About the Top 5 Best Breakfast/Brunch Spots in the 2022 Best of Oakland and the East Bay
Oakland Magazine’s Best of Oakland was born with the idea to give readers in Oakland and throughout the East Bay a chance to voice their opinions on their personal ‘Family Favorite’ choices for Best Breakfast/Brunch Spots and all kinds of everyday categories. The program has evolved over the years, and hopefully, with a lot of input from our readers, we’ve been able to make it better and better.
The voting for Best of Oakland Best Breakfast/Brunch Spots is conducted in a two-round process. The first round occurs in the month of February with open write-in nominations for reader’s favorite Best Breakfast/Brunch Spots taking place. Write-in nominations continue to be open until the middle of April.
As the nomination period for Best Breakfast/Brunch Spots in the first round comes to a close in mid April, shortly after, the second round opens with the top nominee Best Breakfast/Brunch Spots being selectable in this final round of voting during the month of April and May. Write-in nominations are no longer available, and voters are open to select their favorite Best Breakfast/Brunch Spots from among those that are listed.
The final winners are posted in July
We hope you enjoy! And we hope you cast your vote next year!
