Introducing the BEATS Awards finalists in 2014 Best Cafe or Restaurant

Posted in finalistsnews

The Cafe and Restaurant businesses  provide important gathering places for our community in addition to providing great food and coffees.  This year we had five entries with a mixture of small and large business and award winning restaurants and cafes. The common theme of all these entries was the excellent standard of their food.  The entries were all very good. The judges for  this category had to go through four levels of judging.
