Came here every day for breakfast in our week in Taormina. Marmalade croissant was out of this world. The owners are super nice. The little fig thing in the shape of a circle was beyond awesome.

This outdoor spot was right at the top of the street leading from our hotel. We had a relaxing mid-morning snack of pastries and espresso while watching the fooot traffic along Curso Umberto.

I was too full from dinner to eat anything so only stopped here for a coffee. But the outdoor tables were an excellent place to watch the world go by in the evening. I actually imagine it could be too busy and just too close to the action during the day time when the street is packed with tourists!

Great spot for an evening espresso and cannoli or for a sweet breakfast! A great variety of sweets and drinks to choose from including granita. Seating available inside and outside.

This was recommended by our air B and B host and I am so glad we went! Friendly hosts, the most delicious cannoli and cassata, and lovely coffee. We sat out in the sunshine yesterday, eating, drinking, chatting and watching the world go by for nearly 4 hours! Just such a treat! We are going back today!!!

Dropped past after a good dinner to get a ricotta cannoli. Glad we did. They were awesome. The guy went around the back and filled them with fresh cream. If you're in Taormina you should try one

Yu will easy find this Pasticceria at Corso Umebrto, it is small traditional local with just a few tables for take a sit in a front. They have a small selection of ice cream made on traditional way, and they are excelllent. But the thing I would recomed for sure is to try their cannellni.

This is a popular place on the Corso. So popular that five tour groups stopped and pointed at the windows, or at something, in the time we were sitting outside this morning. The thing is the coffee was not very good by italian standards. Maybe it was an off day and maybe this is more a place for desserts. Who... More

If you can get a table, it is an excellent place to take a break from strolling along looking at shops, and watch the world go by. I can recommend the coffee and ice cream. The canoli was ok, but maybe I just don't like it much. The hot chocolate was good but more like chocolate sauce than a drink.

Thank Chris N
