Great Breakfast and Service

We were quite early arriving around 7:30AM so beat the Sunday morning line-up. The hostess seated us quickly and our server introduced herself, gave us our menu and went off to get our coffee. My sister had an a la carte breakfast of Sausage, Bacon, Eggs and Toast while I chose Banana Pecan... read more

After hearing and reading several reviews, we decided to try The Ruby Slipper on a Sunday morning. We knew there would be a wait, as we had seen the line outside the day before. When we were told the wait would be 60 to 75 minutes, we decided to explore the shops on Canal Street and returned an hour later.... More

Travelling solo and after reading so many websites on where to go and more importantly where to EAT, this place was one of the top for breakfast places! There is a hostess waiting outside and will tell you how long you have to wait for a table, you'll always have to wait as this places is alleys busy! Plus point,... More

A fun place to eat a wonderful breakfast. The service was good and the food was great. This restaurant was within easy walking distance from the JW Marriott hotel where we were staying.

I'm describing the 2 meals we had right off the menu and they were superb. I've never enjoyed french toaast like this before. CHEESECAKE STUFFED FRENCH TOAST - Brioche-based french toast stuffed with a daily special cheesecake filling served with applewood-smoked bacon.

This is a great spot for breakfast/brunch. Nice menu selection, delicious food good service, exciting atmosphere. We had an omelette and one of the eggs Benedict dishes both were awesome. Big portions could easily split a meal. Really enjoyed would return

This place is only open for breakfast/brunch hours, but is definitely worth it. If you don't want to wait for an hour then try to arrive before 11. Wonderful omelettes and mimosas.

Both the food and service were very good. We waited about 45mins. We know we should of gotten there earlier because of this. Our server kept our coffee cups filled and the food was better than your average breakfast spot. The only reason I didn't give them a five is because they didn't have any biscuits for us.

This restaurant features great food, great drinks, great service. I would highly recommend trying this, if you are in New Orleans. We had Bloody Marys (one of the best I've ever tasted). I tried the Hot-Smoked Salmon Bennie for lunch. This was an excellent choice, from my perspective. Their menu has so many mouth-watering selections, without being overwhelming. By all... More

We were told by the hostess to expect a wait of 45 minutes to an hour, and we waited, outside, 45 minutes to an hour -- refreshed by maybe the best Bloody Mary ever (garnished with pickled green beans, better than you think, and a strip of bacon). We each had benedict variations (this was breakfast) -- one of them... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
