Palma – Mala the Cafe

This rather under-stated cafe looked welcoming (and I’d quickly checked the reviews, I’m not that impetuous) and looked like a suitable little stop.

A rather pleasant view onto one of the squares in Palma. The service was very welcoming and helpful, with nothing seeming like too much trouble. I’m not entirely sure, but it seems that this might be a relatively new opening, since there seem to be no reviews that aren’t recent.

And, the carrot cake and cappuccino. This is one of the best presented cakes that I’ve seen for a while, which did add to the whole occasion. The carrot cake was tender and moist, with the caramel sauce adding a bit more richness. The coffee also didn’t let down the presentation and this was better than average, with a rich taste. The bill came to just over £5.50, which seems reasonable given the location of the cafe and the quality of the experience. Very lovely.
