Good granita, friendly staff but no atmosphere - busy place, seemed to me like a spot where you go to buy some food after party. Pretty looking pastry.

Good place to have a Granita, Coffee, along with brioche and gelato and all kinds of great cakes and frozen desserts. Excellent value for what you get and a nice place to take a break from the sun.

I went in for the gelato and absolutely loved it. Double scoop on a cone for just 1.90 euros was a great deal too. I brought it outside across the street to eat by the harbour. The area is nice and quiet, less touristy. I...More
