The cafés in Sicilia are beautiful. They sell coffee, pastries, ice cream, and hot foods. My favorite thing to order is a cappuccino. But, as I learned from a friend in my Italian class, Italians never order cappuccinos after lunch and that piece of advice helped me when I was over there! One item I would suggest to not order would be the hot chocolate. The hot chocolate over there is not the same as it is here and in my personal opinion, it is worse. They make their hot chocolate very thick and almost taste chalky.
