Vote now: Nominate your favourite weekend brunch spot now

There’s no denying it: people go bonkers for brunch. In this town, those serving up the finest brunch fare are rewarded with lengthy queues come the weekend, and unwavering loyalty from their regulars. It’s a meal we know many people feel strongly about, and so we are giving you the opportunity to vote for the eatery that you think does it the best — if there’s anyone you think we’ve overlooked, be sure to add them in the comment box.

Everybody who votes goes in the draw to win one of three $1000 vouchers to be spent at one of the American Express Local Dining Collection locations — a list of which can be found here.

Voting has now closed. The 2022 Denizen Hospo Heroes presented by American Express will be announced in the Winter issue of Denizen magazine (released on 23rd May, 2022).
