The team at Alowishus Delicious in Bundaberg hope to repeat their national success from 2018 in the Countrywide Cafe of the Year competition.
Voting begins on Monday, 8 April for the 2019 prize. Last year the $25,000 national award went to Alowishus.
They are among many local cafes who have registered this year to be in the running.
The others are Bargara Bakehouse, Oodies, Rosie Blue, Water Street Kitchen, Royal Coffee House, The Windmill, Café 1928 and Leaf & Bean.
There are many more who have registered with their local suppliers, North Coast Foods and Rum City Foods.
The competition runs for four weeks until 8 May and the draw will take place at 10am on 14 May to find out who wins the title.
The voting public can also win some great prizes thanks to Country Wide Foods, with five $500 Visa gift cards up for grabs.
If they win, year Alowishus Delicious have pledged to donate $10,000 to local charities.
Angels Community Group has been nominated by Alowishus customers to receive $5000, along with The Food Basket in Maryborough.
“Both of these organisations work distributing food hampers to those in need,” Alowishus owner Tracey McPhee said.
“We are very excited to be participating again this year, and are super excited about sharing our prize with these great local charities doing tireless work to help the needy in our community.”
