Caffe’ Sicilia, Noto, Sicily

August 31st, 2010 § 2 comments

We travelled to Sicily just to eat at this patisserie/bar called Caffe Sicilia. It was worth two overnight trains, a three hour drive and the complications of rescheduling an extra day, they’re closed on Mondays, as we found out, the hard way.

L to R: Some sort of milk pudding, vanilla layered cake with hazlenuts and at the bottom, a Sicilian speciality, Cassata, an almond marzipan with cream filling, icing and candied fruit.

Strawberry and tomato granita.

Basil gelato.

The aftermath.

This was all in one sitting. It was a beautiful moment in my life.

    Thanks for the comment Julian! Of course I got some pastries and biscuits to take home. Everything was fantastic.

    Nice shots of some of the exceptional items on offer at Cafe Sicilia…I can attest to the flavor of both the layered cake and the Cassata…did you get them to pack some items for you to enjoy on the way home?
