They give you plenty of food! I'm told the Mimosas were great. Loved the pancakes as well. They were textured perfectly. You don't have to wait for a counter seat, but a wait is not uncommon.

My hubby took me to New Orleans and once we had the food here, we came every day of the vacation. Great food and fabulous Mimosas!

Lived in Nola before & never ate here, but always heard the hype so on a visiting trip I made a point to visit, guess I've just had a better Salmon benedict, as I was not too impressed. My partner had the Cornbeef benedict that too was just okay. These weren't their "specialty menu items" but just expected more. Irish... More

Hollandaise is made of butter, egg yolk and a little lemon. If you advertise hollandaise, it should not be a thick cheese sauce. Ick. Thumbs down on the Ruby Slipper. The menu looks so promising. But what you get are huge over flavored portions of dry over cooked eggs drowned in thick cheese sauce. Golden Corral you have some competition... More

I've been to New Orleans several times, but have never actually been up to eat breakfast. I started my trip out this time with the Ruby Slipper after reading Trip Advisor reviews and it did not disappoint! I had the Smoked Salmon Benny and it was great. The poached eggs were a little overcooked, but the whole meal was amazing.... More

We went on the recommendation of two foodie friends. The omelets were fantastic. The three pigs was good and the Migas was outstanding. It is worth the wait in line.

We went at a busy time (Sunday brunch) and were told it would be a 35 minute wait. We were seated in 5 minutes! The menu had some interesting choices such as panko coated goat cheese coins (they were more round), and pig-candy bacon (bacon with brown sugar on it). I had an open faced egg sandwich with hollandaise sauce.... More

I consider myself a breakfast connoisseur - especially when it comes to anything from the griddle (pancakes, french toast, crepes, etc.) and this place is legit. The pancakes are cooked in a little bit of oil so they get that fried taste and crunch. The french toast on real french bread is even better. The omelettes looked great...I wish I... More

Excellent breakfast with a variety of egg dishes combined with sea food and meats. Very busy place but moves fast. The woman at the entrance in charge of sitting people does an incredible job of managing the crowds. Hours are from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
