Stopped in here for breakfast after getting off of the cruise ship and we were glad we did! The food was absolutely delicious and a great taste of local food at a very reasonable price. My husband and I split a ham, egg and cheese mallorca and then tasted a couple of pastries! Oh my goodness, they were delicious!! Our... More

After being disappointed with the service at La Bombonera, we landed here. Wonderful service and delicious mallorcas. I need say no more. Skip the other one and come straight here!

We ate here for breakfast twice. The first time was on a week end and a gentleman was playing music on the trumpet. He was quite good. The food was good. Lots of locals and tourists. Excellent choice of pastries in window. Highly recommend. Prices good.

Not a fancy place, but very cozy and great food. We went here for breakfast one morning and I got the special Mallorca Sandwich and it was so good. Everyone enjoyed their food a lot. Our service was good, and the danish fresh. I liked that when you order a drink (soda) they give you a glass of ice and... More

Good service clean and fast, gentle staff. Get early less the wait. Musician at the door which is nice. Good food to jumpstart a day to walk all around the spannish old colonial stronghold. One of the first towns of the new world, pay attention to detail.

According to the other reviews, we must have just gone in on a bad Mallorca day. The bread was dry and I was disappointed because I had been very excited to get a good Mallorca while in PR. Anyway, I am glad we also ordered a mofongo because it was SO good, the best I have ever had; and our... More

We stopped by here for lunch on our way back to the our cruise ship. My son tried the mofongos and loved it. It's a small place, and the wait staff is a bit older. So you have to wait a little longer, but it's worth it. It's very authentic. They have pastries in the window. I tried one and... More
