Vesta Coffee Roasters Is one of your resolutions to begin using a metal straw? Vesta offers those, along with first-class house-roasted java and inspired breakfast sandwiches. If you get stuck for inspiration, take a walk through the adjacent alleys, which are covered in great street art. 1114 S Casino Center Blvd. #1, 702- 685-1777.

Sambalatte This bean-to-cup local chain recently upped their game in two significant ways: They developed the capacity for rainbow-colored latte art, and they opened a location inside the Smith Center that not too many folks know about yet. Plot your 2019 there, in full color. Multiple locations, sambalatte.com.

Grouchy John’s Making New Year’s resolutions is a marathon, not a sprint. You might need one of Grouchy John’s sweet and potent frappes to power you through. You can lose weight soon; today, get an Almond Roca mocha frappe and just enjoy the moment. Multiple locations, grouchyjohns.com.

Gäbi Coffee & Bakery Here’s a chance to knock one resolution off your list pre-emptively: The second you lay eyes on this super-chill, Korean-flavored coffeehouse, with its indoor/outdoor vibe and tasty tea lattes, you’ll say, “I need to come here more often.” One down! 5808 Spring Mountain Road #104, 702-331-1144.

Public Works Coffee Bar If you’d like to write out your resolutions with a diminished chance of outside distraction, try this coffee, beer and wine bar at the south end of Water Street. It’s far enough off the beaten path, and such a pleasurable place to hang out in, that everyone who finds it keeps it to themselves. 314 S Water Street #110, Henderson, 725-223-3900.
