We stopped here on our way to Taormina and Mount Etna. This is a great bakery / coffee shop. The cannoli are fantastic (ask for them if they are not on display!!)

Very old fashioned sweets baker - and all the better for it. Great cinnamon choux buns and delicious cannoli. The marzipan carved into fruit is an art in itself. The coffee room is lovely and dignified. Authentically lovely.

Very friendly pasticceria with a nice choice in typical sicilian dolce, to accompany a really good cuppa coffee. Inside, they have waited tables. Try their Cannoli filled with sweet ricotta cheese, dipped in pistache crumbs.

Fantastic place.....looks really tired and uninteresting from the outside, but once inside you are transferred to another world. I went there for the Canolli (amongst the best I have tried). I ended up trying not only the canolli but also various granita flavours, sweets, coffee...More
