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.
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.
Price-wise, allow around 3 – 4 euros for a glass of wine, 7 – 8 euros for a cocktail. Something for every budget!
- The set breakfast is a bargain, with coffee, orange juice and a piece of cake from €3!
