Caffe Spinnato is one of those cafes with a deep history, like Cafe Flore or Les Deux Magots in Paris. A major difference with Caffe Spinnato, however, is that a glance at the prices on the menu does not induce a heart-attack. They still attract locals with their amazing food, ice cream, and pastries. The interior of the cafe has an old world feel to it- it used to be the establishment for Palermo's elite and in some ways still is. On any given day, you will find businessmen in suits, multi-generational families, and young lovers tucked away in corners ignoring their caffè.
We enjoyed a delicious spaghetti alla Trapanese
After enjoying a leisurely lunch, we walked over to the pastry case and saw the most attractive and scrumptious-looking cake. They cut us a slice and brought it back to our table.
