On Monday, we asked readers to vote for the best spot in town to grab a cup of coffee by adding reviews to the Patch Places directory. Most new reviews by 5 p.m. tomorrow wins.
The winner will face off against the most popular coffee spots in New Lenox and Frankfort in the Jan. 28 Chowdown Showdown.
So with one day left to vote, let's see who's winning and give one last shot to have your say.
Reader Marietta Kafka Glass said of Front Porch Coffee:
Best Coffee...Best gifts...Best, wonderful, friendly, Owners!!
Eggcetera's downtown location by the Metra has three votes in its favor. (And has the editor's vote too after Friday, when Dino got one of the kitchen guys to help me jump my car in the snow after I left the headlights on.)
This is definitely the place to go for breakfast or lunch. The coffee is always fresh. The service is great. The food is like homemade. The prices are very reasonable. *****
Great coffee and food, atmosphere much better than the 191st location.
MMF went simple, writing:
Want to add to Eggcetera's lead? Want to give your favorite coffee spot its rightful recognition? There's still a chance.
Voting ends at 5 p.m. Sunday.
