Best Breakfast Spot

Best Breakfast Spot was a coveted title in this year’s poll, with the question garnering more votes than almost any other. Taking the bacon for the fourth straight year is The Nucleus (405 Water St., Eau Claire) with its array of morning meals both savory (the “El Presidente” hashbrown scrambler) and sweet (strawberry Nutella crepes). Following in second and third places are longtime favorites Altoona Family Restaurant (2000 N. Hillcrest Parkway, Altoona) and Randy’s Family Restaurant (1132 W MacArthur Ave., Eau Claire). — Emilee Wentland
