Our readers just spilled all of Hillsboro's secrets, and we couldn't be happier.


        So many choices, so little time!

Whether you're looking for a great place to eat sushi, Hillsboro's best bowling alley or the best place to take your family to cut down a Christmas tree, Hillsboro Tribune readers have got you covered.

Hillsboro's Best is a new section that focuses entirely on the businesses and people that make our community so special the bakeries, coffee shops, furniture stores and auto mechanics selected by our readers as the best Hillsboro has to offer. We hope you'll find some of your own favorites on this list and maybe find a new favorite or two.

Tummies must be rumbling, because our readers weren't shy about the best places to grab some grub. Clark's Bistro and Pub won gold honors for Best Appetizers, Best Burgers, Best Sandwich and Best Bar -- no wonder readers voted them Best New Restaurant for 2016. Best Donut goes to Every Day is a Donut Day, and if you need some coffee to go with that, our readers recommend Insomnia Coffee Company.

The Venetian Theatre & Bistro gets top honors in the category of Fine Dining, and if you're looking for dessert, take your sweet tooth to La Provence Boulangerie & Patisserie.

All that eating out is sure to pack on the pounds. You might need to visit Balance Massage & Core Fitness Studio, voted Best Fitness Center.

If you're shopping for the holidays, our readers recommend the Holiday Market at McMenamin's Cornelius Pass Roadhouse. And they're partial to Furrow Farm, voted Hillsboro's Best Christmas Tree Farm.

There are so many great places to shop, you'll want to try them all.
