We often see the line outside of the Ruby Slipper as we leave our hotel and head towards the interstate. This morning we finally had an opportunity to visit before we had to hit the road. As we approached, we noticed the familiar line out the door and my stomach sank because I was dreading the wait. We turned our... More

If your hungry for an amazing New Orleans breakfast/brunch do I have a place for you! The Ruby Slipper cooks up a storm with its sumptuous multiple eggs benedict options, award winning bacon bloody Mary's and great service. I will be back but beware of the lines.

Ate breakfast at the "Slipper" every morning for five days. The place was packed every morning but the staff is phenomenal. Breakfast came quickly and coffee cups refilled without asking. The food is fantastic - everything from Eggs Benedict to shrimp and grits and my personal addiction - fried green tomatoes and biscuits. When you go be sure to read... More

Pricey but delicious breakfast spot. We really loved the food a lot here. We especially liked the Brrakfast Burrito, Cochon Benedict and the Cinnamon Swirl pancakes. The food and service are both very good here and it's always hopping busy during rush breakfast/brunch times.

This was right next to our hotel and we were pleasantly surprised to find that it was a good place to eat. There was a wide selection of breakfast and lunch items, so it was a great place for brunch, and not too expensive either. Service was great and we can thoroughly recommend it as a good place to eat... More

My hotel (Pelham hotel) has no space for restaurant. Ruby Slipper is located next to our hotel. So I chose to have breakfast here. In the very first day of my stay, the queue was very long, I decided to have breakfast in other restaurant. But in other days I tried to get up early to have breakfast around 8... More

This came recommended by friends who had just visited New Orleans. I know why after eating there. The poached eggs over bbq pork and biscuit was to die for. Really, really good. My daughter had the banana foster pancakes. Yum!!!! The other member of our party had a basic breakfast combo, eggs, bacon, potatoes and a pancake. When he ordered... More

Get your name in early for this hopping brunch spot just off Canal. A mixture of tourists and locals and great southern-style food. They even serve you drinks on the sidewalk while you wait for your table - smart! We ordered an omelet and the shrimp and biscuits. We took first available and sat at the bar. Great food, great...

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.
