Ria’s Bluebird feels like a classic diner that was taken over by hippies. The staff is super friendly and is always one step ahead when you need a refill of anything, and regardless of whether you’ve gone paleo or vegan this week, there will be something on the menu for you. Grab a seat at the counter and get the slow-cooked brisket with poached eggs or tofu scramble, along with some buttermilk pancakes - which are the best in the city - to share. There’s a wait here seven days a week, but just walk around the corner to Revelator for a coffee in the meantime.
