This was by far the best breakfast place we ate at while in New Orleans. The wait could be a little long, but it is well worth it. We ate here (Magazine St location) twice last week and I must say, it may have been the best breakfast we've ever had. My favorite was the Eggs Cochon. You would not... More

Great food, great service, great cocktails, great atmosphere! They don't take reservations and on Saturday and Sunday the wait time can get long, as long as you get there before 10am it is not too bad! Definitely worth the wait!

I had a shrimp omelet which was perfection, the biscuits are to die for and you can substitute the home fries for fruit! What could be better? The waitress was helpful and I was not feeling well. Great good and service.

The food was very good. Service was fast. Interesting decor. Breakfast: French Toast was big & tasty. IF you dont have a big appetite, you may be able to share with a friend. For Lunch, the pork debris is really good, moist with eggs & hollandaise sauce. Highly recommend this place.

After a reasonable 10 minute wait, we were seated. Service was quick & efficient. My coffee cup was never empty & our food arrived fairly quickly. I had the bananas foster French toast. It was absolutely AMAZING! I ate every last bite & wished it would never end. My husband enjoyed his 3 little pigs omelet, but the star of... More

We waited for 20 minutes, even though it looked like it would be a much longer wait. The fried green tomatoes, grits, biscuits, bacon... It's all amazing.

Excellent breakfast; outstanding service! Nicole, the receptionist, is a model of excellent customer service. She was accommodating, extremely pleasant, greeted me by name when my friends and I returned the second consecutive day for breakfast. Many thanks!

Went to New Orleans for my birthday weekend 9/18 thru 9/20. The hotel concierge recommended The Ruby Slipper on Magazine Street for breakfast. Pleasantly surprised! The food was great, staff was super nice and friendly and our server, Demetra was fantastic. We even went back the next morning and asked for her - had to wait about 25-30 mins to... More
