The Bam Bar is located on one a square off Corso Umberto. Despite the slightly remote location the Bam Bar is a very busy place - this has to do with the friendly staff and the quality of the product offering. The specialty of the house are sorbets. We even got some to try without ordering them - as we... More

A must visit when in Taormina. Besides the absolute various delicacies they produce, the owners and their staff swarm constantly around their clients with a broad smile and their natural jovial Sicilian character. A very good chance to get granita addicted from here.

In Malta we are not used to taking granita for breakfast, and we sure enjoyed our treat! We were back a second time during our trip in Taormina!

You haven't been to Taormina if you haven't stopped at this small, authentic bar for a brioche and granita. They offer many flavors, depending on the season - we indulged in chocolate and blood orange. I find myself longing for one as I write this!

We were on our way out of Taormina, loaded in the car with kids, etc. But based on a tourguide-friend's suggestion, I was determined to try the Best Almond granita in All of Sicily... we had to. And it did not dissapoint! We carried several granitas back to our 2 cars (a 5 minute walk away) and when everyone was... More

Had granita one day, tried the coffee and almond which the waiter recommended; it was fantastic. Returned twice, once for a morning coffee, also good, and just had to make time for granita and brioche another afternoon. Same great granita with different flavours, same friendly and efficient service.

If you're fortunate enough to be in Taormina, no visit there is complete without granita and brioche at the Bam Bar! The coffee with freshly whip'd cream is a treat any time of day or night.

Bam Bam was near our hotel so we stopped in the morning for a coffee and croissant - this place is just very good at what it does. Friendly staff and nice outside seating
