Default DolÁ Sa Pobla - a fab cafe

I am currently on holiday in PP and I thought I would write a quick post to praise and recommend our favourite cafe in PP - the DolÁ Sa Pobla, as I haven't seen anyone recommend this gem before on here.

We first discovered DolÁ Sa Pobla on our first visit to Puerto Pollensa back in 2005. My then 4 year old son used to wake up at 6AM every morning. This made getting breakfast a problem as most of the SPAR supermarkets (that sell lovely bread and pastries) donít open until 8AM. So I had to drive around and find something open and I found the DolÁ Sa Pobla. It was rammed full of locals having their morning coffee and ensimadas, which I took as a good sign. The quality of the food was amazing so we have been frequent visitors to the cafe ever since.

Yesterday we went there for lunch and today we went there for breakfast. I took some photos so you can see what it is like:



Delicious pastries!



For lunch we had some delicious bocadillos, which are toasted baguette open sandwiches. I had a serrano ham and tomato one while Jonny had a normal ham one:



The address of the cafe is Carre Roger de Flor, 33 and below is a link to see where it is on Streetview: DolÁ Sa Pobla on Streetview

I can't recommend the cafe enough. When you are in PP you should pop in!

Hi Simon

Yes, I also have to agree - the coffee, cakes and in fact all food here is great. I found it one morning after a particularly strenuous aquagym class at the pool, so all my hard work was soon undone

The staff are always friendly and you can catch some afternoon sun in the winter by sitting on their outside terrace. It is also a great place to stop on market days (but it is very busy)

Highly recommend it

Glad I'm not the only one who has discovered this gem. And also that I may have persuaded some others to try it!

We are having a lovely holiday thanks. Shame it is coming to an end as we go back home on Tuesday

haha! Thankfully he doesn't wake up at 6AM any more now that he is older. More like 8-9AM which is much better.

We always stop off and buy baguettes for our picnic on the way to Formentor. Freshly made to order and always delicious A lovely little cafe.

Glad you are getting a bit of a lie now Simon!!

I do take a tripod with me but I wouldn't recommend it. I first bought it in 2004 for my old compact camera and it only cost £10. It is really flimsy and too lightweight for my Canon 50D and Tamron 17-50 lens and really struggles with my Sigma 70-200 f/2.8! I really need to buy a new one.

Sorry to take the thread off topic!
