The Best Breakfasts and Brunches In Catania, Italy

Luca Pinelli

Catania is a great destination whether you’re looking for culture, nature, or great food. We’ve put together a list of tasty breakfasts and brunches in Catania for those who want to kick-start their touring day with excellent food and delicious drinks, be it sweet or savoury.


Blanc à Manger

Bakery, Restaurant, Italian, French, American

With a wide and diverse range of burgers, including those which customers can build with ingredients of their own choosing, and a bakery catering to the sweet-toothed, Blanc à Manger promises to be an enjoyable stop off on any Sicilian holiday.

Established in 1946, Mantegna is a household name in Catania when it comes to patisseries. They specialize in all that is sweet, along with hot drinks such as tea and hot chocolate, but they also serve aperitivo and cocktails for those looking for an extra boost during the day or after dinner. Amongst their products are Sicilian specialities too: cannoli, cassata, and torrone (even the ice-cream variant).

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
