People were waiting outside the door, however, we only had a 15 minute wait. Well worth it. Was recommended to us by our cab driver. The service, food, atmosphere were all excellent. Highly recommend this place for breakfast or brunch. Did not come here for anything else, but would assume it would not disappoint. I had the eggs cochon? I... More

My family ate at the Ruby Slipper last week. While we were seated immediately- normally there is a line - the food was very slow in coming out. However when it did come out it was incredible. The service was below expectations for a breakfast restaurant. The omelet was one of the best I have ever had. I would go... More

best breakfast ever...and i'm not saying this because i drank a double bellini either...that was just the icing on the cake. I had the Eggs Cochon and enjoyed every bite of it. i'm depressed knowing that i might not ever eat something so good again. totally worth the 35min wait.

This was located right across the street from our hotel. I noticed the breakfast line going out the door, which drew me in. The line moves fast, so don't let the long line put you off. I had the breakfast sandwich, which was delish! It consisted of a giant homemade biscuit, fried egg, ham, fried green tomato and cheese (... More

Had lunch here when I arrived in town. I sat at the bar and enjoyed conversation with the bar staff. I had a Miami Slice. It was really good as well as the fries. Laid back casual atmosphere. The T-shirts were pretty cool, though I didn't get one.
