There is not much to say about this place, go for seasonal fruit granita and warm fragrant brioche and experience this place yourself. Bravo.

If you haven't tried it before, this place offers a good "granita". I recommend "arancia" - orange. The hot chocolate is also good, but if you like your chocolate sweet like I do order the plain milk chocolate, the one with pistacchio was too bitter for my taste. The staff speaks English. The decoration is beautiful!

Came here on the off season. Lovely owner that made us feel welcome. Sat outside and watched the world go by. Not expensive and we'll be back.

Great coffee in a great location right in the middle of Taormina. The sun was shining and the moment was wonderful... even in the early November autumn. Staff are were pleasant and efficient.

This bar is located not far away underneath the theater in Taormina. They serve some nuts and crackers together with your drink. Take a seat, enjoy your wine and watch the scenery. Because this bar, placed at a little piazza, allows to watch people passing by.

Had heard about granita, described as being between a slush and a sherbet but better and special. Thought we would be disappointed but made the point of having it at the best place for granita in Taormina to make sure we gave it a fair shake. Boy - we were so glad to be wrong - it is so delicious!... More

We had several mornings, mid-morning coffee&breakfasts here - wonderful service and a great location, a stone throw from where we stayed at Residence Degli Agrumi. Only hoping to do it again, some day.
