Strolling through a city, the smell of fresh bread often lures me into a bakery. Forn Fondo already catches your eye from afar with its beautiful Modernisme facade. And a glance into the shop window is just as tempting. Actually, Forn Fondo is one of the oldest Comercios Emblemáticos in Palma. For more than 100 years, locals and travelers have loved the artisan bread and Mallorcan pastries.
Local delicacies like the black and white cuarto embatumat, the traditional dessert of Palma. Or ensaimada, with apricots or figs, with chocolate or marzipan, depending on the season. The store is well filled with all kinds of sweet and savory goods. Don’t hesitate to ask the friendly staff, they are happy to tell you more about the typical Mallorcan baking products.
Forn Fondo is actually much older than the emblematic store. In the year 1742 Jaime Llull Gelabert and Francisca Cañellas Pons opened a small bakery around the corner in Carrer Caputxines. Evers since it has been in the hands of the Llull family. With Pau and his sister Neus Llull Riera in 4th generation in charge of the business. History has rarely tasted so good.
