Now that winter has arrived in Ibiza, I’d love to share my suggestions for Ibiza’s cosiest cafés with you.
One of the great delights of living in Ibiza is the fact that it’s an outdoors culture. This applies even on the coldest days, when I’m happy to sit outside with my coffee, soaking up the Mediterranean winter sun and bundled up in my warm coat.
If I’m feeling particularly indulgent, I’ll order a piping hot, deliciously gloopy chocolate a la taza, the best hot chocolate in the world, and a plate of sugar-dusted churros – think long donuts.
But there are times when it’s just nicer to be inside, especially now when I’m catching up with friends for a pre-Christmas get together, meeting clients, taking a breather during Christmas shopping or wanting to work in a café as a change from the office.
While it has to be said that, in general, Ibiza doesn’t do cosy that well – for the obvious reason that, as I mentioned, life is mainly lived outside here – there are some especially warm and welcoming cafés dotted around the island.
These, in my humble opinion. are five of Ibiza’s cosiest cafés.
Cappuccino is a chain of rather grand cafés found in Mallorca, on the mainland of Spain and in the world-famous luxury skiing resort of Gstaad, Switzerland.
The Cappuccino at Marina Ibiza is a popular meeting place all year around, not least for its gorgeous view of Ibiza’s old town. In winter, it’s the perfect place to sit, outside warmed by the sun or a powerful heater, or at one of the tables inside.
Marina Ibiza Cappuccino is very friendly and welcoming. It’s certainly one of Ibiza’s cosiest cafés, wonderful any time of day, from breakfast to dinner, and ideal for any kind of meeting, social or business.
Intimate, friendly and popular with locals, Can Moreta is one of the hidden gems of Ibiza town.
With its funky and slightly ramshackle vibe, Can Moreta is the perfect place to keep warm and cosy, while feeling that you’re taking a nice little time out from the world.
Definitely one of Ibiza’s cosiest cafés.
Known for its burgers, tapas and croquettes, Can Moreta also does heartwarming chocolate a la taza and churros.
This upmarket restaurant in Ibiza town is open all day for everything from breakfast to dinner and drinks in between. It’s the perfect place to try a traditional Ibizan breakfast while you prepare for the day, meet friends who prefer to socialise in a smarter setting or have a business meeting.
And, although it’s large, Ebuscus is always warm and cosy.
A classic French bakery with a twist, Croissant Show is an Ibiza old town institution.
In the summer, Croissant Show is where in-the-know clubbers head for breakfast after partying all night because it’s open 23 hours a day.
In winter, breakfast is naturally a more sedate affair enjoyed by locals and the occasional winter tourist.
Croissant Show is the place for probably the best croissants in Ibiza and a hot café con leche on a beautiful old town morning.
Popular Musset in beautiful Santa Gertrudis in the centre of the island is perfect if you’re exploring Ibiza, perhaps hiking in the countryside, and want somewhere to fortify yourself before setting out or warm up after a few hours outside.
The extensive breakfast menu is served until 1pm and includes a great range of plant-based options, as do the mouthwatering lunch and dinner menus.
If you’re a digital nomad and have a bit of catching up on work to do, Musset is particularly welcoming to people who want to tap away on their laptop in another one of Ibiza’s cosiest cafés.
These are my tips for Ibiza’s five cosiest cafés. I’m always looking out for a cosy cafe so if you have any other suggestions please feel free to share them with me.
