The Aviary's crepes are better than any I've had in Belgium or on high-end cruise ships or in high-end restaurants. They far surpass those made at the nationally famous La Crepe place in Austin TX (my home town). I think Aviary's recipe is astounding. I wouldn't be surprised if this place ends up on a Food channel show.

We headed in for brunch, some of us in the mood for breakfast, some for lunch. I myself ended up ordering the limoncello crepe, and I must say I was very satisfied with the results. It was unlike anything I had ever eaten, unique in the very best way. The portions are quite large, so I could not finish my... More

I was recently in Springfield, Missouri and the hotel recommended this restaurant. As I prefer the local restaurants when I travel, I decided to try it. I ate the salmon creeps and found them so good I went back the next day for the lemoncello crepes that were truly amazing. I live 2 hours away and would drive those 2... More

This is a favorite with females. It is unique having a style all it's own. Go to their bakery after you eat so you won't be tempted to buy one of each. Don't go there if you are on a time schedule. Service is inconsistent as far as time....sometimes long sometimes longer. Having said that, it is worth the wait.... More

Love the quaint little corner cafe on Walnut Street in downtown Springfield. The creeps are very tasty, and the atmosphere is great!!! The newest location off of Republic Road is very yummy, too!!!

The Aviary Cafe and Creperie in located in the Farmer's Market complex in Springfield, MO. I don't know if they source the local farmers at the market for their fruits, vegetables, meat or eggs as I didn't see anything indicating they did. Now I'll say upfront that it is hard for me to eat out, especially in the Ozarks, as... More

The new Farmer's Market Location has much better service than the downtown location. Service has been poor downtown times that I have visited. Farmer's market service has been friendly.There is sometimes a very long wait for your food so if ordering a dessert crepe, you may consider ordering it ahead of time before finishing your main entree. I really prefer... More

The food at Aviary is always very good. I'm a bigger fan of the deserts than the entrées, but both are pretty good. Its a little pricey for what you get. On our most recent visit the worst part was the service. I wish I could say this was a fluke, but bad service is a constant here. We felt... More

We LOVED this restaurant and didn't mind the short wait (Saturday morning) because we could just wander through the Farmer's Market while we waited. They called my cell phone when our table was ready. Yummy food and Bloody Mary's! Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Must go.
