Estellencs Estellencs Cafeteria Estellencs Very basic, but a good place for coffee.On the ma-10 as you enter the village. Banyalbufar Son Tomás Good range, service and quality. Excellent views. On the ma-10 as you enter the village. Banyalbufar Bellavista Good range, service and quality. Excellent views as the restaurant hangs over a cliff, only downside is you have to leave one of your party outside to look after the bikes! On the ma-10 halfway through the village. ​ Port des Canonge Couple of basic cafés, both pretty good.Take care you have an immediate climb waiting!​ Port Valldemossa Restaurant Es Port Just one restaurant that is surprisingly good given the lack of competition. Wide range of very good food (especially cakes), service and prices excellent. Only problem is that you have an immediate climb ahead! ​ Valldemossa Here there are a number of good cafés and restaurants, all close enough to the road, and all catering mainly but not exclusively to the tourist rather than the cyclist market. Deiá Number of good cafés and restaurants, all close to the road.Tough to choose as they are all good. ​ Sóller Sa Frontera Good range, service and quality. Menu of the day. Stop before you cross to the ma-11 from the ma-10. Remember you have the longest climb on the island immediately ahead of you.​ Port Sóller Adds an extra couple of kilometres to your route but here the choice is very wide. If you go through the one way system to the beachfront, there’s a restaurant to cater to every palate and budget. Remember you have Puig Major 2km ahead of you. Top of Sa Calobra OJ shack under the aqueduct Basic offering of food, but good energy bars to eat on the bike. Excellent fresh squeezed OJ. On the corner of the ma-10 and the turn off down to Sa Calobra. ​​ Port Sa Calobra Half a dozen cafés, all pretty good catering to a very captive market. Prices higher than average. Lluc Repsol Garage / Col de Sa Bataia café Good range, service and quality. Use the garage if you just want to pick up snacks or a drink, otherwise take your time in the café.At the top of the Coll de Sa Bataia, corner of the ma-10 and the road up from Caimari. ​ Lluc Monastery Well used to catering for cyclists. Coffee and food is good. Port de Pollença Huge choice. Enjoy re hydrating.
