This light-flooded French bakery got its name from a long-running cafe that used to be in the same space. It's located in Maó’s colorfully painted historic center and where you want to come for a real-deal croissant or pain au chocolat. Grab a freshly squeezed orange juice or a frothy cappuccino made with beans from Mallorca-based specialty roaster Mistral and perch at the window or streetside bench with the regulars. If you’re hitting the beach later on, grab a loaf of Pigalle’s payés sourdough bread (which you’ll spot at restaurants across the island) to go with a slab of cheese from Maó’s nearby market.
