A bit expensive the place, but the quality of the food very good. The sweet bread is excellent and the hot chocolate excellent. It is not recommendable to go with children, at least the one that is located in the street Palma of historical center.

El Caardenal is one of the most traditional fine breakfast experiences within the city. The bread and clotted cream are excellent.

I strongly recommend this place. You get the assurance that the ingredients they use will have the highest standards of cleanliness and quality before they serve them and also the real flavors from mexico. The place is located near downtown.

The pastries they hand out are very good. I tried the ant eggs in scrambled eggs...nothing too special. Decent brunch place but not the best. Orange juice was very good though
