On a sunny morning in Palermo, Kalsa district, this is a good place to drink your morning coffee and eat a little something to get the day going.

We enjoyed the great coffees, food, service and atmosphere. We made this our first morning stop every day of our stay in Palermo. It's friendly, non-touristy and in a great neighborhood. All in all, just perfect.

If you'd like to eat good for little money not far from the Palermo city center - this is the place. For example, we had 2 panini, 1 insalate and 2 freshly made lemonades for 15 Eur. Dishes are served by a waiter, smaller things like pastry and coffee you just get at the counter. Therefor they don't charge for... More

Having had a pleasant walk down from the centre of Palermo to the seafront, and then a visit to the fascinating Galleria Regionale della Sicilia Palazzo Abatellis, we were in need of a bit of refreshment. This was just the place. Not large (we could imagine it being easily full in the warmer months) but there are some tables, and... More
