I like the location, and the waitstaff were pretty good. The reason this doesn't get a higher rating is because the food was either boring or ill conceived. We were a group of four and tried basically everything on the tapas menu. The quick rundown...More

My wife and I had lunch here at the end of our stay in Boulder. The ambiance is very casual, as you probably would expect near campus. The cafe was fairly busy for early afternoon on a Friday. But we got a table quite quickly....More

Had a business meeting and went here for a light lunch. I had never been before and was pleasantly surprised by the Spaniard dish. The eggs weren't anything special but the type of salsa that came with the potatoes was absolutely amazing!

We've been several times -- the food can be very good but the service is uneven and we've had to rush because service was so slow we were going to miss a concert

This was an easy brunch stop after we hiked nearby. It was great for a large group and accommodating for our toddler. Great menu items - don't miss the croissants or the fried to order donut!! We really enjoyed our stop here and had no...More

Cafe Aion is a great choice on The Hill, especially if you are headed to the Shakespeare Festival or any of the cultural events held on the CU campus. The food is delicious, the choices varied, and the prices are reasonable.
