Came here for brunch this past weekend with a few friends. Although we came on the earlier end, there was a 20 minute wait in the hot, hot Atlanta weather. Despite this, the waitresses were happy to provide those of us waiting with free water and let some people go ahead and order iced coffee/orange juice while we waited. The... More

Had the Caramel Pancakes..... They were so good, some of the best Pancakes I ever had. I also had the brisket bowl with eggs. It was very good and the broth was great. This restarting is one of my favorites when I visit Atlanta.

The New York Times says Ria's has the world's best pancakes. They are right. I had the peach pancake special- the pancakes were light and fluffy with just the right amount of sweetness, and the fresh peaches were the perfect combination of crisp tartness and sweetness. The fresh whipped cream and hibiscus sugar topped them off for one of the... More

This is not your average brunch spot. Dishes are inventive, creative, and shut-your-mouth delicious. I had the pulled brisket with poached eggs-- perfectly poached eggs floating in a salty, savory broth. I ate the whole thing and then finished off the broth with a spoon. Pancakes are light, fluffy, and sensational- no chewiness or toughness here. I don't know if... More

My husband and I are not Vegans but we often strive to eat healthier meals when we dine out. Rias offers the choices we need plus they taste awesome.

My husband and I stopped by here on our way out of Atlanta. Wish we had went every morning! We showed up at the perfect time because they got busy fast. The salsa Verde in top of my burrito was the absolute best I have ever had. The peach chutney that was on the table was delicious as well. Can't... More

This is a must stop and be prepare to wait for a seat but you can get a coffee while you wait and you will not be disappointed. Caramelized banana pancakes is a must. This is a hole in the wall place and the food is amazing.

If you're looking for a casual saturday or sunday morning place to have breakfast or brunch, give this place a try! Definitely a "locals" place, the food makes up for the rather austere decor! Service is good and the servers themselves definitely add to the character of the place. Be sure to try the banana pancakes! They are on the... More
