This location is a convenient breakfast / early lunch stop as I was here on a conference trip and was staying in the Sheraton nearby. The food was hit and miss - bananas foster french toast was to die for, cuban breakfast was great, catfish with grit cakes were amazing. An egg/pulled pork dish (can't remember the name!) was nearly... More

We were recommended this place by a local and waited 40 minutes for a seat but it was worth it! I had the eggs benedict on a big hearty biscuit and my husband had a breakfast sandwich that included their famous candied bacon (which includes cinnamon). The service was fast, the atmosphere was fun and we would recommend to others!... More

I staied at the Pelham hotel, right next door, so I ate there 3 mornings. I think because I got there early enough we didnt have a wait. The food was awesome. One morning we had to get to a tour and were crunched for time. They were very god about being aware of our time.

Definitely a different spin on breakfast. Lots of original dishes. Staff is friendly and the prices are not bad for a tourist spot.

I've been to New Orleans many times, but somehow missed the Ruby Slipper until this most recent trip. Well, I'm glad I made it! It's got a great breakfast/brunch menu, and manages to have the same quality of food that New Orleans is known for, while spicing it up with a few unusual dishes. The Costa Rican breakfast was awesome!... More
