Ria’s Bluebird

Since 2000, Ria Pell’s namesake restaurant has enjoyed a prime view of Historic Oakland Cemetery across from Memorial Drive. Inside, depictions of fat little bluebirds keep the place atwitter with positive energy under a cobalt blue ceiling.

Omelets with feta and spinach, tofu scramble with black beans, breakfast burritos, and skillet potatoes with rashers of good bacon are available until midafternoon. Unless you specifically want a sandwich or a salad (both appear at 11 a.m.), the breakfast-centric dishes are the clear popular choice.
