.

Café Bornet drinks

Price-wise, allow around 3 – 4 euros for a glass of wine, 7 – 8 euros for a cocktail. Something for every budget!
