Eat Your Breakfast: Readers Choice Poll Asks For Your Favorite Breakfast Spots

Update: Monday, March 26 1:15 p.m.

Due to high demand, two candidates for Best Breakfast Spot have been added to the poll:

Votes for these options in the comments section will be added to the final tally.

Original story:

It's said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. If that's true, than where you choose to eat breakfast is one of the most importance decisions you can make in your day, right?

With that in mind, this week's Readers’ Choice poll highlights the best breakfast spots near La Mesa-Mount Helix. We need your votes to help us figure out which nearby eatery is your favorite place to help start your day.

Here are some of our favorite places, but if we’re leaving one off of the list that’s in the area, let us know in the comments and we’ll add it.

Voting closes at 9 a.m. Friday. Ties will be broken by whichever course has the most positive comments in the section below. We will announce the winner at noon Friday.

So tell us what your favorite place is to spend a time throwing down breakfast. And don't forget to tell us in the comments below why.

Because this poll is not scientific, it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. The winner will be determined by the Patch editor, based on poll results and reviews on Patch Places. Please vote only once per survey, per Patch.

THE LUNCH BOX ! OMG ! It was everything and more than what I ever expected it to be. I pull right up front at about 10:15AM..I see the beautiful sign in front "Breakfast $3.95" ..No waiting, I am so there... I do a walk through, get acclimated . I order 2 eggs sunny side up, potato's, toast. the place is spotless clean, dark hardwood floors and decor reminds me of a modern Grammas house. The food and portions were perfect. There was even a copy of the LA Times there that an early bird customer leaves off pretty regularly. I have found a new home ! I encourage everyone to try this breakfast. How can it get any better ? I am voting for "The Lunch Box" !

Hey Dexter, Do you think the photo is from Shirleys ? I remember when it was a Vietnamese restaurant in the early '80's and IT was pretty good. I will be re-visiting Shirleys soon, have not been there in a while. It was always pretty good except some parking issues during peak feeding time,

Definitely The Lunch Box! I stop there on a regular basis and when I am out of town I compare everyone to them. Few measure up. Wonder what their breakfast specials will be today?!

Antique row or is that considered lemon grove? Otherwise I'd say Marios
