One of the best Granita in Sicily

The Granita at this place is just one of the best in Sicily. A must visit for anyone in Taormina. The problem is what flavour to choose from all the different flavours :)

We stopped here with Chef Massimo on our way back from market. He said we had to try the Granita here and am I glad we did. It was sensational along with the fresh brioche.

Wow, have not had anything quite as tasty as that in a while. Perfect on a hot day, super flavoursome icy fruity goodness. They also had some other flavours such as coffee, almond, etc. But the kiwi and the raspberry were divine!

We had coffee and almond mix with cream topping. Yummmm! Went back on another occasion to try a different combination but it was not open (Monday morning) which was surprising. Only a few of the options on the menu were available but it was lovely!

We stayed upstairs at the Casa Turrisi B&B. We were given breakfast each morning at the Bam Bar. Fresh brioche and juice. Espresso and capaccino were very good. Nicely hand painted murals on the walls made for a happy interior.

We visited Sicily out of season last week and found ourselves going back to this cosy Bar for an early evening drink.The staff were very pleasant and attentive. Good coffee was one of our other criteria and we were not disappointed. I would recommend this cosy Bar.
