Breakfast Spot

“Another off the beaten path brunch spot, closes at 3 Ria's always has a line of people waiting to get in. It's clear at first glance how well loved and popular this diner is. It's small, eclectic, and cozy. And it's right across the street from the beautiful historic Oakland cemetery, which makes for a nice scenic walk if you're waiting on a table. I personally love the Vegetarian "chicken" fried teak with mashed potatoes. ”

American Restaurant

“The restaurant is an easy jump onto the Beltline, and has a very low key convivial vibe. Take the Beltline all the way up to Piedmont Park and pass by tons of electric scooter, bikers, walkers, dog park and skateboard park. Even may find a yoga session or musician playing near the Beltline.”
