Café Sasso identifies very much as a second-wave coffeehouse. Says one of the owners, "You walk into these [third-wave] coffee shops and it's usually no art on the wall, very minimalistic science-y lab and that's cool, and that's been hitting big the last four years. . . We're old school; we're like the 1960s poetry, art music - independent second wave is not going anywhere. We're here, we're strong."1 The interior is done up in an Art Nouveau style.
The location was previously the Park Ave Boulder. It was purchase in 2015 by longtime employees Peter and Jessica. The word sasso means "stone" in Italian, an homage to their origins. They reopened as Café Sasso in May 2015.
