Expert review of Cappuccino

A chic, café-cum-bistro in the heart of the city.

Cappuccino is the rare kind of place you wish would open near you. It ticks a lot of boxes - great coffee, great cakes, great music. Unfortunately they rarely do, but the good thing about Majorca is that you are never very far from one with nine now open island-wide (five of them in Palma) and counting.

Food and drink: 

It's better known for coffee and cake (which are dangerously good), but it is possible to eat properly here too. Think reassuring staples like soups, salads, sandwiches and pasta lubricated with decent Spanish wines and rather glamorous cocktails.

Recommended dishes: 

The truth is I have become badly addicted to the caramel and banana pie, which my body now craves for breakfast like it used to muesli. Ho hum. Banana counts for one-a-day doesn't it? I also think their carrot and ginger soup with shavings of Manchego might just have saved my weekend recently when I was struck down with flu.

Ambience: 

The San Nicolás branch is housed in an old fabric store with bolts of silk and reels of cotton making a homey backdrop to the olive greens and blues. Think cosy and comfortable, the kind of place you can linger (and indeed I do).

Service: 

It is quite formal by café standards with waiters and waitresses precisely quaffed and doffed in their tight-buttoned shirts and waistcoats. It has a whiff of the old-fashioned about it and I like it.

Location: 

This branch is in the heart of both the shopping and art districts of old Palma. It is great for a lunch stop, or a post-spree cocktail.

Price advice: 

Soup, bread and a cup of tea will cost you about 10 euros so it is not really what you'd call a bargain compared to some of the lunch menus on offer. Then again, you don't always want to stuff down three courses in the middle of the day, so it works.

Other useful branches:
