This family-run bar specialises in the traditional granita, available in many different flavours such as coffee, pistachio and white chocolate. It is possible to couple it with a warm "brioche col tuppo", a Sicilian pastry. The bar is pretty small, but you can also enjoy your dessert on the go, while strolling through town.


If you're searching for a breakfast spot, you can head to a local "pasticceria"(pastry shop). In Italy the traditional breakfast (la prima colazione) consists of a latte and whatever your sweet tooth may have you crave. The astute Sicilians, however, came up with an idea to combine the morning meal with a refreshing solution to cope with the hot summer of the Mediterranean island: pair a "granita", which is Italian slush, with a "brioche col tuppo"and you'll get the ideal Sicilian breakfast.
