Sweet and vegan in MallorcaBconnectedmallorca
As we evolve into a more health-conscious population we are seeing more and more people drop dairy out of our everyday lives. To support this change in taste a lot of restaurants are catching on around the island. We are seeing more menu boards outside restaurants announcing vegan and gluten-free options. We thought we’d share a few of our favourite patisseries and cafés that cater to this type of diet to make it easier for you.
If you’re looking for a delicious dairy-free ice cream whilst strolling around Palma, Rivareno ice cream offers some tasty sorbets as well as dairy-free ice cream such as chocolate and coconut, a delish combination if you fancy mixing it up.
Coco’s Deli Portals is a health-orientated brunch café that offers daily vegan sweets such as banana bread, vegan coconut balls, or a peanut butter crunchy bar. Along with many other vegan options on the menu, Coco’s Deli is a holistic oasis in the centre of Portals Nous where you feel rejuvenated after solely having a coffee or perhaps a chai tea.
Sabores de Sandra in Santa Catalina is a vegan venue offering all kinds of options for those searching for a dairy-free lunch that’s a mix of the typical Mallorcan plates. Our recommendation, try the vegan lasagna! It is quite a treat.

And if you want to spice it up with a delicious sweet touch, don't miss the refreshing varieties of Cachao Drinks in their shop next to the Santa Catalina market. Absolutely NO DAIRY, refined sugar, and 100% organic. Paleo-friendly :-)
Sweet Marcona almonds and fleur de sel from Mallorca blended together and enhanced with caramely coconut blossom nectar and a touch of vanilla or an incredibly rich and surprisingly refreshing chocolate drink, made with no animal products and just a few top-quality ingredients from their favourite organic farmers.

If you’re outside of Palma and Portals area, along the coast to Santa Ponsa is Donna Vegana. Hidden away in a residential community near the popular Puerto Adriano with a spacious terrace to enjoy a lunch in the sunshine. Donna’s entire menu is gluten-free and vegan which makes it a delight for those who are looking for both. From vegan Bolognese to gluten-free porridge, this place is a must-try!
Lastly, located in the pebbled backstreets of Palma is Vegan and Raw. With a complete vegan philosophy, the treats will surprise you with how good they taste. From a pumpkin pie to a vegan cheesecake, you’ll have too many options to choose from!
