Sometimes, it feels virtually impossible to get good advice. You want a burrito, but where can you find the best one? Are those Yelp reviews real or fake? Is it really that color, or is that just an Instagram filter?
And so we offer you the sage advice of your fellow readers, who have taken the time to identify the best that Mountain View has to offer, from restaurants and takeout joints to shoe repair shops and chiropractors. Because sometimes, you just want to get out the house and enjoy a good meal at a restaurant that has a charming patio or indulge in way too many bar snacks at a boisterous beer garden. Unplug and unwind at a yoga class, engage in a little tangible retail therapy in a local boutique or find exactly the right tool for that household project. Your fellow readers are here for you, ready to point you to the perfect place.
The Best of Mountain View winners are determined by tabulating our online ballots, so if you think this year's list is missing one of our city's finest, be sure to cast your vote in next year's contest and make your voice heard.
