Café El Molino, Camino de Mao 7 (tel. 97-138-00-00), is one of our favorite bars, a hangout near the Avinguda de la Constitució. It has attracted virtually every drinker in town since it was established in 1905 within the circular premises of a windmill built in 1794. It provides a rustic but richly international contrast to the busy square it borders and boasts the unusual distinction of having monumental walls and vaulted ceilings a lot older than those of the buildings surrounding it. The clientele includes visiting foreigners and local fishers, and the mood changes from that of an early-morning cafe, whose opening is timed to coincide with the departure of fishing boats, to a late-night bar. This place is earthy, regional, and brusque, yet invaluable for an insight into old-time Minorca.
