Mallorca got plenty of fruit and vegetables in great quality. Yet there are only few restaurants and cafés for vegetarians. Sure, meanwhile every good restaurant offers at least a couple of vegetarian options, if not even a complete veggie menu. But some places solely dedicated to vegetarian and – more often than not – vegan food are really extraordinary. Whether you are looking for a bakery, a café or a restaurant, here are my personal Top 5 veggie places in Palma, the best of vegetarian and vegan eateries in town:
Bon Lloc has been the pioneer of vegetarian and vegan cuisine on Mallorca. Until today the highly acclaimed restaurant of Juanjo Ramirez on noble Carrer Sant Feliu has the most sophisticated vegan menu.
Plaer Natural opened almost 12 years ago on picturesque Plaça Quartera with a daily changing vegetarian lunch menu. Over time they also turned fully eco and included vegan and gluten free options. Besides the delicious food it’s the personal touch of Monica, Ignasi and their team that makes Plaer Natural a special place.
One of my favorite coffee places is Café Riutort. But it‘s not only the roasts that are outstanding, Riutort also offers vegetarian breakfast and lunch. The menu is small but you cannot go wrong with a salad or their popular combo – a combination of soup, salad and a third dish all served on one plate.
Temple Natura is a true urban oasis. Hidden behind a plain facade lies a lush garden with charming vintage furniture where you enjoy your meal. The kitchen, local cuisine with a latin touch, prepares a nice choice of most tasty dishes, from bocadillos to burritos to burgers.
Mama Carmen’s Kitchen and its younger sister Coffee & Bakery are located in Santa Catalina. And both super popular for their specialty coffee and the colorful vegan bowls, toasts and granolas. Not to forget their lovely cakes and rolls, homemade from the Hippie Baker.
For our daily supply at home there are numerous possibilities in the city, from the small neighborhood colmado to the large mercats. A fab place is the eco market on Plaça dels Patins. On Tuesday and Saturday mornings local farmers sell strictly certified produce right from earth to table.
