what can i say, we went here everyday for breakfast!!
the menu was great and had a great range of dishes!!!
this place is always busy so go early to not wait for a table. The staff there are really friendly and on point (they know what they are doing)!!
i have only given a few 5 stars and this is one of them for sure!!!!
The pricing is really good for the quality of the food you get!

We had a late breakfast at the Ruby Slipper after checking into the hotel next door. The staff were lovely and seated us at a table with enough space for the pram and helping us with our selections.

I dont really even remember what I ordered, because the stand out dish was definitely the Eggs Cochon. Slow cooked pork on a biscuit, poached egg... yum! But, it was very hearty and after a couple of bites you felt like youve eaten a whole meal.

Bring your appetites!

They don't take reservations, so sometimes there's a wait ... but it's sooooo worth it. (Go inside and get a beer at the bar and bring it back outside for while you wait.) It's casual, rustic, fresh and delicious. Generous portions, especially on the french toast and pancakes. The Eggs Coubion is to die for.

The Ruby Slipper opens at 8am and when I got there at 7:50 there was a line of 25 people. By 8:45 all the table were filled and a line was beginning to form again. Moral of the story: get there early or bring a novel and enjoy the wait.

I don't think I've ever had better service in NOLA than here at the Ruby Slipper. Everyone was super friendly, and the speed was impeccable. Their 2 main menu items are omelets ($10) and eggs benedict ($13), both they do extremely well. Get here early, grab a mimosa, and... Enjoy!

Our hotel was across the street from The Ruby Slipper so as decided to try it for breakfast. They do have a large crowd, but it was worst the wait! The breakfast was good and they had a lot of options to try. Other reviewers mentioned the attitude from servers, but we didn't experience anything like that. Our server was attentive, and we had good service. I will eat here the next time I'm in town!
