1. The buttermilk pancakes at nationally recognized brunch spot Ria’s Bluebird.
“So, on behalf of those who actually live in downtown, I must recommend Ria’s Bluebird’s buttermilk pancakes. They’re ranked best pancakes in the world by the New York Times and only $7. Bonus: The location is right in heart of downtown and across from the historical Oakland Cemetery.”
