In the title compound, C12H9NO3, the benzoate and furan rings are almost coplanar, making a dihedral angle of 11.68(9)°. The twist angle between the-COO group and the benzene ring is only 2.79(16)°. In the crystal, molecules are linked by C-H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming chains along [100]. The molecules stack in a herringbone fashion and inversion-related chains are linked by offset π-π interactions [intercentroid distance = 3.931(1)Å], forming ribbons propagating along the a-axis direction.
