Puerta del Sol, 8, 28013 Madrid, Spain

La Mallorquina, a bakery that’s seen it all. With over a century of experience in creating sweet traditions, La Mallorquina is waiting to fill your stomach with happiness and joy. The downstairs patisserie bar is ideal for those in a rush, but for a more serene environment its best to head upstairs. Be prepared to exceed your sugar limit by giving into all things sweet.
It’s best to avoid visiting at busy times because this Spanish gem is extremely popular amongst locals and tourists.
