Luiz Oliveira, a native of Brazil, grinds and brews coffee to order, using 100 percent Arabica beans from Rio Verde in Brazil, or those from exotic locales such as Guatemala, Sumatra and Ethiopia.

Sit in the lounge here and you get to drink the results in a porcelain mug. Beans are roasted locally by Colorado River Coffee Roasters. The Flat White cappuccino with extra milk has a perfect swirl of foam and amazing balance.

Gyoza, Monta

This bustling noodle shop’s gyoza, or hand-made dumplings, take a little extra time, so when you order, the waitress will immediately shout over your shoulder to the kitchen that you’d like some. The gyoza are made in-house daily with pork and vegetables, then pan-fried for a nice crust on the outside. Make your own dipping sauce from the accoutrements in front of you: soy sauce, a little vinegar and a little chili oil or shichimi seven spice. $5, 5030 Spring Mountain Road, Suite 6, 367-4600.
