According to the crowdsourced wisdom of Yelpers in the Boston area, there are a few clear answers to the hotly debated question “Where’s the best breakfast spot in Beantown?”

Now, if you’re not familiar with Yelp, the company/website is “is a multinational company that operates an online review site and local business search service,” according to Wikipedia. The reviews, of course, are submitted by users (Yelpers) and not any type of paid staff.

Here’s a look at where Boston breakfast eaters like to get their bacon and eggs.

Dash Cafe: 5 Henshaw St

While not technically in the city of Boston, Dash Cafe in Brighton is the most highly rated breakfast joint in the Boston area on Yelp. With an amenable patio, first class ingredients, and food at the right price, Dash Cafe delivers. Reviewers also rave about their breakfast burrito.

Billy’s Sub Shop: 57 Berkeley St

Breakfast at a sub shop? Strange as it may sound, Yelpers adore Billy’s, which opens its doors at 6 a.m. Monday through Friday. The french toast and blueberry pancakes get top marks, and reviewers rave about Billy’s friendly staff and great service.

Blunch (a combination of “breakfast” and “lunch”) is Yelp users’ fourth-favorite breakfast spot. Just have a look at these tremendous “eggwiches” (egg, plus…)
