We were taken here years ago by a friend from Mallorca and have returned every time we are in Palma. It is very difficult to find down a side street in the heart of old Palma. The café has been going for over 300 years. with traditional blue tiles on the walls. The specialities include Ensaimadas and home made ice... More

You can't come to Palma and not go to ca'n Joan de s'Aigo. the "cuartos" the hot chocolate, the ambiance... There isn't anything quite like it. Go to the original place, not the modern one.

A fabulous place, with charm and character. You will want to keep going back to try everything on the menu but will probably keep getting the traditional almond ice cream. Service is good, though you'll hope that one of the large tour groups doesn't land in while you are there.

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
