There were a number of opinions about the best place to get breakfast in Somerville, but when the dust settled there was one winner: Ball Square Cafe.
We tallied votes, comments and reviews to determine the winner.
Anyone who passes through Ball Square on a Saturday or Sunday can attest to the long lines out the door at this breakfast and lunch hotspot.
When we called late Friday morning to inform Ball Square Cafe's owner, Mike Moccia, about the win, we could hear the busy sound of clinking plates and utensils in the background. (We agreed to speak with Moccia later, when it wasn't so busy.)
As one reviewer on Yelp put it, "The food is great. The service is very good. It's a no frills type of spot, but it definitely hits the spot."
There was some stiff competition.
The Neighborhood Restaurant and Bakery in Union Square, another place that regularly has lines out the door, was a close runner up.
Congratulations to Ball Square Cafe for the win.
Next week, we're trying to find the best florist in Somerville. If you want to nominate a florist, send your nomination to firstname.lastname@example.org. This will allow us to be sure we don't leave anyone out.
