A freshly baked, flaky ensaimada (Balearic delicacy) with a cup of milky coffee is certainly a great way to start your day in Ibiza, but the island has a lot more to offer for the most important meal of the day.
Nothing beats a long and lazy Sunday brunch with family or friends where you can eat good food and enjoy great company. We have a few favourites but this is just scratching the surface of the great places to eat in Ibiza.
Cotton Beach Club for champagne brunch
One of the most popular brunch spots in Ibiza is this immaculately white beach club above Cala Tarida beach, with stunning views over the Mediterranean sea.
Cotton Beach Club serve their famous Champagne Brunch on Sundays from 13:00 until sunset with live music and delicious food. We recommend you book in advance because it normally fills up pretty quickly.
Café Bondi for morning-after recovery
A quiet haven, here you can sample a large range of breakfast options. From traditional Eggs Benedict, Full English or French omelette with toast, to the more alternative Açai bowl with rice coconut milk, banana, granola and fresh fruit or Australian pancakes with red berries, ricotta and organic apple syrup. Wash them down with cold-pressed juices (we recommend the 'Morning Zinger', a combination of orange, carrot, apple and ginger), smoothies (their Breakfast Smoothie with banana, rolled oats, blueberries, soy milk and honey will recharge your batteries for a day at the beach club), protein shakes or freshly brewed coffee for an energy boost.
And, if you're feeling a bit hungover, you can have one of their detox mineral waters on their pleasant terrace.
Café Sidney for a buffet brunch
Sit on their terrace and watch elegant yachts come and go while you enjoy a huge buffet with arrays of cereals, yoghurt, colourful fruits, salads, cold meats, smoked salmon, burgers, curries and, of course, lots of cake.
El Chiringuito for brunch on the beach
With a sunny terrace and excellent views over Dalt Vila, Ibiza's old town, this beach club serves simple, honest and great tasting food.
Located right by the chic Es Cavallet beach, their breakfast menu includes classic brunch staples such as Eggs Benedict, Royale and Florentine, freshly baked pastries, homemade organic granola with yoghurt, toast, fruit salad, pancakes... But El Chiringuito is also a great place to check out if you want to sample a more traditional Spanish breakfast; just order one of their toasts with organic olive oil, Manchego cheese, or tomato and ham on local country bread for a local experience.
This is also the ideal spot for brunch with the kids as they have a special area for them, Little Chiringuito, where they can draw, paint and play while you relax.
Wild Beets for the latest food trends
On the menu, incredible combinations of superfoods like the 'Açai blended with banana, honey and sprinkled with homemade granola, covered in a layer of sliced banana and goji berries', 'Raw walnut banana pancakes with fresh fruit, maple syrup and cashew yoghourt' or 'Raw spirulina cake' as well as vitamin-packed cold-pressed juices that are not only delicious but also good for you.
Passion Cafe for clean eating
Their philosophy, in a nutshell, is to offer "good, natural, wholesome food using the best quality ingredients." This means that their breakfast menu is full of healthy options including all sorts of avocado toasts, the ever-popular açai bowls and fluffy, wholesome pancakes.
Savannah for brunch with sea views
Located on San Antonio's famous Sunset Strip, Savannah isn't only a great place to watch the sunset with a G&T in your hand, they also serve a hearty brunch menu from 11:00 to 17:00.
It features everything you'll need after a night out in town, from the classic Full English breakfast to the superfoods, including açai bowls, smoothies and poached eggs with smoked salmon.
