Amid the winding stone streets of Palma, this father and son face tough choices as they gaze through the windows of La Pajarita Bomboneria (The Bow Tie).

Along with the adjoining Charcuteria, home to hams, cheeses and condiments, the shop dates back to 1872, when a chocolatier opened his doors in this location to enjoy the custom of Archduke Louis Salvador.

Today, four generations later, the shops – which were separated in 1972 – enjoy the custom, or business, of locals and tourists alike, and remain in the hands of the same family.
