Always worth the wait

We go often and always enjoy it. Try at least one order of pancakes! The eggs are always good as is the brisket.

'Twas a rainy Sunday morning and we were starving. We hoped the rain would keep everyone away from Ria's ... but we were wrong. That's how good their pancakes are! People will stand outside in the rain and wait for a table. My husband and I both got the caramelized banana short stack. Hubs finished his with no problem. I... More

Never in my life have I tasted anything as incredible as the banana pancakes that my boyfriend ordered... I made a terrible mistake of not getting them, but I will be back! We're already planning my next trip to ATL and Ria's Bluebird is on our to-do list!

We came here for brunch and got the pecan pancakes, which were excellent and also the rosemary chicken salad on a croissant,I will certainly come back again. The late wasn't long and the outdoor seating was beautiful and comfortable and cool from the heat.

I visited Ria's Bluebird while in Atlanta, Ga with friends and family and the food was out of this world. The only downside is they put everyone in your party on one check.

Great breakfast place- hip atmosphere. Pancakes were light and fluffy- they serve real VT maple syrup. Nice to have a taste of home while on the road.

Visit this place with an appetite! Portions are very generous and I have never cleaned my plate. This is a fun, eclectic restaurant where everyone is welcomed. The wait staff is very attentive and helpful. The menu offers a variety of interesting choices. There is a great selection for vegetarians. I enjoy breakfast and it is available all day. Be... More

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
