This month the team at Baps & Wraps are celebrating their second birthday.
What a crazy two years it has been here in Santa Catalina. It seems only yesterday we were putting the finishing touches to transforming what was a dilapidated closed down bar into a bright and colourful little oasis in one of Palma’s busiest neighbourhoods. Our café and sandwich shop, we are pleased to say, has grown from strength to strength. This is in part due to our incredible loyal and fastidious customer base who have helped guide us through our early years. We have made many friends along this journey because of this and want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support.
Over the last year not only has our team grown, but we have also added some new and exciting elements to the shop. We are now delivering to many of the big ports and marinas in Palma on a daily basis and have been providing lunch for crews of some of the most beautiful yachts in the world. It is very humbling driving through STP each morning and standing side by side with these fantastic boats.
Our menu has retained many traditional family favourites such as coronation chicken (a particular local favourite) and the unfailing cheddar ploughman’s but there have been many new additions such as the incomparable breakfast wrap the Ultimate Start and the popular bapinis for if you fancy just a light bite. We now also serve corn gluten free wraps so there really is a wide variety to suit all tastes and dispositions.
Over the last two years we have constantly been improving the quality of our produce and striving to source as locally as we can. Our bread, muffins and croissants are all baked round the corner and our coffee is also roasted here on the island. In fact, our coffee is hugely popular and is regularly acclaimed as one of the best in Palma! We source many of our fresh fruit and vegetables from the local markets and the oranges we freshly squeeze each day come from the beautiful Soller region of Mallorca.
The spring is a busy time for us, providing quick and convenient lunches to the several boat shows and sea trials that occur at this time of year. It is also extremely busy for the many crews racing to get their boats ready to return to the waters, so we also try and ease the stress with a reliable and tasty lunch. Now that summer has arrived, we look forward to welcoming new crew arriving on the island for their next adventure, as well as the many regattas and daytrips we cater for during this time. Our ethos has very much stayed the same since we opened. We strive to offer high quality, fresh, simple food – humble yet filling and comforting. If you are ever in Santa Catalina, do pop in and I guarantee you will be welcomed by a friendly face. There is always a super relaxed atmosphere and we have free Wi-Fi and normally some nostalgic 80s music on the go. We hope to see you very soon!
