Brilliant brunches in and around Palma 2019

Where to bag a good breakfast & soak up the sun

Featured in: | Jose Rains, Mallorca Reporter | Published

The brunching concept has been taking the world by storm and Mallorca is no exception. If you're after a long and lazy weekend brunch with family or friends, then there are quite a few fantastic places popping up all over the island.

Here are some of our favourite brunch hot spots in and around Palma.

Breakfast on the tourist circuit – Mise En Place

Mise En Place

If you are ticking off the tourist landmarks of the island’s capital and looking to squeeze brunch into your day, we would highly recommend a trip to Mise En Place, tucked away in the corner of Plaça Major (Palma’s main square). Here you can get hold of an array of treats for breakfast including smoothie bowls, pastries, matcha lattes and all the latest breakfast trends taking the island by storm while soaking up the wonderful atmosphere in the square.

The trendiest breakfast in Palma – Hotel Hostal Cuba

Hotel Hostal Cuba

Located in Palma’s trendy Santa Catalina district, the cafe at Hotel Hostal Cuba is where the cool crowd congregates for breakfast. Perhaps because of their exceptional menu or maybe because there’s a pretty impressive sky garden overlooking the marina. On the menu, you will come across some age-old international favourites like pancakes, alongside traditional Spanish-style options featuring jamón, sobrassada, tortilla and Mahon cheeses, in addition to some creative treats like toast with ricotta and strawberry jam.

Brunch fit for a captain – The Boat House

The Boat House

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast among Palma’s magnificent yachts at the nautical-themed restaurant The Boat House. This is the best place in town if you crave long-standing favourites like a full English breakfast, eggs Benedict or Canadian pancakes with crispy bacon and maple syrup. If you're a Bloody Mary with brunch kinda’ person, then their cocktails are also something to write home about. The al fresco setting here is perfect to soak up some sunshine amongst the yachts.

Wholesome brunch – Santina


If you are looking for a healthy brunch, then Santina is absolutely the place to go. Be warned, there are often queues out the door for a table on a Sunday but it’s well worth the wait. It offers a casual yet creative vibe when it comes to the menu and they serve the most Instagram-worthy smoothie bowls – the ‘Berry Acai bowl’ and ‘Mango Bowl’ are definitive crowd pleasers. Smashed avocado enthusiasts should try the 'Healthy Greek Toast', topped with avocado, feta mash, chia seeds and salad. If bagels are more your kind of thing, then the selection here is to die for. Try the ‘King of the North' (smoked salmon, cream cheese and avocado bagel served with scrambled eggs). And, of course, you have got to wash it all down with one of their smoothies. These are just a few examples of our favourite dishes but get down there and try it out.  Vegan and gluten-free options are also available.

Breakfast with the family – Santosha


Santosha can be found in a nook along one of the back streets of Palma’s old town. It has become a hot spot for families thanks to their playroom, which features plenty of toys to keep the little ones entertained and enough space for them to run around. We love their ‘Crispy corn tacos with bean chilli’ but you can get pancakes, granola, poached eggs, smashed avocado and more here. Although set in an old building, the exposed brickwork inside works well with the contemporary furniture.

Bottomless brunch – Nakar Hotel

Nakar Hotel

At the Nakar Hotel, you can enjoy a bottomless brunch between 12:00 and 15:00 on Sundays for just €25. Here you can expect to find a selection of warm and cold dishes, sweet and savoury, including a wide selection of eggs, tortillas, cheese, ham, bread and pastries, all on the top floor within Cuit Restaurant which offers spectacular views over the city and its splendid cathedral. The icing on the cake here is the atmosphere as the DJs work their magic in keeping everyone upbeat during their brunch experience at the Nakar Hotel.

Traditional Mallorcan brunch - Es Rebost Cafe

Es Rebost

If you are looking for a casual experience among the hustle and bustle of Palma’s city centre, Es Rebost is on one of Palma's main shopping streets, Avenida Jaume III. It serves typical Mallorcan recipes for breakfast, all made with organic, locally-sourced ingredients and with lots of gluten-free options. Start your day with some of their savoury specialities such as "galletas trempades" (traditional savoury crackers topped with sobrassada, camaiot, botifarrón and pork paté, seasoned with tomatoes, olive oil, salt from Es Trenc and pickles), sobrassada sandwich, llonguet (typical Mallorcan crunchy bread served with aged Mahón cheese and vegetables or just some olive oil and salt) or coca. And, if you have a sweet tooth, they also have typical cakes such as carob muffins, almond "gató" and, of course, ensaimada, as well as yoghurts, freshly squeezed juices, smoothies, fruit and so much more.
