It looks like this article replicates what you get in Yelp if you search for restaurants in Reading and sort by highest rated, but I don't understand Yelp's formula. Last Corner has 4 Yelp stars whereas Fuddruckers, Venetian Moon, Christopher's, and Oye's each only have 3.5 stars, yet they rank Last Corner 10th and the others higher. If Yelp were based on putting 3.5 stars and lots of reviews higher than 5 stars and only 6 reviews (like last corner), well then why did it choose Fuddruckers, Venetian Moon, Christophers & Oye's over other 3.5 star restaurants with lots of reviews, like Ristorante Pavarotti,Cafe Capri, Grumpy Doyle's, and Bertucci's.

I have been to Christopher's a couple of times for breakfast and found the food just OK and the service a little bit less than OK. Not sure how it makes a list like that.

I've always thought yelp was full of baloney. Can't believe they left out Pavarotti's...everything I've had there has been delicious. Love Christopher's breakfasts, too. De, your post surprised me...have you tried their omelets?

Nikki - totally agree with you about yelp being full of baloney. People will down grade anything for nutty reasons. At Christopher's I did have an omelet both times and both times was disappointed. I'm not super hard to please and I know that both times I might just have hit at a bad time. I'm not in a rush to go back but I would certainly give them another try :)
