Restaurant: Jaca, Aragon!

So back to my latest routine showcasing the best memorable family eating places in my world. This time take you back north to the wonderful town of Jaca, Province of Huesca in the Autonomous Region of  Aragon, Kingdom of Spain. Just before hitting the mountains of the pyrénées going or coming from France.

And while here to see the wonderful Cathedral , etc, (see my posts on them)  we have to eat! and eat we did well a feast for my nostalgic memories of my beloved Spain. Let met tell you a bit more on two memorable spots in Jaca.

First we went for the food and found a nice busy restaurant overlooking the Cathedral so we sat in to eat lol! This is Casa Fau, Plaza Catedral 3,  Jaca.

Jaca

Ideally located in front of the magnificent portico of the Cathedral. The tapas are really excellent, we prefer the tapas and raciones to share. The reception is correct and fast service.  An unbeatable situation in front of the Cathedral of Jaca, terrace under the stone arcades, a bar full of tapas and skewers … Casa Fau is a classic in the world of tapas.  You  have a loyal clientele eager to try these delicacies in one of the most emblematic spots of the city.

We really had seen the bakery before and opted to come here for the dessert and what a great decision that was, and continues. After much wandering to the side streets having cheese breads from the local bakeries and did went shopping for sweets to take home at Confiteria/Pasteleria Etcheto , right next to the restaurant above.

Pasteleria Etcheto , Plaza Catedral 5,  Jaca.  The confectionery Echeto is one of the ones of all your life and to enter it is to go back in the past. Everything was delicious, but in particular the ice creams (homemade) and especially the chocolate ice cream are very good. La Pastelería Echeto, is one of the great  confectioneries, famous for all the great traditional sweets of Jaca, such as the Besos (kisses) , the coronettes (crowns) and the bows of Santa Orosia. If you come to Jaca to visit , do not forget to visit this bakery. It’s really is a must. Enjoy it

And remember, happy travels, good health ,and many cheers to all!!!
