The smaller the group the better chance you have of a short wait. When we went, it was hubby and I, so our wait was about 20 minutes.
I ordered the special: almond crusted French toast stuffed with cream cheese sweetened with local honey served with warm maple syrup on the side. This was the best French toast I have ever eaten. Everything about this plate equaled perfection. To drink, I ordered fresh squeezed orange juice. You cannot beat fresh squeezed OJ.
Words that come to mind to describe this restaurant: eclectic, artsy, trendy
The décor has a retro vibe to it. The wait staff is friendly but no nonsense. They make some small talk, but keep it moving because they have a lot of tables to serve and a lot of orders to get to hungry people.
Hipsters were crowding the parking lot waiting for tables in the packed restaurant. Sometimes a restaurant becomes a trendy place to eat but the food is mediocre at best. In the case of Ria’s Bluebird, the food lives up to the hype. I can see why they were featured on TV and are known for have the best breakfast in ATL.
