Conveniently located between the UNESCO Palazzo Chiaramonte and the superb Palazzo Abellis with its excellent art collection, this small shop has fantastic service, delicious cakes and the best cold herbal teas in town! Highly recommended!

Hidden in a narrow street close to the giardino Garibaldi, this little pasticceria meets coffeebar is an excellent place for a quick pitstop. Great coffee for less than a euro, perfect chocolate cake and the owners are friendly.

The lemon ginger tea infusion was also delicious. The owner, Enzo, is very friendly and ready with recommendations for other restaurants and cafes. This is a great... More

This cafe is adorably decorated and serves a delicious assortment of homemade sweets. Serving coffee and tea in the morning and apertivo drinks in the evening. Service can be a bit a slow due to a shortage of staff and a constant stream of customers but it is worth the wait.

Peaceful setting in a hectic town. Great chocolates, excellent coffee. A perfect mid afternoon treat to hold you over to the late dinner hour in Sicily.

We found out about this place through our Airbnb host. We went for breakfast (lunch service starts at 1) and we felt spoilt for choice. There were a range of different cakes you could choose from including tiramisù and the ever so popular British carrot cake with a Sicilian twist, all of which are homemade. Service was very relaxed and... More

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.
