Lives up to the Hyepe!

I’ve wanted to go to Ria’s for a while but the fear of crowds always kept me away. We decided to give it a try Sunday morning. It was raining so we were hoping it would keep some folks away. Ria’s has a small parking lot right in front of it but you can park on the side street. I... read more

Brunch made us happy campers at Ria's Bluebird in Hotlanta. My brisket in broth was sublime. The sandwiches and salads the others had were simply outstanding. The place is funky but not the food. I shall be back.

So we were driving through Atlanta on our way from Chicago to Savannah and had a little time to catch Sunday Brunch (which we heard was the BEST in Atlanta)! We had no clue where to go, so we mapped the brunch spots we would pass and then leaned on Trip Advisor and Yelp to help us out! The first... More

All your dreams of an old style diner come true. Yes you might have to wait (we didn't) but it will be worth it. Best breakfast.

This small restaurant was recommended by Malika Harricharan when we searched the internet. Her article also brought us to several other restaurants. This restaurant is located near a big cemetery where we can see the tombstones while having breakfast. Limited parking space could be a problem when the restaurant is busy. We had the banana pancakes and Early Bird Special... More

APPARENTLY Atlantans have no qualms whatsoever with waiting over an hour to be seated for Sunday Brunch at their favorite spots, and our hosts were no exception. But it's basically breakfast right? What can go wrong? When we balked at the 45 minute stated wait at the first place our hosts tried, they brought us here, and cleverly didn't inquire... More

We arrived on Saturday, about noon and waited about twenty minutes for our table for four. Great service, very prompt! I had the pancakes with caramelized bananas and pecans. The were excellent! Others in my family had the egg nog pancake special, said they were excellent. The girls were good, not excellent, a bit too much pepper for my liking.... More

I love their pancakes. This is one of my five year olds favorite places. Their coffee is good and services is swift. Their specials are always awesome, so be sure to listen! Prices are definitely good! The only negative is the wait time, but it's the price to pay for good food!

Perfect pancakes, eggs, potatoes and sausage patties. (I will forgive them for the biscuits that were dry and hard.) There was a wait but this is one breakfast that was worth making us late for leaving town. I can see why this place is so popular.

Went here for the first time recently and it was one of the most tasty breakfasts I have ever had! You HAVE to try the pancakes - the best I've ever had. We sat "outside" in the patio, which was a really cool atmosphere. Our waitress was great too. Apparently this restaurant was here before this area was cool, which... More
