Santosha only serves brunch on weekends, and their menu is extensive, with plenty of vegan and gluten-free options. They aim to use locally-sourced, organic and fair-trade produce wherever possible and the food is consistently delicious – home-made pastries, fruit salads, granola, eggs, avocado on toast, salt beef. Slightly cave-like, Santosha is not the place to go if you want sunshine, but it’s cosy and relaxed, the owners are very amiable, and it’s a popular breakfast haunt for families – if you take a table in the back room (where there is also a tiny courtyard), the kids can play in the adjoining playroom and you get to eat your eggs in peace.

The Sky Bar at Hostal Cuba

If you want a good value buffet breakfast, then the Sky Bar at Hostal Cuba is definitely the place to go. Located on the rooftop of an iconic building in the lively Santa Catalina neighbourhood, breakfast comes with unbeatable views over the marina and the Cathedral. The roof terrace is small so booking is advised, the array of food on offer is so huge that you will likely want to linger a while. This is a great place to set yourself up for the day with full cooked breakfasts, eggs, cold meats, freshly-squeezed juices, coffee, fruit, pastries (including the typically Mallorcan ensaimada) and much more, all included in the set price.

Rosevelvet Bakery

Avocado on toasted bread

The Rosevelvet Bakery wouldn’t look out of place in Williamsburg or Hackney, and is a welcome addition to Palma’s brunch scene. Tucked away in the old town, not far from La Rambla, this bakery and café is small with a definite hipster feel and a pretty, sunny courtyard. The cakes and pastries are to die for, the coffee great, and the ever-changing brunch options are truly excellent. Their zingy avocado on toast with a rocket salad on the side is particularly good and their Instagram page is enough to make anyone drool.
