Hidden amidst the narrow sun-baked streets of Palma de Majorca’s old town, Can Joan de S’Aigo is a 200-year-old local café-cum-chocolatería, with a tiled floor, gilt-mirrored walls and marble tabletops, and is well worth the hunt. Their specialty hot chocolate is rich and smoothly delicious; or for something more
refreshing, try a chilled almond milkshake. Accompany it with a sweet ensaimada pastry dusted with icing sugar, or a generous slice of almond cake, made the traditional way, without flour. Can Joan’s homemade almond ice-cream is also reputedly Majorca’s best.
