Hi Gloria,

You will hear-

 'T'aimes ça? 

'T'as faim? 

in every day very informal speech (within a family setting) but normally the Tu would not be elided ...

Salut Cecile,

Would friends of the same age also use "T'as"?

Between friends definitely although a parent might use 'tu as faim' to a child to teach him/her to speak 'properly'.....
