We stopped off here and sat in their pretty outside eating area for a cappuccino and the most perfect pistachio cream filled croissant I've ever had. Their freshly squeezed orange juice was lovely too.

We only stopped for a little bit of icecream. It was really good and tasty and we enjoyed it quite a lot. The service was a bit rough but maybe tribute to my English and behaving not local in terms of sequence between order and...More

On a sunny morning in Palermo, Kalsa district, this is a good place to drink your morning coffee and eat a little something to get the day going.

We enjoyed the great coffees, food, service and atmosphere. We made this our first morning stop every day of our stay in Palermo. It's friendly, non-touristy and in a great neighborhood. All in all, just perfect.

Great place to have breakfast at a very good location in the middle of Palermo. Their ricotta and white chocolate croissants are the best.

Perfect place ! Quiet, good food and nice people. Palermo is very loud and such a place is rare ! Enjoy it... We took salads and they are very good.

If you'd like to eat good for little money not far from the Palermo city center - this is the place. For example, we had 2 panini, 1 insalate and 2 freshly made lemonades for 15 Eur. Dishes are served by a waiter, smaller things...More

Situato nel cuore del centro storico, dove si elevano maestosi i più antichi palazzi nobiliari di tutta la città. Una piccola Oasi dove tra un caffè e un cornetto o una fresca insalata o un gustoso panino, puoi sentire i profumi della storia. Suggestiva l’aria che si respira, affascinante tutto il contesto. Un break da noi ti distrae dal tram tram quotidiano e poi ricorda….Casa Obatalà “porta bene”.
