5 Cafes In Mallorca To Go To When You’re Hungry For A Cafe
So, you’re wandering around somewhere pretty in Palma de Mallorca, and looking for a cafe because you are hungry. Not a teensy-bit hungry. Mega-hungry. Where to go? So many cafes, so little time – and you’re looking for the one. That’s where #goodguidemallorca comes in. With our finger firmly on the pulse of Palma and beyond, we’ve pinpointed 5 of the best cafes in Mallorca. Let’s go quickly because the sound your rumbling tum is beginning to get on our last nerve. Just sayin’.
1. CLARO in Palma de Mallorca
This easy-going, friendly cafe is in the heart of Santa Catalina, making it the perfect place to stop-off while you’re having a mooch. Whether you head there for a hearty breakfast, brunch or a snack to top you up, you’ll find great food served by friendly staff. We couldn’t get enough of the brilliant breakfast – especially the coffee, but the burgers and cakes need a mention, too. Double thumbs-up.
2. THE BAKERY by Barbara Backenköhler
One of the top comments about Barbara’s gorgeous bakery and cafe in Pollensa is that it’s an oasis of calm, cosiness, and top food for every moment of the day. The cakes are off-the-scale delicious, and eating breakfast or brunch on the tiny terrace is not to be missed. If you’re up for a little celebrity spotting, some of the glitterati have been known to pop in to chill out and enjoy some of the best coffee and food on the north of the island. Pinky promise you’ll love it, too.
3. El Perrito cafe
This popular dog-friendly cafe – el perrito translates as ‘the puppy’ in Spanish – is in the centre of lively Santa Catalina in Palma de Mallorca. Those in the know come back time and again for the freshly prepared food and happy vibes. There’s always an excellent variety of breakfast, brunch, and lunch choices, with vegetarian food-lovers well-catered for. Get your dog-lead, you’ve pulled.
4. Simple Smart Food Bar
The staff at this cool, innovative cafe wear t-shirts declaring ‘not just another juice bar’, and they’re right! Simple Smart Food is the place to go if you’re hungry but still want to keep it light, though. Freshly prepared, tempting food is what’s on the menu and you’re sure to love what’s on offer. From the clean, contemporary decor to the upbeat, sweet-natured staff, we recommend the refreshing smoothies and colourful salads. It has to be said, though, the breakfasts are worth tipping out of bed for, and everything is made to order. There are two bars, one in Santa Catalina and another in the old town. Simple. Smart. Go!
5. Mise En Place in the old town of Palma
Mise en Place is an amazing cafe, and perfectly-placed in Plaza Mayor if you’re visiting Palma de Mallorca for a nosy round. Top of our best-coffee list, the food is presented so beautifully you’ll be going Insta-crazy with your phone. But stop posing long enough to enjoy the freshly-baked bread, if nothing else. The bagels are among some of the best we’ve tried on the island, and the spinach empanadas are right up there, too. If you’re hungry, look no further because #goodguidemallorca has done its homework!
