Lane Cove Your Foodie Award Winners are…

ITC Foodie awards

Foodie Winners cover

Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote in In the Cove’s inaugural Foodie Awards.  We will be holding them again at the same time next year.  One thing that we learned from the Foodie Awards is that the name of a particular restaurant is not always known.  We had some hilarious descriptions (such as the place above the dress shop in the mall opposite Coles or Pottery Barn for Pottery Green).  Luckily the results were pretty clear so we did not have to rely on working out the exact name.

The Foodie Awards closed on 10 October 2015 (so some of Lane Cove’s new restaurants and cafes were not part of our survey).  We love walking down the plaza and seeing the bustling cafes.  The vibe in the Plaza has certainly changed over the last few weeks.

So drum roll please, the winners are….

foodie awards restaurantThe voting in this category was close.  The winner is Via Napoli Lane Cove.  The runners up were Dinner with the Cake Man and The Lodge.

 foodie awards bakeryThe winner is  The Cake Man.  The runners up were Bakers Delight Lane Cove, Pottery Green Bakers and One Seed Patisserie (it was a close call between the runners up).

foodie awards coffeeThe winner is Story.  However Pablo & Rusty’s Lane Cove were a close second.  Interestingly we asked you to nominate your favourite coffee shop in 2012 and the winner was Story (with Pablo & Rusty’s Lane Cove coming a close second).  You are consistent.

Three dishes from The Lodge were runners up:  The Breakfast bruschetta, the Zucchini Fries and the Gnocchi were all very popular.
