Cafe aion

Cafe Aion, Boulder's own local cafe, is built upon what the local land has to offer and the talents of friends working behind the counter. The traditional Spanish tapa is a simple but beautiful offering. Its presentation is honest and straightforward, its preparation a tribute to the craft and techniques developed over centuries in the homes, farms, and humble taverns of Spain. It is served in an atmosphere that is convivial and relaxed—a setting to suit the food’s essential virtues. Cafe Aion aspires to cultivate this tradition in their own local soil. They gather their ingredients from farmers, ranchers and fishmongers they know and admire, and they draw upon the time-honored practices of the osteria and tapas bar as they cook for their friends and neighbors.

In addition to killer subs, Cheba Hut also offers a large craft beer selection, salads and munchies. The "love" is what sets Cheba Hut apart so hit it up and find your inner Cheba. They combine homegrown food with real people in a relaxed environment.
