The votes are in, and the winners have been selected for OnMilwaukee's Best Dining 2009. The results of this readers' poll, including an editors' pick, are available in this series of articles that run all October long during Dining Month on

Despite the fact that we gave readers more choices than ever in this year's list for best brunch (nearly 30), Trocadero again walked away with the win. And that's considering that 200 votes alone were cast for "other," and Troc beat runner up Comet Café by a full two percentage points.

In other words, Trocadero, 1758 N. Water St., must be doing something right.

With a year-round patio and a delicious weekend brunch that is served from 9 a.m., the French theme carries over to that wonderful meal between breakfast and lunch.

Their menu contains specialties like crepes and quiches, but there are also sandwiches, nearly a dozen egg-fueled dishes, along with fruit plates, waffles, French toast and more.

And don't forget Trocadero's extensive Bloody Mary selection, either.

If it's warm enough, enjoy brunch near the fountain on the patio. If not, Troc is lovely inside, too. editors' choice: Pandl's in Bayside
