One cannot simply go to Taormina and not have a granita at Bam Bar. Personally, it’s one of my favourite places to go when in Taormina and the granita is simply the best!
The brioche that is severed with the semi-frozen desert is just as good. It’s not soggy, but a really fresh product. At first, I found it odd, being served a brioche and a granita at the same time but in reality it’s simply tasty! And also, I believe that it’s a Sicilian tradition.
I highly recommend this little Granita place in the narrow streets of Taormina. It’s in a side street and I had to find it on google maps, but it’s not so far from when you enter the village from the main gate.
The place is ‘an attraction’ in itself. The tables and the place are colourful. To put it simply, it’s not an average place. It’s welcoming and the staff are nice too.
It’s calmer in Winter time but in Summer, you’d be lucky if you get a table quickly. Usually you have to wait for a few minutes. It is worth the wait though!
