It was an interesting week in Patch’s Best Of across our area, with polls focused on some of our favorite morning activities – breakfast and coffee.
Doylestown users selected best coffee and, in a relatively close race, Nonnos Cafe came out on top with 30% of the vote. User Chuck Hall said “… I go to Nonno's often. Owners are local, and very nice people.”
Down the road in Warminster, users debated who had the best breakfast in town. A tight race turned into a runaway victory for Little Leo's Cafe. "I didn't even know about the poll until Wednesday," said owner Julie Spagnolia, who opened Little Leo's 10 years ago. "By the time I posted it to our Facebook page, we were already ahead. I'm so excited about this. It shows what a great community we have here."
Breakfast lovers in Hatboro-Horsham picked Lochel's Family Restaurant and most folks who commented highlighted service as a factor. User Kathie Butler Hart likes Daddypops and said, “The staff is friendly, you get more food than you can eat, it's the place where everyone knows your name and is so comfortable that a lady can sit at the counter alone and enjoy a meal.”
One of the most heated contests happened in Bensalem where almost 4,000 votes were cast. When the dust settled, Pookie’s took top breakfast with more than 2,300 votes with Red House Bagels in second with more than 1,500 votes. “Pookies is the absolute greatest breakfast restaurant in Bensalem!!” user Jennifer Gajderowicz wrote. “The food is always fresh and delicious! And it is one of cleanest restaurant that I have been to!”
Coffee drinkers had their say in Lower Southampton and they picked Wawa has having the best cup o' joe. Robyn left a comment on the poll saying that "Wawa on Brownsville is the best...coffee the way YOU like it and friendly staff too!"
Northampton voters voted along the same lines picking the Richboro Wawa as having the best cup of coffee in the township. User Eric S said he believes Richboro could support a regular coffee shop. “Yeah, I think it could if the shop is in the right spot and provides the right atmosphere,” he wrote. “I think most people want a decent cup at a reasonable price in a place where you can just sit down and relax.”
Levittown users like their coffee, too and picked Village Mart as the top cup.
Starbucks dominated in Newtown in the vote for best coffee, but one user added a caveat. "Starbucks for a place to linger, meet, people watch," said one user. "But, when I need a coffee, it's Dunkin."
In Lower Moreland the discussion centered on the best place to work out. Well, folks in the Huntingdon Valley must like their exercise the old fashion way, as more than half chose a walk through the park as their favorite.
