Congratulations Dream Cafe. You had a strong first place finish. I look forward to stopping by once things are up and running. Kudos to the other area restaurants receiving the love from their fans - Sunrise Restaurant, Berna B's, Village Inn, and Randy's Southside Diner in Orchard Mesa. There were several other area venues getting the love, but they didn't make the top 5. I'm sure they are all excellent.
Thank you to all who voted. Your opinions come in very handy.
