My sister had a birthday yesterday and we always have a date for lunch.
This year we headed downtown to a new little spot called The Aviary.
A light and bright little restaurant that specializes in all kinds of crepes.
Springfield is like most cities where for years
the downtown area was "less than" quaint.
The midtown area of Springfield is home to three major Universities;
Missouri State, Drury, and Evangel.
It's a "college town" for sure.
Within the last ten years we've seen our downtown turn around
with lots of restaurants, small businesses, and specialty shops.
It's become quite trendy, that's turning the corner
on making the downtown area a great addition to our city.
I couldn't get as many photos as I'd liked inside
but it's very shabby vintage,
with lot's of old birdcages, branches, and great ambiance.
The food was fabulous,
but we were so hungry we dove in without taking time for photos.
Savory Chicken and Mushroom Crepe
with heavenly French Onion Soup.
A wonderful church pew that's been married to an architectural piece.
Here's my mom and sis,
aren't they so cute?
Inside the "Girl's Room"
We found this great chippy orange door across the street
with wonderful hardware.
Just had to get a shot.
My sis blended right in!
Hope you're having a great weekend
and enjoying this first week of Fall.
