The Aviary Cafe and Creperie, a "newbie" to the Springfield restaurant scene just a couple of years ago, has evolved into one of the area's best restaurants. Their menu offers hearty-from-scratch dishes that utilize premium ingredients, local farm fresh seasonal vegetables, and their very own baked goods. If you have yet to try one of their crepes, we highly recommend going. Like, today. Right now. Seriously.
Interior: A mixture of French culture and Andy Warhol.
Staff: Wonderful. It was our waiter's second day, but he was excellent.
Cuisine: We ordered the Aviary Chicken Salad Sandwich, the Sandwich en Bresse (braised chicken in a creamy Gouda sauce with tarragon pesto aioli. Served on grilled sourdough), and the Steak Frites (pan seared steak searved with pomme frites) for lunch. All dishes were excellent. We highly recommend the Chicken Salad Sandwich.
Prices: Expect to spend $12-$16 a person on lunch.
Overall: 8.75/10. One of our favorites!
