Cafe Aion

The traditional Italian merenda or 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 Italy and Spain. It is served in an atmosphere that is convivial and relaxed—a setting to suit the food's essential virtues.

We aspire to cultivate this tradition in our own local soil. We gather our ingredients from farmers, ranchers and fishmongers we know and admire, and we draw upon the time-honored practices of the osteria and tapas bar as we cook for our friends and neighbors.

"We hadn't been to Aion for a while so went on Wednesday night for the paella and bottle of wine special. Started with tapas - fried cauliflower which is worth a special visit, great mussels and a spanish tortilla (potato pie). My advice: warm up the tortilla, don't serve it ice cold from the fridge, it will have more taste.
The paella had wonderful fresh vegetables and a scattering of jamon. But without something else of substance - chicken, sausage, shrimp, clams or mussels - it is bound to fall short of expectations. Maybe it won't be as perfectly authentic, but I suspect if they added one or two of those items, they'd get more frequent repeat diners.
And great paella needs a crust on the bottom of the pan. None to be found on this one. Making them too fast?
It was good, but could have been great with a few fixes. The paella and wine deal is a nice draw for a Weds when we otherwise wouldn't come in."

"Excellent pairing of Tempranillo and paella special. Hour salad with preserved lemon was delicious as was the flan desert with French press coffee. All was delightful as was the service. Will definitely be going back."

"Tried paella night at Cafe Aion which comes with a bottle of wine and paella for 2-4. The wine was a Tempranillo from Spain. It was medium bodied, fruity, and paired well with paella for dining on a warm Spring eve. It takes 30-40 minutes to prepare the paella, so we ordered 3 Step Wings to munch on. The two wings and two drumsticks were crisp and golden on the outside and moist and tender inside. We loved the mediterranean twist to the spicy wings. The paella came in a 9-10 inch paella pan. The profile that night was spring peas, asparagus, and manila clams. I was delighted to find the saffron hued rice had excellent socarrat on the bottom characteristic of paella. The peas were so large and fresh, they must have been hand shucked that morning. I would have preferred asparagus tips versus stems, but luckily they were of the thin and tender variety. A generous heaping of manila clams provided the protein. One caveat, this portion was enough for two at the most, and for some, maybe too delicious to share with anyone else."

"Enjoyed our Easter brunch. Delicious coffee, loved the bottle of bubbles and oj combo. Pastries as good as ever. Only comment would be that the lox share plate was not really executed in a shared manner. Portion was normal serving of lox bagel and quite small for 15 or so dollars..only came with one bagel (would have thought two small or maybe some crostini) and very little scrambled egg. There were just two of us. I thought it odd it came with sliced tomato which was of course pretty flavorless in Colorado in May instead of something seasonal. Over all though, great meal."

"We really wanted to like this tapas restaurant. The atmosphere is chill and rustic but hip. The service was really top notch. But the sangria, which I have to say I have tried many, well it was nothing to write about, not awful, just not great. The biggest disappointment was the portions. I get tapas is suppose to be small, but some of the dishes were almost 2 bites. The beef rib was $12 and was maybe 1 ounce, most of the tiny bowl was a bone, I said something to the server and she said yes it was suppose to be that small and that no I wasn't the first to question the size and she was kind of embarrassed to bring it to tables, as she should be, it was rather inadequate. Don't charge $12 for 2 bites of beef. They did have gluten free bread if you ask which was great. The cauliflower dish was to die for, everything else tasted ok but was nothing special."

"Went for the Denver Restaurant Week special, and found a gem. We picked 2 of each course and everything was great. I like when a restaurant woos you with quality not quantity. Service was very prompt and helpful but not overbearing. I love paella and will be going back to try it and the tapas."

"Food was incredibly bland and took over an hour to come out. A few of us ordered desert and they said they ran out but would make us some to take home. We waited for dessert but shouldn't have as it was not good at all. I will not be returning to Cafe Aion."

"We weren't looking for a big meal so the tapas menu was ideal and everything was delicious and quite inventive. Don't miss the fried cauliflower. Their Negroni was among the best we've ever had. The waitstaff were attentive and fun to chat with."

"We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience at Café Aion for Valentine's Day brunch - we began with a mimosa, then had a shared a plate from the special brunch menu, and donut holes for dessert - perfect! Loved the eclectic feel of the place and bopped to the music. Servers checked on us just enough to clear plates or take our next order. Will definitely return to try other dishes as everything we ate was delicious."

"I ate at Cafe Aion before attending a function on the CU campus. This is a good restaurant for this purpose because you can go early and find a parking place, easily walk to the restaurant and easily walk to whatever function you are attending on the campus. My wife and I have done this before and undoubtedly will do it again in the future. As for the food, it was okay; however, I think there are better, similarly-priced restaurants in downtown Boulder - e.g., the Med. I started with the carrot soup (pretty good), followed by the short-rib tapa (pretty good). I also had a glass of the Godello (very good) and a glass of the Tempranillo (so-so). Since I had some time to kill before the CU program started, I had a dish of vanilla ice cream, with olive oil and sea salt. At only $4.00, this was a steal. All-in-all, the meal was satisfactory for the price and, as I said above, the location is perfect if you're visiting the campus."

"Convenient location on the hill, but such a refreshing restaurant in the "hill scene." Great food, great coffee, and great outdoor seating when it's nice out. Highly recommend!"

"This was my 3rd visit for paella and wine night in a Wednesday in the past few months. The first two times we were able to select any paella off the regular menu and the wine as part of the special was nice! This last time or server told us that the special only applied for the nightly special paella, musells, clams and shallots. The paella was good, not spectacular. The first glass of the wine for us both was hard to drink. It improved substantially as it opened up. The ambiance is great and if you can get the house paella, it's an absolute find!"

"We have love Cafe Aion for breakfast. It's just a great neighborhood find.
We have tried dinner there a few times and keep hoping and wanting it to be better. I think after last weekend, we decided it's best to stick to breakfast.
We ordered 6 tapas and a paella. The food was fine - just not great. The company and the ambiance were great....the wine really good, the service fine...but the food, meh . Paella had fresh ingredients, but bland and was burned on the bottom.
Still a fan...just not for our next dinner gathering."
