Three Layer’s Café in historic Springfield is a coffeehouse and bakery that offers gourmet coffee and the delicious cakes from which it gets its name. There’s a lunch menu too, of course, full of paninis and pasta salads, with a create-your-own salad bar to boot. You can find beer and wine tucked into a separate section of the shop known as the Cellar, but what you’re really here for are the desserts. Triple-layered red velvet and carrot cakes are always in high demand, as are their miniaturized cake ball counterparts – served in threes, of course. There’s a relaxing garden spot for dining out back and the simple red brick, dark wood trim, wood tables and chairs and lots of window lighting make the café a cozy spot. Three Layers also features local folk musicians regularly.
