***Alex told me that Yalis is not working at D’Horno anymore. He owns and runs the shop by himself, today.***
When she was a girl, Yalismar Canozo Celis dreamt of being a flight attendant, serving drinks and snacks while crossing the Atlantic or Pacific Ocean. And that’s exactly what she did for many years, flying from Venezuela to destinations all over the world. When the airline became insolvent Yalis decided to move to the place she always loved most: Palma de Mallorca. Here, she started all over again and for the second time in her life followed a dream.
Together with Alex Bujanda, she opened her own bakery and simply named it D’Horno. Since the Aroma Café closed its doors a while ago, a new bakery is more than welcome in the neighborhood. And although D’Horno is a rather small space, Yalis and Alex sell quite a variety of baked goods, including several types of brown and wholewheat bread. Don’t forget to ask for the specials – breads with different ingredients like olives or aniseed. Mostly, I go for the regular – if you store it in a plastic bag it keeps fresh for the weekend. But is there anything better than fresh bread? And D’Horno is open Sunday mornings, too, so there’s actually no need to build up stocks. Of course, you can also just grab a coffee and some cookies para llevar.
Actually, there is much more to discover in the beautiful brightly colored cupboards at D’Horno (which are, by the way, handcrafted by Alex – as all of the interior furniture is). From French style croissants to home made cakes a sweet tooth really faces a challenge, here. My absolute favorite are the macadamia nuts in chocolate that Yalis recently discovered in Barcelona and added to their assortment. They are just fantastic and always a nice little match for your cafe solo.
