Fantastic Food, Atmosphere and Staff!!! – A few years ago I was told about Radial from a couple of friends of mine who live in Inman Park. And, boy am I glad they did!
The food is fresh, fast and fantastic. I especially LOVE the Veggie Gravy - the best gravy I have ever tasted. The weekend specials usually include some kind of unique grits dish and fruity waffle/pancake dsh. Sometimes my friends and I will splurge and split a 'special' waffle/pancake along with our own individual breakfasts. Also, I love the fact Radial has turkey bacon and veggie sausage along with the usual sides.
The restaurant is large and open, so my fiends and I usually don't have to wait very long to be seated.
The servers are very friendly and quick.
I have been going to Radial for several years now. I have never had a bad experience. Luckily, I live in Decatur and I make it to Radial every weekend.
Overpriced food of poor quality – I went with my gf because we live in the area and had not tried out Radial yet.
At first glance the prices looked reasonable, but on further inspection no sides are included.
I ordered a mocha for 3.75 and it came in a small mug that had walls half an inch thick. I would say it was about half the size of the smallest drink at your local coffee house.
I also ordered the "special" of the day. As in special for Radial to bump up their profit margin. I ordered the Cinnamon Apple french toast. I saw on the menu the emphasis on local organic ingredients. I suppose the apples were local and organic, but they were diced so small I could barely taste anything. The french toast just tasted like bread. There wasn't any thing besides the appearance that made me think other wise.
My girlfriend bought the hash that was unremarkable, but it came with a decent amount of toast so I was able to leave with my hunger somewhat satisfied.
I will never be returning to Radial and I am surprised anyone does eat there. Organic food doesn't have to mean bland and overpriced, though I do understand it costs more.
Anyways this is just my two cents...nevermind that is gone also as the people at Radial tack a surcharge on your bill that 'can be removed' if you dont feel like paying it.
Do yourself a favor and drive a few miles to one of the other breakfast establishments in the area. I have been to nearly all of them and they are all much better.
Note - I wasn't able to publish this with Zero stars.
I'm sincerely sorry you didn't enjoy your experience with us. I wish we had known while you were in the restaurant so that we could have addressed your concerns. We always encourage our guests to let us know when something isn't up to their expectations so that we can take better care of them.. constructive criticsm is not only welcomed, but encouraged.
Our coffee drinks are served in classic diner mugs... the slightly thicker walls help keep coffee hot. We would've been happy to make you a 'tall' mocha in a glass. The french toast was priced the same as our regular french toast & did contain organic apples. We batter all of our french toast with eggs, brown sugar & vanilla. We would have been happy to re-cook it for you. The 2 cent surcharge is entirely optional as it says on your check. It's there to help cover our certification fee with the Green Restaurant Association. It's also a good way to start conversations about what the restaurant is doing to be more eco-friendly.
Awesome Breakfast and Brunch in Atlanta! – Radial is a great place to go to for breakfast, brunch or lunch. They serve breakfast all day, which I love! The pancakes are amazing! We also tried the hummus sandwhich and turkey burger, which was really good too. It has a casual atmosphere and a huge space, so it never feels too crowded, like many breakfast restaurants around town.
Love the Lit'l 5 & Candler Pk Vibe – I like the specials and the quality of the food. I have never had a bad meal and it is always relaxed, never up tight.
An excellent place to really talk with someone and enjoy an intown crowd.
Oh yeah! – Best breakfast in town! Hands down! And free birthday breakfast... That's what's up!
Perfect for breakfast meetings – It's a great location, easy to park and quiet enough to have a good breakfast meeting

Sunday Brunch Winner – Radial is the kind of place that exudes a vibration with which we resonate, aesthetically, gastronomically and earth-lovingly. Great food + strong green emphasis = can't go wrong / worthy of myour support.
Great coffee & yummy food! – Radial has NEVER disappointed this self-declared brunch critic. A solid menu with daily specials features choices for everyone and all options are so affordable! To boot, the restaurant is a member of the Green Restaurant Association and complies with the environmentally-conscious standards of the organization. Bottom line: check it out, you'll be hooked, 'nuff said.
