Chi chi cafe with boho vibes!

Off the beaten track but well worth seeking out for its relaxed, trippy hippy ambience & great coffee- owner Lorenzo is charming & cafe has a lovely courtyard that is secluded and a terrific setting for resting your tired feet.

Just visited this beautiful chocolatier for a chocolate torte with hazelnut creme and pear and a very english caffe latte choice ;) The place is wonderful and very relaxed but with high quality. I will be back possibly this eve for a cold beer and sampling their homemade chocolates. Glad I brought my running stuff haha! Very friendly and charismatic... More

Excellent hot chocolate. Go with time, it seems that is popular and it gets full so slow service but totally worth it. Enjoy!

Welcoming and atmospheric, there is a conservatory so don't be put off by the lack of outside tables. Best chocolate ice cream I have had in Sicily (and I had loads!). Friendly local hangout, we were greeted by everyone every time we went there. Exquisite cakes.

We had breakfast here and we loved it! The two men working there were very friendly and spoke English well - you could see that they really cared about the standard of food and coffee. We tasted 4 desserts (croissant, chocolate croissant, cheesecake and tiramisu) and all were amazing. The coffee was equally good. Best of all, the slightly French... More

After visiting Palermo with my wife for our honeymoon the first thing I looked for outside of our hotel was a coffee bar. We soon found Lorenzos and visited every morning before touring the city. The coffee is of exceptional quality which made tasting London's a chore. Lorenzo offers fantastic customer service with a jingle or two while taking our... More

The place was easily located, in a quiet corner of the historical town. Cute atmosphere, artistic touches inside and outdoors. Note that there's no air conditioning, so stuffy in the summer heat. Coffee was great, we had iced lattes however their dessert was mediocre. Brownies were dry and the carrot cake tasted like orange. Also, it's CASH ONLY. They don't... More
