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.

Been to the bar a number of times and it's great for coffee, cakes, granita and drinks. Only just off the corso umberto but nice and quiet terrace and prices almost half of those on the main squares.

Come for a quick stop and a granite. Short and sweet. Loses a point for having minimal atmosphere. Staff is friendly and granite is another level. But you probably knew that already.
