A neighborhood cafe specializing in Breakfast, Lunch & Brunch. Breakfast served all day, every day! Conveniently located in the Central Business District, one block from the Canal Streetcar line, and just steps to the French Quarter and Warehouse District.
Great breakfast and service! We went for breakfast during the weekday and it was packed (not long wait at all 15min tops). Tried to go back during the weekend - make sure you get there early! It was packed!!! I would definitely go back again...More
We stayed just down the street for 8 days and this place was always packed. The only day that we waited just 15 minutes was the day it was raining hard and very windy! Food was great ....tried the trifecta eggs benedict and loved the...More
Came here after we did a Garden District tour. I wish we had the opportunity to come back again during our visit to New Orleans. We really enjoyed our brunch. I got a biscuit, eggs, bacon, and fried green tomato (my first!). It was all...More
We waited quite a while to be seated on a rainy Sunday morning. That said, they did take drink orders for the hungry folks on line. The restaurant itself was incredibly loud. The service was outstanding - it was almost unbelievable how quickly our food...More
Great food, we actually had breakfast here twice, once to the bustling Magazine St location and once to the smaller more quaint Decatur St location. I loved that they had a kids menu!! In a town that caters to a more adult crowd it can...More
You have to stop for brunch at the Ruby Slipper and be sure to ask for Juli! The King Cake Stuffed French Toast was perfection as were the catfish grits! Juli was an amazing server, getting everything right and going above and beyond to make...More

Thanks for your review Amber! We also appreciate you sharing your favorite from our menu!
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.

They do not take reservations. You will definitely need to plan on a wait. There is an app called Nowait that allows you to put your name in before you arrive and will tell you how long your wait will be. That helps. Food is... More

I am not sure - but if you don’t see anything on the menu - then they are probably not a good bet. I will add that we went to Meals from Heart Cafe which did have vegan and GF options. They are not a cafe so much as a stall/restaurant in an open Farmers Market. (There are tables and chairs nearby if you can get one). They had really tasty food and seemed to know what they are doing for GF and I am guessing Vegan.
