Granites are delicious! You have to try it with cream and brioche too. The staff are lovely. The service is fairly quick too.

Every afternoon I got into the habit of the Bam Bar to have a cool granita. I guess way to explain it is a gelato with crushed ice in a glass. They have 10 flavors but I stuck to strawberry-fragola). So good and so thirst quenching. It costs more to have the drink sitting but still very cheap.

This is a very popular local wine bar which is well known for its granita and brioche. Lots of Italians go there - it has a very lively atmosphere so is a stimulating place to visit on your way up for dinner in the town.

We recently discovered Siciliy, and during our short stay in Taormina woke up early and got lost on the small streets and alleys. We couldn't tell you how to get there, but if you can, discover Bam Bar in the early morning. Part art gallery and coffee shop, seemed to be a great hang out for the locals - and... More

This is a fab little bar just off the Main Street in Taormina. It was quite busy with different tours when we went but it just added to the bustling atmosphere. Huge selection of flavours of granita - had a lovely time.
