If you are only going to have breakfast or "brunch' then this is the place for you. They open at 7am Monday through Friday and 8 am on Saturday. I'm telling you that because the line starts forming a half hour before they open. The service is great and they have food for every taste. I had the Bananas Foster... More

I ordered the Bananas Foster Pain Perdu,which by the way was the best breakfast plate i have ever had in my life. Needless to... More

If you want the real thing, this southern breakfast spot is reasonable and won't disappoint. We were fortunate as we arrived just before 8:00 thinking they were open early but actually not until 8:00. We were not the first ones in but did get a good table. Soon after that the wait line was out the door. The biscuits, bacon,... More

Known for the breakfast menu, the line is long. But well worth the wait. Great tasting food and good service all combined with a very reasonable price - can't beat this deal.

I used the restaurant because it was attached to the Pelham Hotel where I was staying and although not the cheapest place for breakfast the service and quality of the cooking made it worth it. I had the smoked salmon with poached eggs on biscuits, which was in fact poached salmon rather than smoked salmon but was still very tasty.... More

This is a new "must do" in New Orleans. Nice atmosphere and great service. The Bananas Foster Pain Perdu is heavenly. Must try.

My friends and I went to New Orleans to celebrate one of the girl’s upcoming wedding. We were looking for a brunch spot and saw that the Ruby Slipper Café was well reviewed. We decided to brunch here and it was conveniently located across the street from our hotel. We got there at 11am on a Saturday morning and the... More

The place has the best breakfast ever! We did have to wait about 20 minutes and that's arriving at opening. I had the shrimp and grits and my hubby had the pancakes with sausage. Both dishes were great. Would definitely eat there again but would arrive BEFORE it opens.
