The Breakfast Bowl: What are the best breakfast/brunch spots in Tampa Bay?

We’ll narrow down the list, publish the brackets in issue of March 10th ( just before the NCAAs), then let the online voting begin. The Final Four will be judged in a taste-a-thon and reviewed by Brian Ries with the help of his Breakfast Club posse.

Leave your comments below and may the best breakfast win!

Four years ago, we began our March Madness-style restaurant battles with the PZZA Tournament of Slices. The following year, the best burger joints in Tampa Bay duked it out in the Tournament of Burgers. Tacos were the theme of the next bout, and last year, the Rib-Off allowed readers to pick the best barbecued ribs in the Bay.

For this year’s food tournament, we’re going to breakfast, and we need your help filling in the 64 spots in our Breakfast Bowl brackets.

What's your favorite place to grab breakfast or brunch? It could be a fine dining restaurant that happens to serve breakfast, a diner-type joint that only serves breakfast, a coffee shop, a hotel, or even food cart. Also, feel free to list the dish or dishes that you particularly like at your restaurant(s) of choice.
