Absolutely the best granita and coffee too, but diengaged staff seemingly more interested in keeping customers turning over than engaging or smiling, a bit of a shame for a pk ace which is so gresst gfor people watching to feel slightly unwelcome

Beautiful granita. The coffee with cream granita is a great way to start the day and our waiter was more than happy to inform us of Sicilian food traditions.

Dropped into Bambar having eaten pizza just across the lane way. We had the strawberry granita which was delicious although I still can’t work out how the brioche buns works with it. It was quite busy so there were few chairs and tables available.

Great place to either start your day, or end your day. All types of coffee selections, and wonderful creation of granite flavors. Our favorite is strawberry/peach. Great atmosphere.

A nice and cozy coffee bar that served us great espressos. Could be the best espresso we had in the whole town.

Unfriendly welcome when asking for a seat outside when quite a few tables were empty. We have travelled about Sicily and have tried numerous granitas. The menu has over 20 choices but only 6 basic choices were available. The granitas were nothing special like all...More

Lovely place with tasty granitas. Service was a bit rushed. Kiwi peach granita was the best. Other grantitas were a bit too sweet.

Definitely stop here as you wander the streets of Taormina! The granita is fabulous and refreshing, and it just the thing to cool one down after a hot walk.

I visit here every day for a granita. All fresh and delicious. Walk past their window and you will see four people continually cutting fruit. The setting is divine. The staff are fun warm and friendly. Everyone is happy just being there! And those granitas!...More

Surely not the best granita in Taormina. It is quite commercial and overrated in most reviews. We had almond, pistachios, peach and lemon granitas and none deserved a high rating.
