I loved this place. They have great croissants(especially con crema!) here, a big choice of granita, good prices as for Taormina. I loved their Prosecco and Aperol Spritz, the prices for drinks were also lower than average. This place is always crowded, day and night.

Try the almond one. Their coffee is good too. The Brioch is excellent. You can sit outside which is nice. The staff is very friendly.
