Ca'n Joan de s'Aigo is truly the best traditional Mallorcan café in the heart of Palma. It has been standing there for 314 years so far and it has two branches, different from each other in terms of design. The one in Carrer Can Sanç is more low-key, chilled, more rural in a way, even if it is in the... More

We were recommended this place as it is a local favourite (albeit they normally visit for hot chocolate in the winter not in September in 30 degrees!). The hot chocolate itself was amazing. It was a thick sumptuous cup of molten milk chocolate. if you don't have a sweet tooth, don't even bother! It doesn't taste like it has added... More

If you have to visit something in Mallorca, you MUST go there!! An amazing place, very typical (there are 3 different pastries all around the town) and very very delicious! My advice: take an enseimada, a cuarto, an ice cream (my favorite ranked: hazelnuts, strawberries, almond...) and a hot chocolate... So yummy!!!

Try the Leche Merengada flavour with a freshly backed quarto; it is close to heavenly. Alternatively, the almond or hazelnut flavours are equally good. All handmade ice creams and typical of the island.

I really enjoyed the pastries and coffee in this restaurant. I had the ensaimada con crema and it was absolutely divine, I could've eaten a dozen. The location is cozy, the decor charming and the only setback was the pitiful customer service. I don't expect prompt, overly friendly service in Spain but still, this was pretty shabby. After sitting at... More

I adore the food here. Every time we visit Mallorca we try to fit in a couple if visits. The place is rammed with locals in the winter and in the summer people queue to collect their ensaimadas to take away. I'm more of a fan on the cuatos, but the new chocolate ensaimadas were a hit with my kids.... More

In case you are looking for a place to rest or to get a tasty power-treat and good coffee to start the day, then this is the place to go. If its different local pastries with or combined with ice-cream...its all delicious. And...its cheap. We had 3 different snacks and 2 coffees for less than 10 €. The guy serving... More

Great atmosphere, a little bit of Art Noveau flair, very stylish. But it is the pastry (famous Ensaimadas) that leaves an overwhelming impression: light, puffy and very very tasty. We tried Ensaimadas with pumpkin (savoury). Delicious! Staff is nice, although you have to try some effort to catch their attention sometime))) Very reasonably priced. Other sweets in the vitrine looked... More

Ca'n Joan de S'Aigo is one of the places in Mallorca you can't miss. I always stop by when I am around. The place is nice and well decorated, it is not expensive at all and it is the perfect place to taste the typical Majorcan pastries such as the ensaimada, cuarto, gató or coca de patata. If you are... More

My Mallorquin husband 75 years old living in UK just loves this place, so many happy memories of his childhood shared each time we revisit Palma. The Almond and Haslenut ice cream is a favourite with coca or. Emsaimada........to die for!
