Popped in just before a visit to the Greek theatre. I had a pretty awful Espresso whilst my friend had a caffe latte and an awful Pain au Chocolate which was either factory made or very badly home made. The staff weren't very friendly and we were overcharged. Not recommended.

We picked Shaker Bar because it was in a great location, however, the food was terrible. When we stepped into the bar, we suspected that, there were no kitchen, but they provided a full menu. as soon as we ordered, we realized that most of the food were microwave food. If you only stop by for a cup of coffee, then you might be okay, but never come this place for meal.

This was our place to stop at least once a day during our 10 day sta in taormina. I would love to have my cappuccino and wathc the people as they walked through the square. The kids felt that the shaker bar had the best gelato and they couldnt wait until we got there and made it their first stop. Service is great! A definite must see.

The Shaker Bar is right beside the police station in the Piazza Vittorio Emanuele. For a town as touristy as Taormina it feels first and foremost like a local bar, although the staff can all speak enough English and German to make sure you get the order you're looking for. They have a regular clientele and it's fun watching the chat and banter between local people as you sit and drink your coffee. I've been there often on my visits to Taormina and the staff changes very little from year to year. Would recommend.

We visited Shaker Bar after walking out of the Tzinaczia Bar next door after waiting for more than 15 mins to be served and being made to feel really unwelcome.
The difference was quite amazing! The moment we set foot in Shaker Bar we were greeted with a warm welcome and served immediately. The coffee and the lemon granita were excellent. The pavement tables are well placed to give you a good view across the small square - and time to watch the world go by.
