We walked down to the waterfront and decided to reward ourselves with a stop at the Ruby Slipper Cafe. One of the best breakfasts I have ever had. Glad we stopped.

We have eaten at Ruby Slipper several times. The menu choice is huge,, hard to make a decision. Our food selection was absolutely delicious. The wait staff is frienly and helpful with suggestions. Nice atmosphere inside and great outdoor seating, although limited outdoor seating.

Won’t go back. Terrible biscuits. Dry omelet. They had 2 people sitting outside at a table for 6 and the inside bar open. 30 min wait. I’d rather enjoy Coffee Cup or CJs.More
