From Jus Burgers in Leederville, who source all local produce and with their ‘no freezer allowed’ policy serve up the freshest gourmet burgers; to the highly sought after coffee award picked up by Villino Espresso in Hobart who source, roast and blend their own beans; and O‐Sushi in Byron Bay who toppled last year’s national winner off their thrown by taking out Australia’s Favourite Japanese.
