Bagel: The Posh Bagel

Mountain View residents prefer their bagels steamed, not boiled, thank you very much, which is exactly how the Posh Bagel prepares them. This method of cooking makes the bagels softer and less chewy. These bagels come plain, covered in a schmear, piled with toppings or as a sandwich.

444 Castro St., Mon.-Fri., 6:30 a.m.-6 p.m.; Sat., 7:30 a.m.-5 p.m., Sun., 8 a.m.-3 p.m.; 968-5308

Bar: Tied House Café and Brewery

There's no question where your beer came from at the Tied House. When you're seated at the bar of the brewery you can see where the beer came from just a few days before. In England during the 18th and 19th centuries, beer brewers began opening pubs that sold only beers made by the parent brewery called tied houses, as opposed to free houses that sold beer from different breweries. The Tied House follows this tradition and serves its own American-style brews like Alpine Gold, New World Wheat and Cascade Amber. For non-beer drinkers there are also cosmos and kamikazes made with sake and margaritas made with agave wine.

BBQ: Austin's

Nothing is more American than barbecue, and when Mountain View residents are craving some, they head on over to Austin's. Owner Richard Clark takes pride in serving authentic Texan-style food and routinely makes a pilgrimage back to Texas to ensure that he's preparing his baby-back ribs the same way they do in the Lone Star State.

1616 W. El Camino Real, Mon.-Thurs., 11:30 a.m.-9:30 p.m.; Fri., 11:30 a.m.-10 p.m.; Sat., 9 a.m.-10 p.m.; Sun., 9 a.m.-9 p.m.; 969-9191

A perennial winner in the breakfast category, Hobee's is the place that locals flock to for the best breakfast food around.

Chinese Restaurant: Café Yulong

Not all Chinese restaurants are equal, which is why our readers have voted Café Yulong as the best place to find great Chinese food. The husband and wife team of James and Miya Pei came to the states 30 years ago from the Shandong province in Northern China. They specialize in cuisine from Northern China and serve up crowd pleasers like dumplings and fresh homemade noodles. Popular main dishes are the spicy lemon pepper prawns and the Ghan Shao lamb. The reasonable prices and inviting, relaxed atmosphere are what voters say make this the best Chinese restaurant.

Coffee House (independent): Red Rock Coffee Company

A family feel and quality service are what have kept coffee drinkers turning to Red Rock for their daily cup-a-joe. "We try to keep it like one big family here. I don't have customers, I have potential friends," said Sunrise Cobb, an employee. In addition to offering great coffee, Red Rock also offers fresh-roasted coffee, espresso drinks, tea, bagels, cakes and pastries. Friday and Saturday are the nights to catch live music, and open-mike night on Monday allows amateurs to try their hand at performing.

Fast Food Restaurant: In-N-Out Burgers

In the world of fast food, most restaurants sacrifice quality for speed. Not true at In-N-Out Burger, where the burgers are grilled when they're ordered, the lettuce, tomatoes and onions are fresh and the fries are made from potatoes on the premises. The simple menu offers only a hamburger, a cheeseburger and a double cheeseburger, but In-N-Out connoisseurs know how to order from a secret menu using code words for burgers like Animal Style and Protein Style.

Fine Dining: Chez TJ Restaurant

Fine dining is no longer a thing of the past. You will feel as if you stepped back in time when you walk through the doors of the 100-year-old Victorian house on Villa Street.

Fresh herbs are grown in the garden out back, fish is flown in from Japan, and fresh organic produce is used to ensure the food is of the highest quality.

Variety enlivens life, and when looking for a meal that's a little out of the ordinary, Zucca is a great choice. The European-style bistro, with an emphasis on cuisine from Greece, Turkey, Italy, France and Spain, is the only one of its kind in Mountain View. Some of the more popular dishes are lamb shank; Turkish Kofte, which is beef and lamb meatballs served with a yogurt garlic sauce; Tuscan-style tomato soup; and roasted rabbit with mushrooms and risotto. The outdoor seating is the perfect place for lunch and the bar serves up some of the best martinis around.

New Restaurant: Shiva's Indian Restaurant & Bar

It's hard being the new guy in town, but the warm, inviting atmosphere of Shiva's has won over the residents of Mountain View. The restaurant specializes in classic North Indian cuisine with a contemporary twist. "The dishes are very flavorful, but we also have mild curries for those who don't like spicy curries," said Niru Srizastiva, the manager. The $10.95 lunch buffet is the ideal way to get acquainted with the restaurant and the food.

800 California St., Sun.-Thurs., 5 p.m.-9 p.m.; Fri.-Sat., 5 p.m.-10 p.m.; 960-3802

Choose from a plethora of noodle dishes and soups with shrimp, chicken, pork, beef or vegetarian options and wash it all down with a pearl milk tea.

520 Showers Drive, daily, 9 a.m.-9 p.m.; 947-8888

Pearl Tea: Verde Tea Espresso Bar

The growing popularity of pearl tea (also known as bubble tea or tapioca tea) has resulted in teahouses opening everywhere, but according to the voters, Verde Tea Espresso Bar is the best place serving this treat. It is the perfect place to suck up pearl tea, accompanied by the flavored milk of your choice. Two popular options are the almond and rose-flavored teas.

Pizza: Amici's East Coast Pizzeria

At times it's hard for West Coasters to admit that the East Coast does a few things better, but when it comes to their pies, our voters had no problem listing Amici's East Coast Pizzeria at the top of the list. Fans appreciate the thin-crust pizzas toasted to perfection in a traditional brick oven. With 30 toppings ranging from classic pepperoni and sausage to fried eggplant, sun-dried tomatoes and artichoke hearts, there is something to please everyone.

Place to Buy Fresh Produce: Mountain View Farmers' Market

Mountain View residents know where to turn for fresh produce, and that's their local farmers' market. Unlike supermarkets, there are up to 70 vendors selling a wide range of items, including fresh produce, fish, and baked goods that taste as though they've just been plucked from the vine, water or oven, respectively. A trip to the farmers' market on Sunday is a reminder that you can still get fresh produce, even in the middle of Silicon Valley.

Parking plaza on Hope Street between Villa and Evelyn, Sun. 9 a.m.-1 p.m.; (800) 806-FARM

Place for Business Lunch: Cascal

The upbeat atmosphere, convenient location and quality food are what make Cascal the ideal setting for a business lunch.

There is nothing difficult about this fish; in fact it's where our voters go for the best seafood around. The upbeat atmosphere at the Cantankerous Fish is perfect for dinner or lunch.

Small (non-chain) Grocery Store: The Milk Pail Market

As its name implies, the Milk Pail Market started as a dairy in the early 1970s and has grown into what it is today. Shoppers can scout the aisles of hard-to-find cheeses, dairy staples such as butter and milk, fresh produce, fresh bread and bulk grains.
