Let’s Celebrate the Best of Edina 2024

Best of Edina 2024

Meet the winners and finalists of our Readers’ Choice Poll.

I remember when I first moved to Edina. It was July, and part of the city’s welcome basket was a copy of Edina Magazine. That Best of Edina issue was integral to me. I learned about where to get my hair done, which OB-GYN may be ideal for me, which daycare could help me take care of my toddlers and which restaurant was perfect for a date night. I’m also an avid shopper. My favorite thing to do is tell people who compliment me on whatever I’m wearing, “Oh, I got this at ! You should totally get one, too!” The Best of Edina issue is what told me about local shops in our city.

Then, like you, I eagerly awaited to cast my own vote, which happens January 1–31 every year. I’d look forward to the announcement of finalists online in March, so I could make a note of them and visit each one. I’d even rank them on my own and compare them to how everyone else voted each July when the results were finally released. (Can you tell that I take the Best of Edina seriously?)

I adore the Best of Edina because I know how important it is to the residents and businesses in our city.

So without further ado, let’s celebrate our winners and finalists that represent businesses and service providers that are based in the community and/or serve the Edina area.

The results are listed in order of placement: first, second and third and, in some cases, a tie.—Feroza Mehta
