That last round was a close one!
But the winner of the head-to-head showdown and moving on to the finals against Bonobo's is the Organic Garden Cafe. Both will compete in another head-to-head Local Flavour vote off for the (very unofficial) title of Thunder Bay's Favourite Veggie Burger.
Before I talk about the finals, applause are in order for the Sovereign Room. The establishment can put together a great veggie burger. And the eatery was even able to hold its own against a couple of local spots that don't just offer the meatless treat, but actually serve it up as a specialty.
The Sovereign Room has a solid menu from top to bottom and if you haven't tried them out yet you should do yourself a favour and grab a table ASAP.
As for how the last round of voting unfolded -- the Organic Cafe took a commanding lead at the beginning. In the first couple days it looked as if it would be lopsided victory. But the Sov fans came out later in the week and didn't stop sending in their votes until the very last moments. I even started to nervously wonder how I would manage a tie.
After adding up the email votes, comments below and the not-too-many Twitter votes, the final score was a close 57 to 55 for the Organic Cafe.
So now we move onto the finals. But the finals don't start just yet. I hope to offer a little more information on the finalists before I start a vote, so I will tentatively schedule this final round of voting for the second week of December (Monday, Dec. 10 to Sunday, Dec. 16).
This will give everyone a chance to check out both locations and make an informed decession.
So until then, are you team Bonobo's, team Organic Cafe or still an undecided voter?
