The Aviary Cafe is a charming little cafe in downtown Springfield. The crepes, both sweet and savory are generous and delicious. My coffee cup was never empty, and our server even sent me with a cup to go!

On a recent visit I had the French onion soup and Brussels sprouts. The sprouts are, as they say, to die for—but far better to live for and enjoy another day. The salted caramel dessert crepe is also delicious, as was the crepe Florentine. Kayti,...More
