Nominations being accepted for ‘Bama’s Best Breakfast Joint’
Alabama is well known for its Southern hospitality and cooking, and now one contest will attempt to crown the best of the best when it comes to the Yellowhammer State’s breakfast joints.
“Breakfast — It’s the most important meal of the day, and ‘Simply Southern TV’ wants to know which local restaurant butters your biscuit by serving up the state’s best breakfast,” a release from the Alabama Farmers Federation announced.
From coffee shops, downtown diners or donut dives, Alabamians can now nominate their favorite local breakfast spot in the Bama’s Best Breakfast Contest.
To make a nomination, simply comment on the Facebook post here. Comments must include the respective establishment’s name and city.
Please note that Bama’s Best Breakfast seeks to promote Alabama-based restaurants, so national chains will not be eligible. However, specific locations of Alabama-based chains will be eligible to compete.
Nominations close November 29 at 1:00 p.m. The top eight nominees will be ranked in a bracket and then compete in daily head-to-head matchups from December 10-20.
The winner, which will be announced December 20, will receive a $300 cash prize and a commemorative plaque, along with being featured in the fifth season of “Simply Southern TV.”
This contest is sponsored by the Alabama Wheat & Feed Grain Producers, a division of the Alabama Farmers Federation. “Simply Southern TV” is a production of the Alabama Farmers Federation and the Alabama Farmers Cooperative. It airs on Sunday mornings in each media market across the state.
UPDATE, Tuesday, Nov. 27: Only two days remain to nominate your favorite local breakfast spot.
“A lot of restaurants in the state have received one or two nominations, and a handful have pulled away from the rest of the group. But, we’re still looking for a few restaurants to round out the Top 8,” “Simply Southern TV’s” Mary Johns said in an email.
She added, “To ensure your favorite makes it into Bama’s Best Breakfast bracket, comment on the Facebook post for Bama’s Best Breakfast with the restaurant name and city.”
