Hidden Gems #7 Ca’n Joan de s’aigoJune 29, 2016

If you are looking for a true Mallorquin tea time experience then you must not leave the island without visiting ‘Ca’n Joan de s’aigo’ in Palma’s Old Town.


A local bakery in Palma originating from the 18th century which has become famed across Mallorca for serving the tastiest fresh Ensaimadas and hot chocolate in the Balearics. This gem is indeed hidden, tucked away on a quiet side street in Palma.  In fact, you could easily walk by without realising it is even there.   But, as you enter this charming Mallorquin tea room you feel as though you have been transported back in time with traditional Mallorquin furnishing, décor and paintings all over.

Do not expect a 5 star dining experience, quite the opposite in fact, your orders will be taken quickly, there will be waiters running around you, shouting orders back to the kitchen – but if you are looking to experience an authentic Mallorcan café together with the most delicious home made pastries and traditional “chocolate a la taza” (hot chocolate) then this place is not to be missed.

When you visit make sure to order an “Ensaimada y un cuarto con chocolate a la taza”.  You will not regret it!

The address is: Carrer Can Sanç, 10, 07001 Palma, Illes Balears

Open from 8am – 9pm every day
