Must go for a great breakfast . Had the poutine which was amazing with crispy potatoes and a sweet crepe with berries and cream. My son had fried chicken and French toast which he loved. FYI Mondays the cocktails are 1/2 off!

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!
