This is a must visit for the best granita and brioche. You haven't tasted granita until you eat here. Coffee is also amazing. Don't be put off by the host as he may come across rude but is actually not! Make sure you go here!

Everyone who goes to Taormina should try granita and brioche at BamBar. It was absolutely delicious, the staff was very kind and the prices were very affordable. Trust me, this granita doesn't compare with any other.

Bar mainly famous for granitas. Granitas really good but 50% more expensive comparing to other non-touristic places

We stumbled across Bam Bar by good fortune. We were looking for breakfast, which is their speciality. The waiter was charming, the ambience Italian and the granita with cream and warm brioche excellent. Enjoy it for what it is. Oh and the coffee was top...More
