Patch readers debated the top breakfast spots last week.
The verdict is in: Harford County has some awesome spots for breakfast. Aberdeen's Bob Evans, Havre de Grace's Vancherie's Cafe and Bel Air's Bagel Works claimed the Patch Readers' Choice nominations in their communities. (When we launched the feature, it was called "Best Of." But we've since changed the name.) In Aberdeen, Bob Evans edged Panera Bread and Golden Corral.

I'm going to need a workout after thinking about all this breakfast. But while we're here, why not have some fun and see which of the three winners you prefer: Bel Air's bagels, Aberdeen…
