THE time has finally come for you to decide where we can find The Perfect Breakfast.
Joining forces with Steve Power on Wave 105, we launched our search to celebrate The News being in shops from breakfast time every day.
Now the nominations are in and we have compiled our final bacon roll of honour, listing all the cafes, restaurants, hotels and takeaways that you think should have a shot at our title.
It is an impressive list, with 72 contenders that can be found in every corner of the area.
And we have received an incredible range of responses: from more upmarket establishments like the Sussex Brewery, in Emsworth, and Café Rouge, in Gunwharf Quays, to cheap-and-cheerful fare from cafes in Tesco North Harbour, and Morrisons in Gosport.
People have recommended their traditional favourites such as Southsea’s Tenth Hole Cafe, and even local fast-food outlets like McDonald’s.
There were also some more unexpected mentions, like for the Café Blue at Queen Alexandra Hospital, in Cosham.
But whatever your choice, simply select from our list, place your vote by post or text for The Perfect Breakfast, and if your favourite is chosen you could be enjoying breakfast at the winning venue with Steve Power!
