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).

Located in Arcireale, a village in the province of Catania, Flora Café offers a wide selection of food including delectable pizza, wonderful buffets and excellent piadinas. They host live music events on a regular basis, making for a great party atmosphere. They open pretty early, so it is a great place for breakfast and brunch too.
