a visit to Atlanta demands a short stack of Ria's pancakes with caramelized bananas. the place is tiny and across from Oakland Cemetary( ok, no ghosts). Staff are really friendly but even if they were awful- the pancakes are so amazing. Light with a slight crisp outer feel and the caramelized bananas are magical. You might be able to eat... More

This food is crazy good!!! I love this place. The mere factor that most items on the menu are healthy for you, this place is a go to. Those carmelized bananas are ridiculous! They really need to do a better job with sitting the guests because the wait can be a horrible take back.

We were referred to this place for breakfast and it didn't disappoint. The pancakes I had were tasty and my wife's special of brisket and poached eggs was also very good. A little difficult to find but worth the effort.

If you want a breakfast experience off the beaten path, this is your pick. Ria's has an organic variation on breakfast and lunch food. Beef Brisket is EXCELLENT! It has a very earthy crunch feel and is laid back. Excellent option if you want an experience other than the traditional breakfast cafe/diner.

We came to check out this place because it is rated by several reviews as THE best place in Atlanta for breakfast, and there are some might fine breakfast places in our city. We also came because the web site promoted some scrumptious sounding specials, which we will never taste because 1. They didn't have them 2. "We don't start... More

Excellent service at Ria's and a fun indoor/outdoor seating space option that was still cool even though the temperatures were in the 90s with high humidity. Tasty breakfast-- the pancakes were good, as were the grits.

Hit this place after reading reviews. Let me tell you it is awesome! Ordered the Daily Special Omelet, Pancakes with caramelized bananas and my lady got the breakfast burrito. It was decadent! Will definitely return again. My favorite part was them playing Radioheads greatest hits!

How do I write this review when I never tried the food. Oh, perhaps to address the lack of service- that the "hostess" and the staff are the most juvenile, unprofessional group I've encountered. Going on a recommendation I stopped in to grab breakfast before the flight back to DC. The hostess began by "put your name down", not good... More

Well the other reviews were true... There is a monster wait. But it is worth it. The neighborhood is cute so we walked to the weekend farmers market at grant park and checked out he local digs while we waited 1.5 hours for a seat on Sunday mid-morning. But once seated our waiter was great and the food was "the... More

We visited Ria's and were extremely pleased!! The service was good. The atmosphere is unique. The food was awesome! I'd highly recommend the banana pecan pancakes!
