Not a Single Starbucks


One of the good things about Mallorca, in my humble opinion anyway, is the absence of Starbucks coffee houses.

Instead, Mallorca takes pride in a plenitude of bars, restaurants and other such establishments, all catering for customers such as locals, forasters (i. e. people from the mainland), visitors, tourists, and expatriates like me. According to the Palma based Centre de Recerca Econòmica (CRE) there exists a total of 4,174 restaurants, 2,188 cafeterias and 4,364 bars in all of the Balearic Islands. My guess is, that some 70 % of those figures would apply to Mallorca alone.

The photo was taken inside the bar where I normally take my morning café solo, but I must state that on a dry day I prefer to sit outside, in the Plaza España.

The photo was taken in the town of Felanitx, Mallorca, Spain. The date: October 27th, 2007. The time was 11:43:24.

    • It’s been a long time, 44 years to be exact, when our carrier USS Independence visited Palma. I found the city and all its many “bars, restaurants and other such establishments” to be totally delightful.
      I’m sure that there have been many changes to the face of the city, but you certainly can get along quite well without Starbucks. If one gets planted, they seem to multiply and grow like weeds.
      It’s good to see that my niece Lynn was apparently live and well in 2007.
      I would hope to visit Palma again before long.
