Cafe ‘ Rocher Catania

Hello everybody!

One of my plans for 2019 is to try and write more often, and more original content, not just language lessons, but also short stories and travel related posts!

This week’s Travel Thursday is more like a history lesson than a review, seeing as the place I am talking about is permanently closed.

I have spent several my winter holidays in Catania for several years, and it was a beautiful place. It was really nice to enjoy Christmas at 15 degrees Celsius, even though everybody was bunddled up as though it was freezing.

One of my favorite tips for tourists in Catania would be to enjoy happy hour! In this part of Sicily, as I have found, happy hour means that for every cocktail you order, you receive some sort of appetizer.

Cafe Rocher was really great, and the food was really good! It was the place where I learned to love Pasta alla Norma (and the only place where I actually enjoyed eggplant!), and their desserts were quite decadent also.

One of the reasons why I liked Cafe Rocher was because their happy hour offer extended to beer also (not many bars offered appetizers for beer, only for cocktails), and I was there with my now husband, who isn’t really a fan of cocktails.

Do you have any such tips for other tourists?
