There’s nothing British people love better than the smell of frying bacon and sizzling sausages. Now we want you to tell us which cafe gets it right and why it should be named the best in the Ilkeston area.
It could be the delicious, crispy bacon or the perfect fried egg with runny yolk. Or maybe it’s the quality of the pork sausages that come from recognised local farms and the way they sizzle on the frying pan.
Maybe you love the friendly staff who welcome you at any time and provide you with that winning pancake breakfast or filling cheese and ham toastie for lunch.
The extras on the menu – like the thick milkshakes, the hot desserts, the jacket potato or the omelette – could also be superb.
To nominate a café, just fill out the form featured in the Advertiser, which is out now. Alternatively you can nominate by text (SEE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW).
Nominated cafés will go through to the voting round - we’ll publish these on Thursday August 7.
Once voting has closed and the votes counted, we’ll announce who the lucky café is and present them with a trophy.
Editor Martin Hutton said: ‘Everyone has their favourite cafe where they like to recommend others to go, and we’d love to hear suggestions from around this area.
“Whether it’s the full English breakfasts, the chips, the service or the location – if you’re a fan of fry-ups on a Sunday morning, for example – then get in touch.’
Nominations need to be submitted by 10am on Monday, July 28, 2014. Nominated cafes have to have a seated area for diners.
They must be open during breakfast and lunchtime.
