We enjoyed Affogato and we were tempted by a big variety of ice cream. The cafe is located at the huge square so you can relax and contemplate the life or whatever.

Came in here for coffee and ice cream few times. It is the best espresso I found in all the Medina. Outdoor sitting overlooking the main square id also good as you can see the action go by. Check it out!!!
