Ice Cream and birdsong

Stopped by for a bowl of ice cream and a cake after a walk round the old town. Wow! This little parlour was hard to find in the back streets but worth the hunt. With 300 years of history and possibly the birthplace of modern ice cream (oh yes) it looks as old as it is with quaint coloured glass... read more

A local friend brought me here for try quartos and ensaimadas - traditional Mallorcan specialities. Delicious and a great atmosphere. In the middle of August tourist season, the place was packed with locals.

We found this restaurant in tripadvisor and decided to visit this amazing place. They have the best ensaimada with custard in mallorca pair it with their hot chocolate and it is heaven in my mouth! My partner is thrilled with their strawberry gelado it is refreshing and definitely home made. We came back the day after before we came back... More

Traditional bar for having breakfast or a sweet meal at any time of the day. The ensaimades are great and the place keeps an oldy atmosphere as time has forgotten about it.

Traditional place in Palma de Mallorca. I recomend it to try ensaimadas-cuartos-ice cream... a great place for families! But a bit full of people... cause its famous!

My Spanish partner loves sweets and what better place than to visit a classic joint like this? The service and the place definately needs a refreshing touch but I think that was one of the reason why they are so busy as not many places look like this anymore. The BEST part of this place is of course their ensaimaldas... More

Not easy to find. Became a challenge as we walked round in circles. Excellent coffee. The ensaimada was delicious.....so ordered another with custard creme in but this wasn't as nice. Didn't know how to say 'soggy bottom' in Spanish so ate it! Really miserable waiters but glad we went. Ice cream in drinking glasses. Very good value and very oldey... More

Everything you read about the ice cream here is true! It's great! Many flavors to choose from. A must stop when in Palma.

We actually only made a quick stop here, as we had some great stories about both the pastries, the ice and the coffee! Let me just confirm that the Ensaimada is to die for! The Merengue ice is very nice and the espresso so strong that I will not blink for a fortnight :-) The interior is elegant and breaths... More

I am not exaggerating when I say that my family and I are a bit obsessed with this place. The "helados" is fantastic. Every flavor is super, but the chocolate, strawberry and cafe are out of this world. We also live the gato (almond cake). The ensaimadas are also great if you can catch them while still warm!
