It really comes down to what fonts you want to use, as I’m pretty sure they vary between font-face and Google Fonts. But I personally would go with Google, since their collection is really only the best of the best. Also it’s quicker to setup and doesn’t involve JS. I’m sure it’s a little more sound in terms of licensing and distribution via ThemeForest as well.

Google also uses @font-face if i’m not mistaking.. So that’s no difference on speed/looks between Google Fonts and @font-face embedding. The only different is that it’s simpler for your clients to choose a font from a predefined library than to create their own custom font.. But again, with Google you’re limited to a number of fonts, and you can’t change that.

So, if you’re just trying to use some basic fonts and let users change their fonts just by checking a list, go with Google. Otherwise, if you want fancy fonts, go with @font-face.
