Superb place to have a drink or Granita and watch the world go by. On The corner of a few streets so very interesting to people watch.

Terrific place for Granita (and coffee etc.) We were recommended Bam Bar for its Granita (as opposed to gellato). It's terrific. The flavors are great and the people watching fum

I loved this place. They have great croissants(especially con crema!) here, a big choice of granita, good prices as for Taormina. I loved their Prosecco and Aperol Spritz, the prices for drinks were also lower than average. This place is always crowded, day and night.

Try the almond one. Their coffee is good too. The Brioch is excellent. You can sit outside which is nice. The staff is very friendly.

Great location, lots going on, super for people watching and enjoying your ice cream and beer.. It's right at the entrance of a very famous street with intriguing houses/plants.. Well worth a visit..

I believe the bar is over rated. The gravitas are good but the place is a bit chaotic. I had better granitas on the island. If you are in town it may be worth a visit if you need to kill some time.
