VOTE: Where Do You Order Your Bacon and Eggs?

Lisle Patch is kicking off the year with a way for residents to celebrate the best restaurants and retailers the village has to offer. This week share your favorite breakfast spot.

Maybe you don't think of world-famous cuisine when you think of the western suburbs, but it is where you eat most of your meals and run most of your errands. That qualifies you as an expert on where to go.

While spots like the and are recognized regionally for their specialiteis (beer and burgers, respectively), Patch wants to know who Lisle residents designate the 'best of' in their village.

Over the next several weeks we'll be asking residents to vote for the local businesses they use and trust. We'll be pitting cuisines against each other (do you order your pizza from or ? ribs from or ?). In addition to restaurants, we want to know where you have your car tuned up, get your hair cut, take your drycleaning, even picnic.


We're kicking off the series with the first meal of the day: breakfast. Whether it's for your daily commute donut or Sunday morning feast, click on your favorite spot at the bottom of this article.


How to vote
Patch will introduce its Best Of candidates each Wednesday morning. Readers have until the following Wednesday afternoon to voice their opinion via poll or write-in vote in the comments section. For purposes of keeping the contest manageable, only establishments within village limits are eligible. (Chain options, like McDonald's or Starbucks, will always require a write-in vote.)

Recommend a regular dish, nail technician, drink? Have a favorite spot that's out of town? Make a note in the comments.

EDITOR'S NOTE: The Best Of series is for-fun purposes only, because it's winter, and kind of boring. Voters are on the honor system. Please, keep comments constructive and friendly. This space is for celebrating who you think deserves to be called the best of the village, and obviously opinions will vary. We have a spot on the site for providing your specific customer experiences, and it's called our Places directory.


As always, anyone with questions about the contest or nominations (for future categories, businesses, or service providers) can contact Editor Karlie Baker at karlie@patch.com.

I am going to try to unravel the two issues here: "as inaccurate as denying that gasoline prices haven't doubled..." is the equivalent of "as inaccurate as saying that gasoline prices have doubled." I'm not sure if you meant to say that, but it's true. Gas prices certainly have not doubled under Obama. Your statistics are also flawed in that my comment was when Obama first came to office, not that inflation has not since overcome the brief declines. Moreover, you cite one year and Obama has been President for more than just 2011. Inflation is caused by a number of things and can be expected/desired by any economy at reasonable levels. Recent increases in prices are likely tied to lack of the traditional winter decline in gas prices, which is not related to Obama but instead to uncertainties in the Middle east. Moreover, 3.7% is not a terrible inflation rate. Nothing I said was actually a defense of Obama, it actually began with "not that it's a good thing" because deflation is bad. I was simply pointing out a factual inaccuracy.
