I don’t understand why this cafe is so over rated. It is just an average cafe and i didn’t find it particularly friendly. The caffe granita was average - nothing special apart from the price. Was charged 5 euros for a granita today and 1.70 for a small brioche. Plus 2 euros service charge. So come on those who think this cafe is top notch. 8 euros for a granita with small blob a cream and a average brioche is well over the top!!

You can get much better down the street. Noto is nice but the Main Street is a tourist trap at certain places like Caffe Sicily. I had exactly the same 50 yards away the other day and paid 3.50. And over in the beautiful Ortigia where I live, you can get far better in the ultra friendly market cafe , with much more cream, and a bigger brioche and friendly waitresses for just 3.50 euros. My advice is stay away, and leave it to the stupid tourists who want to be seen eating there.

Not worth a visit unless you are a sucker for Sicilian cakes, which looked very nice, though didn’t dare ask the price.

Ordering the vanilla canola, a brioche and 3 flavors of the granite was the best thing I did in Sicily. The taste exquisite. Seriously. It is not to be missed.

Three flavours of granita including strawberry and tomato, apricot and almond. Lemon granite, outrageous chocolate canola, good coffee. Maybe others are as good but we had to come because of Chefs Table!
