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!

Looking for our hotel we found this by accident. Traditional inside with friendly staff. A quick scan over the menu and as we'd already eaten we ordered some ice cream. It was the best ice cream we had all week and the other food that was being served looked great. Would come back here.

While technically not a restaurant, this historic 314-year-old cafe (it was established in 1700) is a Majorcan landmark worth braving the labyrinth of Palma’s old quarters for – something we actually did 8 hours before our flight being the gutsy young wanderers that we were (as we’d like to think, anyway). We were actually directed to this establishment by a... More

This is a simple, yet traditional, and nice place. You come here for their tasty water-based ice cream and their "ensaïmades" and "quarto". I tasted the Almonds and the Hazelnut flavors and they were both super tasty. This place is so famous and traditional that many locals come often, therefore you should really not miss this experience if you ever... More

Pastries here are fabulous and so is the lively atmosphere for breakfast. There always seems to be a large group in when we have visited and the noise adds to the experience. I've never had ice cream for breakfast but plenty of people seem to but as a family we've worked our way through all of the pastry options and... More

TIPS: - try the plain ensaimadas, and also the apricot, cream and sobrasada (this one is savoury, with chorizo paste) - have a nice thick hot chocolate THE GOOD: truly the best ensaimadas in the whole of Mallorca. Hands down. They have no competition at this level. There's no point even comparing. It's like having an amazing cappuccino in the... More

És un dels locals més típics de la ciutat i, hi vaig des de petit, la qualitat s'ha mantingut invariable al llarg dels anys. El primer que s'ha de tenir en compte és que sempre hi ha cua, és d'aquells llocs que és molt turístic marescudament. En segón lloc dir que el servei tot i que no és molt simpàtic... More

Its very nice to be somewhere traditional and not at all touristy, when ever We have been there are plenty of locals in there.... More

This is one of the most traditional cafes in Palma. They serve the popular ensaimadas, ice creams and good cafes. It's worth a visit.
