Now I must admit I'm an ice cream rather than a granita girl - granite are flavoured sugar syrups which have been frozen - and I haven't acquired the Sicilian habit of dipping bits of my morning brioche into either.  On the hottest days, however, I do like a goodly dollop of lemon granita in a very cold peach or lemon tea and if I am going to have a full glass of granita, I'll usually go for a gelsi [mulberry] one.

I was interested to read today that in last year's Dissapore ranking of the top 25 establishments offering granita in Italy the first 21 were in Sicily, with the Caffè Sicilia in Noto topping the list. Modica makes an appearance at no. 13.

Ok, so who's for dunking?

Cafe Sicilia is in all the guide books.

Too bad we won't make it to the baroque towns this time, but hopefully something in Palermo, Cefalu, Lipari, or Catania will be comparable.

Recommendations welcome!

I recommend an ice cream in a brioche in Catania!
