Great Breakfast Place

This is a GREAT little breakfast/brunch place. Food is great and abundant. Buttermilk biscuits are to die for. A definite must!

This restaurant was across the street from our hotel. Every day we watched people line up and wait for tables all morning long. Finally we decided to go and see what all the fuss was about. The service was fantastic! Our server was extremely knowledgeable and helped us decide what to order. There were so many yummy options it was... More

My sister and I arrived in new orleans early in the morning after an entire night between airports. Needless to say we were exhausted and starving. We found this place as we were wandering around our hotel and it completely brought us back to life! Tasty, fresh, and generous meals in a casual yet authentic atmosphere. Go on weekdays if... More

Food was not good. Omelets had no flavor. Service was not good. We had to ask for everything. Bacon cold and biscuit were hard. Couldn't even get refill on water. Would not recommend

We ate here because my brother had been to New Orleans and said it was a fantastic place for breakfast. After a 45 min wait as it is very popular we were really disappointed with the food. We certainly didn't go back. Interestingly enough my brother visited New Orleans shortly after we'd been there. He went back to The Ruby... More

Breakfast was quite tasty. Watch out for the fast forming line. Above average breakfast place, with average prices. Eat outside and watch the world walk by.

The Ruby Slipper is across the street from the Belle Maison Windham hotel on Magazine street. We arrived in NOLA in the afternoon and were checking out the menu when a local came walking by and told us how great the breakfasts were at the RS. My brothers and our wives ended up having breakfast there each of the three... More

The food was excellent and the staff was great. But be prepared to wait for a table unless you get there late like I did 1hour before closing then you can get right in.
