For being a small town, Paonia has some great restaurants that meet any budget. The flying fork is known for high-end italian food. Take advantage of Paonia’s perfect summertime evening and enjoy your meal on their patio. If you’re into local food, it doesn’t get any more local than the eats from the Living Farm Cafe. Most of the food is grown within a 10 mile radius. Their seasonal menus are always changing for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Into food trucks? Then don’t miss Taco Bliss or One-Two Thai (definitely staff favorites). If you’re looking for a late-night meal, Hightower Cafe is the place to go!
