Whether you're an early riser or more of a brunch person, Madison offers a wealth of great restaurants and cafes for getting breakfast.

But which is the best? We decided to find out as best we could.

First we looked up the reviews of each of the top-ranked breakfast restaurants on TripAdvisor, Yelp, Google and Facebook then calculated their average score out of five stars. The result is the list below.

Is the list perfect? No, certainly not. Did we miss your favorite spot? There's a decent chance of that. Crowdsourced star ratings are subjective by nature, and we couldn't include every breakfast spot in the city.

But we are reasonably sure that whether you prefer a simple breakfast of scrambled eggs and coffee or a gourmet spread of beautifully plated french cuisine, there's something on this list for you.

Bon appétit!
