They’ve been around for more than 100 years and for good reason. All the great things inside will delight your taste buds. I’ve been here many, many times. I’ve taken pastry to parties, back to my hotel, and given them as gifts to friends. Worth every euro. They’re old school here, boxing your selections in these handsome containers:

To find out what’s inside, you’ll have to visit yourself! Sorry, but it’s worth the trip. Enjoy every meal, and dessert, too!

La Mallorquina, Madrid

Near the western edge of Madrid’s Plaza del Sol, you’ll find a fantastic pastry shop known as La Mallorquina. I first sampled the delicious pastries here in 2003. Every time I’m in Madrid, I stop in for a few to fortify me for those long walks through the city. Here’s a photo of the shop.

A typical shop you might find in Madrid. Let’s take a look at the pastries, that’s the important part. Here’s a start.

Now there’s a few treats. And here are a few more.

To think, these are just a sampling of the many, many treats to be found inside. Like the old days, the staff wears white smocks and hats, a touch I find quaint and nostalgic and classy all at once. Most important, there’s a pastry for everyone, and all of them are very good. Never pass up dessert!
