After reading other reviews on Trip Advisor we thought we would visit. There was a short queue outside which was very organised. The lady took names and as a table became free you were allocated a table. We had Granita and a brioche bun. We...choose 2 flavours each and used the brioche bun as a spoon. We did also have a regular spoon! The granite and bun are separate items so be sure to order both! Costs were €1.50 for bun & €4.50 for granita The granita was full of flavour and mucher nicer than I expected. They do also have a menu and you can order drinks too. Definitely a place to visit.More

Definitely the best granita in Taormina. Chaotic and noise, very much Sicilian, but quick and friendly. The granite was amazing. And gluten free brioches were lovely too.

Came highly recommended. We weren’t disappointed. The place was completely full when we arrived. Waited maybe 5 minutes and we were seated. We had the granite which was wonderful

Oh yes, it is worth waiting for! We tried the strawberry granita and the coffee granita. Both absolutely heavenly. Shout out to the guy managing the waiting list - he takes your name and the number in your group, and then remembers exactly who you...are. Very efficient service but they don’t hassle you to leave once you’ve eaten. Would return.More

At first you wonder whether this granita and brioche thing will work for you. Then you try it here and boy did it work. The tastiest, freshest, most authentic gravita in town. That place is lovely, cozy, quaint and unpretentious. A must in Taormina.

Iconic and very popular place to eat so expect to wait for a table. People don't tend to stay for too long though so tables turn quite quickly. We visited mid-afternoon and had to put our name on the wait list but we were called...within 15 minutes. Lovely choice of flavours to choose from and make sure you have a brioche bun to eat with your gelato which is served with or without whipped cream as you prefer.More

Brioche and granita is their specialty and it didn’t disappoint. Staff are helpful and although queues can be long, they strive to fit you in asap. Try to visit near opening times in the height of summer to avoid the queue. Otherwise, off peak times,...you should be ok. Worth a visit.More

Great granite! We were in Sicily for 10 days and tried lots of granite. No one had better texture and flavor than Bam bar. The almond was my favorite!

We went to Bam Bar twice, once for cappuccinos and pastries and the second time for their granita which did not disappoint. The granita was the best that we had in Sicily, definitely worth a visit. Granita is Sicily’s version of gelato, best described as...a snow cone but so much better. If in Taormina make a stop here, you’ll love it!More

Bam Bar is a terrific place to start your day, with a granita with a brioche. It is worth waiting for a bit to get a table outdoors for the atmosphere. If you haven’t tried Granitas before, it is similar to a sorbet. My favorite...was pomegranate, though you’ll have a long list to choose from.More
