If your idea of inspiration is shopping the counters of the Truffle Cheese Shop on Sixth Avenue or Cured in Boulder, then you need to check out Eat + Drink, a tiny cheese and gourmet shop that opened next door to Savory Spice Shop on Platte Street. Specializing in a global array of cheeses, as well as charcuterie, rustic breads, hard-to-find chocolates, and olive oils, Eat + Drink is a little slice of food-loving heaven.

The shop (which is an offshoot of the beloved Eat! Drink! in Edwards) also offers small plates and a moderate but well edited wine list, including eight rosés by the glass and a private label Cava. Pair your selection with a bountiful cheese or charcuterie plate or opt for a panino like the California made on Grateful Bread focaccia with Taleggio, fresh pear, sliced turkey, and fig preserves.

Don’t miss: Mast Brothers craft chocolate bars (pictured). Look for flavors such as Vanilla & Smoke or the Papua New Guinea bar with hints of hickory smoked bacon and aged Scotch.
