Our hotel recommended this place to us for quick breakfast. We both had the Mallorca sandwich and a cup of Americano con Leche (America Coffee with Milk). The best way to describe the sandwich is croissant like dusted with powdered sugar for the bread with a variety of "fixins" inside. I had ham, cheese, and egg, and my wife had... More

Since La Mallorquina is still closed for renovations, this Cafeteria is the next best option. The display with all typical sweets just lures you in. Once in, it's a little quaint and dark. Still, our group sat at the counter area and the Staff was very friendly and kid patient. I ordered a piña colada and a mallorca sandwich. Both... More

Come as you are, unrefined food place, that needs a renovation. Servers wear a back & white uniform. Expect waiting time during weekends. Coffee not great--try cuatro sombras instead

I loved the coffee and breakfast. The waiters were courteous and prompt in serving us as soon as we sat down. They even offered to charge my boyfriends phone while we had breakfast.

We were looking for a restaurant after we toured Castillo de San Cristobal and this was a short walk away and on my list to try. The service was very good and fast. We went on a Wednesday at about 4pm. The atmosphere is nice, but casual, good for tourists. We tried the Cafe Mallorca Special sandwich, Chicken Mofungo, Pina... More

Had a quick lunch here on Sept 24 2014. 5 min walk from the cruise terminal. We were looking for a quick cheap easy place to get a ham and cheese sandwich for our 4yr old when we stumbled upon Mallorca. This looks every bit like a typical diner/cafeteria from 30yrs ago. Very unassuming and basic but the food was... More

The food here is delicious. I sat at the counter for two different meals. Both were breakfast. And both were simple but good. The highlight was the Cafe con leche. Tasty and got me amped for a day of walking sites. It came out of a beautiful large antique espresso maker. My only regret is not coming for lunch as... More

It doesn't look like much from the outside. But the food is amazing. Travel back in time to the 50 ' or 60's. Imagine a diner with old school stools and a counter. Waiters cruising by wearing vests and tuxedo bow ties. Pastries in the window. Awesome mood and even better food. I had a Mallorca with bacon and cheese.... More

We were staying at an apartment right off calle luna and would come for breakfast here. My husband loved the ham and cheese Mallorca and I had the one with just butter. One afternoon on the way back to the apartment, we stopped and took some mallorcas from the window to go. So so delicious!! Both times we sat at... More
