The most delicious breakfast and brilliant service

We visited this restaurant for breakfast on Thursday 19th February. We were shown to our seat immediately and given water and soft drinks by the most friendliest server. She was lovely. I wish I could remember her name. I got the Spanish Omlette with a red pepper sauce and chorizo and my partner... read more

Ruby Red Slipper is a local restaurant that has 4 locations in New Orleans. Fortunately, one of their restaurants was on Magazine Street only a couple of blocks from our hotel. It is a very classy looking and popular place. At 9:30 AM we had to wait outside in line for between 20 and 25 minutes before we could be... More

This is a very busy place! Lots of people were in town for Mardi Gras so they were extra busy on this Lundi Gras Day. We arrived at around 1:45pm and the place closes at 2pm. The hostess told us that as long as we were on the waiting list before 2pm, we would be seated and served. True to... More

We loved our breakfast here on a Friday morning. Our waitress told us that eating breakfast here was the reason she moved to New Orleans! The food is all the local specialties you could ever want to try. It felt like mostly locals there, and on Saturday morning there was a loooong line to get in for breakfast. Highly recommended...

Great service, great building. Excellent breakfast/brunch. The grits and biscuits are enough to come back for.

If you enjoy a hearty breakfast or brunch, this is the place to go. The Egg Cochon is to die for! Large omelets, delicious home fries and quick service once you get through the waiting line (which goes fairly fast). Numerous locations throughout New Orleans.

This was the best breakfast i had while in new orleans, everything looks and taste so delicious. Everyone told me that i had to go to Cafe Du Monde, but this place blows Cafe Du Monde out of the water. The wait was kind of long, but well worth it. I will be returning next month when im in new...
