Small and parking could be a problem but this is the ONLY negative. We all enjoyed our meal. Food is fresh and menu for lunch portions were perfect. Highly recommend and can't wait to go back.

Ria’s Bluebird is one of my favorite eateries in Atlanta offering some of the best breakfast in the city. Although small and quaint, it’s huge on personality – boasting a quirkily decorated outdoor area while the inside of the diner has an artful, living-room feel to it. The staff is just as colorful too, usually with tattoos and bubbling with... More

Popular with the East Atlanta crowd because of its wonderful food. The joint is renowned for its braised brisket, which my husband had for breakfast: came in a big bowl with lots of the tomato gravy (thin) around and with a couple of poached eggs. I had an omelet du jour: prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, pepperoni; served with the best grits... More

Visited on a Saturday about noon. About a 20 minute wait and they ask you to wait outside as they are TINY. Don't be offended, just do it, it's worth it. Their Valentines weekend specials were not your run of the mill breakfast faire. Nothing on the menu is ordinary. Be adventurous. House made sausage was scrumptious. Pancakes live up... More

I saw that there were great reviews of RIa's and decided it would be a great place to have breakfast after a morning jog along the nearby Beltline trail. I only carry my ID and a credit card when running, and do not carry an ATM card while running for security reasons. The line was very long when I arrived,... More

We visited this restaurant because of Recommendations as well as the reviews on Trip Advisor. The atmosphere is nice, the area is nice, tight parking in the front but it is side parking and street parking. The food was not that great though and the Waitress we had was very brusque, which made the things not that great. When the... More

We went because of their Trip Advisor ratings and their notoriety as having the Best Pancakes in America. But when we sat down we were impressed with eclectic menu. I had the pork shoulder Benedict. The pork was tender and tasteful. The pomegranate compote was amazing. My wife had the turkey melt and potato soup.... she said it was exceptional.... More

Our server at The Optimist enthusiastically recommended Ria's Bluebird. "Best pancakes in the world!" he said. We're not pancake people, necessarily, but I wanted to find out what the best pancakes in the world tasted like. It's great food made with love in a small facility, so, no surprise, it was extremely busy when we arrived at lunchtime on a... More
