Word of mouth- No competition!! This morning I had the best ever Eggs Benedict for $4. The only downside is way too small- I wish they would put one out South!

Word of Mouth for best all around and Willamette Burger Co. for best new restaurant. Keep up the good work guys!

Le Capitale gets my vote for something different Salem needed. Great appetizers and bar area for Happy Hour small get together, and fairly affordable upscale meals in a downtown space.

Word of Mouth is a good runner up. Salem loves a breakfast spot.

My vote goes to Word of Mouth Bistro. Having dined there on many occasions I can say that the food is consistently excellent and the service is flawlessly superb. It is a fine addition to Salem's dining scene.

Word of Mouth #1 - Why? Just a really good place overall. Food and atmosphere. I've only been there for breakfast.

La Capitale #2 - Why? I either love or hate the food there, but I do appreciate the whole package.

Christo #3 - Why? Been going there for years, but I love the new location. When I am in the wine/gourmet pie mood. They now have better hours and my wife loves a nice glass of wine.

SFNY Pizza #4 - Why? I have been going there for 20 some years and in the past they were only open 12-5 weekdays only. Trying to get a slice wasn't easy. Now they are open seven days a week at three different shops. This is a big deal for a new yorker stuck on the west coast, that loves his slices.

I vote for La Capitale. Great food at affordable prices.

Christos, St From NY Pizza, and believe it or not, Wallery's. Walery's is a guilty pleasure and what a great place to meet after soccer practice. The kids love it and I always am happy.

Obviously, I am a pizza kind of guy.
