We came for coffee and granita. At 6 pm the place was busy and no tables were available outside so we had to sit inside. The service is quick and friendly, design is worthy to mention. The waiter seems to speak all the languages :)))...More

Popped in for a coffee but couldn’t resist the gelato - it was delicious. Bam Bar has seating outside and is a perfect place to sit and watch the world go by.

Went here for a pre lunch snack and coffee. Was really nice. Quick service and tasty Granita. Nice for a quick refreshing stop on a hot day.

Truly the best we tried in Sicily and we tried quite a few. Would go back for more flavors. Definitely worth it to try it with the brioche!

We went back twice. Fabulous service great coffee ( double expressive with hot water on the side) and the Granita’s are to die for. For those that like Cherry Ripes the mix of raspberry and chocolate is pretty close. The pastries are pretty good too.

Nice place always busy. Granita good as are the drinks but let down by the service.We visited the Bam Bar as it was close to our apartment but I would say just OK.
