Well, that was conclusive.
By a 110-vote margin, Southwest Minneapolis Patch readers have voted Butter Bakery Cafe as the Best Coffee Shop in Southwest Minneapolis. Ever since Butter Bakery surged ahead of its rivals in our poll on Monday, their lead became unassailable.
"LOVE this place like no other! Best biscuit and best chai in the entire Twin Cities metro area," reader Milli wrote on Butter's Patch Directory listing.
"This place is a gem," reader Sarah Crabtree concurred.
Other neighborhood favorites saw spirrited support, though, even if they couldn't muster the votes to beat Butter. Like the Ron Paul of coffee shops, newcommer Adagio Cafe only polled 40 votes, but saw praise like Zev Larcoran's lavished on them.
"GO ADAGIO! They offer great live music in a calm and cool atmosphere," he wrote.
