We ate here three times over a six day vacation! It was amazing. Here you get a nice, filling, comforting breakfast. The service was great every time. And the food! The pancakes were huge and fluffy. The potatoes were just the right amount of crispy. The fruit always fresh. The French toast appeared to be made from a baguette. It... More

My boyfriend and I stumbled upon this place when searching for breakfast on a Friday morning. We were staying at the Omni Royal Crescent only 2 blocks away so it was within walking distance. The wait was only 10 minutes and we sat at the bar. I ordered the spanish omelet with smoked chorizo and red pepper coulis while my... More

Easy to find, one block off canal street. Only open for Bkf and lunch. Good southern foods. They have fried green tomatoes. Looks crowded but they are very organized, get you in quickly. Friendly staff. Good pancakes and stuffed French toast.

We ate breakfast here and the omelette was great and hubby had the French toast. We had a short wait and this is a busy place. Server was fine and we would most definitely return here on another trip to NOLA.

Being from Chicago there is breakfast places everywhere. The lines are long, the food is okay, and if you add a mimosa you leave satisfied. The Ruby Slipper was nothing like that! We came to get breakfast before exploring New Orleans, we made friends with two ladies from DC who recommended it. We are so glad we went. I had... More

A kindly hostess told us the kitchen was open till 2PM and sandwiches were available but the tour de force of the Ruby Slipper was the breakfast items. The Ruby Slipper experience for me (the writer) was terrific. I ordered the Breakfast Sandwich and was thrilled. Apple-wood smoked Bacon, eggs over medium (perfectly cooked), pepper jack cheese all served on... More

The Ruby Slipper was across the street from our hotel so we ate there just because of the location. I am so glad we did. We ate late morning and it was very busy. We were able to sit at the bar. We had excellent service. They had some unique menu items to choose from. The family all got something... More

Ok, maybe Brennan's is better, but you won't pay $50 here. There is always a wait, so prepare yourself, but the seating goes quickly. Specialize in breakfast with a few lunch items. The food is amazing and the portions are huge. We ate here 3 times and had the Bananas Foster Pain Perdu (French toast made from french bread), omelette,... More

We were a large group, so the tip was included. However the waiter didn't seem to realize that, and questioned why we didn't leave a tip. Had to show him the bill and prove that the tip was included. Food was very good and portions were very generous.

We tried the Ruby Slipper for the first time and we really enjoyed it. There was a long wait, but we were seated fairly quickly. We sat at the bar, and the service was good. The waitress/bartender was friendly and helped us pick out our meals by giving us jer honest recommendations. My husband wanted Shrimp and Grits, but she... More
