We stopped here on our way to Taormina and Mount Etna. This is a great bakery / coffee shop. The cannoli are fantastic (ask for them if they are not on display!!)

Very old fashioned sweets baker - and all the better for it. Great cinnamon choux buns and delicious cannoli. The marzipan carved into fruit is an art in itself. The coffee room is lovely and dignified. Authentically lovely.
