Vote for your favorite restaurants in the Gazette Readers' Choice Awards

It's that time again -- the Kalamazoo Gazette is holding their annual Readers' Choice Awards. This competition invites all readers to give their two cents about which businesses really stand out in the Kalamazoo area. Voting began this past Sunday, September 12th and goes through 5 p.m. on on Friday, September 24th.

This year's awards include five main categories: Arts & Entertainment, Services, Sports & Leisure, Shopping and Dining. Within those categories are over 70 total subcategories. For example, under Dining you'll be able to vote for your favorite pizza place, Italian restaurant, coffee shop, the best wine list and lunch spot, among other things.

Commonly, many subcategories feature local restaurants as the top winners, though some chain restaurants make it onto the list as well. For each category, the first, second and third place winners are featured along with some honorable mentions. Last year, several locales won multiple awards, including the Air Zoo, Food Dance Cafe, Webster’s Prime Steakhouse, Bravo! Restaurant & Cafe and Bell’s Brewery.

There's still plenty of time to get your votes counted. Head to to place your votes today!
