DO you prefer your eggs scrambled, poached or fried?

Would you add ketchup or brown sauce to a bacon sandwich?

We’ve had hair, pies and nails, followed by roast dinners and cocktails in our Best of 2023 competition.

Next up we wanted to know where to go for the best breakfast.

Whether it’s a simple bacon sandwich, thick cut toasted bread with butter and jam or a full English – the choice of what to have for breakfast is endless.

Everyone has their favourite breakfast items but we want to know where in Mid Cheshire serves the best food to start the day.

We wanted you to tell us which restaurant, café or pub provides the best breakfast in the area, whether it was somewhere offering a sit-down table service or a quick takeaway option from a roadside truck – the choice was yours!

We’ve shortlisted the top ten, who will battle it out to be named Best for Breakfast in Mid Cheshire.

Now we need your help to choose an overall Best for Breakfast winner from our shortlist.

There are three ways to vote:

1. Search for the Best for Breakfast shortlists post on our Northwich, Winsford and Middlewich, and Knutsford Facebook and Twitter pages and comment under the post with the name of your winner = 1 vote

2. Name your favourite in the comments section on this article via our website = 2 votes

3. Purchase a copy of this week’s Northwich and Winsford Guardian or Knutsford Guardian (Thursday, May 25 edition) and fill in the entry form = 5 votes
