When my husband and I decided to spend one month on Mallorca finding the best coffee in Palma was non-negotiable. Our plan was to spend workdays comfortably tucked into cozy cafes and thankfully Palma delivered.
I wanted to round up my personal favorite cafes in Palma for those planning a trip to the island.

Best Coffee Palma de Mallorca
Of all the great cafes on Mallorca none impressed me more than Surry Hills in Palma’s Old Town. Opened in 2021, Surry Hills is a new Australian cafe in Palma that’s looking to impress.
The minimal interior is well designed and feels warm and the hospitable staff are some of the kindest we came across during out month on the island. Focusing on fresh seasonal produce and knock-out coffee, they offer one of the best brunches in Palma as well.
We ordered the eggs Benedict and salmon toast, alongside a cappuccino and Americano. Within the first bite, my husband and I turned to each other and said “wow” in unison. The food exceeded expectations and the coffee delivered. Give them the love and attention they deserve, this is definitely one of the best cafes in Palma!
Started in 2014, La Molienda is often credited for introducing specialty coffee to Palma. This charming Palma cafe is found in a quieter portion of the Old Town, but folks are happy to make the trek for their quality coffee and delicious breakfast menu.
They focus on Spanish coffee roasters and change the brews frequently. The quality speaks for itself, since opening in 2014, the cafe has spread to three busy locations. We ordered the the classic tomato toast and egg scramble sandwich, and both dishes were great enough to return for.
I’m partial to the location on Bise but getting a table can be challenging, arrive early if you’d like to sit inside.
Arabay Coffee was my go-to cafe in Palma because it was a few steps from our place. The expert staff were such a joy to start the morning with, and their organic and fair-trade coffee always hit the spot.
We were surprised to learn that Arabay has been roasting coffee on the island since 1952, but didn’t open a cafe in Palma until 2016. They also serve light food, like sandwiches and baked goods.
Based on my experience, this is the best cafe in Palma for digital nomads. The sun-soaked upstairs area is full of tables and chairs perfect for those looking to get some work done. We noticed the same folks glued to their laptops every day we popped in.
Mistral Coffee Roasters
Started in 2017, Mistral is known for serving some of the best coffee in Palma and you only need to take one sip to understand why both locals and visitors love this place so much.
Their high-quality specialty coffee is ethically sourced and roasted freshly on Mallorca. This passion behind this detail-focused Palma cafe shines through in every cup. They have two coffee shops in Palma and I love the sunny one located a two minute walk from Passeig de Born.
Address: Carrer del Banc, 4, 07001 Palma
Mama Carmen’s might just be the cutest cafe in Palma, thankfully they also serve some of the best coffee in Palma too. Located in Santa Catalina, Mama Carmens specializes in vegetarian and vegan cuisine.
Expect long lines at this establishment, they opened a second location one block away from the flagship store and both places swell with visitors during the morning hours.
We discovered Rosevelvet Bakery while aimlessly wandering the charming streets of Palma. Intrigued by the happy looking faces coming in and out, we decided to pop in for a visit. We were drawn to the lovely courtyard in the back and eagerly awaited our coffee and afternoon treat (cheesecake).
Within a sip we realized we had just stumbled upon some of the best cafes in Palma, a theory confirmed by the delicious cheesecake plopped down in front of us minutes later. Rosevelvet may be part cafe and part bakery, but they’re fully exceptional at both.
Address: Carrer de la Missió, 15, Local 1, 07003 Palma
Specialty coffee in Palma isn’t hard to find, but not all cafes are created equal. That’s where Cafè Riutort comes in, they serve exceptional coffee in a relaxed atmosphere.
This unfussy Palma cafe is always inviting and folks are encouraged to linger around rather than quickly rushing out with a to-go cup. If you need a calm spot to plan out your day in Palma, Cafè Riutort is hard to beat.
Address: C. del Carme, 25, 07003 Palma
Admittedly El Perrito is better known as a brunch spot, but serving the best coffee in Palma typically comes with the territory! We enjoyed the coffee and food at El Perrito so much we went back three times during our stay in Mallorca.
Address: Carrer d’Anníbal, 20, 07013 Palma,
Mallorca is a world renowned destination for biking, so it’s only fitting that some of the cafes in Palma are geared towards two passions: cycling and coffee.
Rapha coffee is a perfect example of that. Part shop and part cafe, this place is almost always full of bikers. But you don’t need to be a biker to enjoy the great coffee brewed at his quaint cafe.
Address: Plaça del Rosari, 1, 07001 Palma
Ca’n Joan de s’Aigo
Like most people that visit Mallorca, I went to Ca’n Joan de s’Aigo for ensaimada and ice cream. Coffee was an afterthought but I need an afternoon pick-me-up. Little did I know that Ca’n Joan de s’Aigo serves some of the best coffee in Palma.
It was perfectly strong and smooth, really hitting the spot. After my visit I can confirm that this is not only one of the best cafes in Palma but one of the best bakeries in Mallorca as well.
