NileGuide Expert tip:
This is a no-fuss and casual establishment.
A local staple and a retro landmark, La Bombonera, established in 1902 is a great attraction to enjoy while you savor their tasty creations. Try their famous pan de mallorca, a flat toasted pastry covered in confectioners sugar and butter. The outdoor sign is the same as in 1902 and the interior has a feel of decades past. Locals flock here to enjoy their morning "prieto" coffee and to gossip about the latest happenings on the island.
