Where to stop and eat between Messina and Cefalu?

Hello,

We are driving from Taormina to Cefalu. We anticipate it will be approx. 2.5 -3 hrs in terms of driving time. We wanted to break it up by stopping somewhere convenient off the highway to eat and take a break. I was thinking Tindari to stop and see the Riserva dei Laghetti di Marinello. Is it worth it? If not we might just stop to grab some lunch. Any recommendations for sights and places to eat (with convenient access to parking) would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

There's no left luggage storage, and that's always a risk to leave luggage unattended in the car.

An agriturismo stop is usually suggested.

You might also drive the interior autostrada, less tunnels and no tolls.

Regaleali for tasting and lunch is a dream, but pricey.

But then there's the Autogrill for a panini as well.

Thank you Vagabonda! Do you know of any agriturismos between Taormina and Cefalu along the coastline? I am thinking to stop between the 2 to break up the drive. Thank you once again!
