We wanted to hit this place after seeing reviews on TripAdvisor and I have to say it was OK and pricy. I had the benedict that was served with Applewood bacon, which was chewy.

The egg combinations were imaginative and fun. Great presentation. It is a little crowded though - small and popular. Looks a little isolated and dumpy from the outside.

I consider myself a tough customer and a brunch dilettante, but my real area of expertise is in the taxonomy and appraisal of the elusive delicious egg biscuit sandwich. It is in this particular genus of menu items where the ruby slipper excels in every way. Don't walk, run to this establishment and order one immediately.

The food was delicious and the service was great! Everything looked scrumptious when it was delivered to the table. I really enjoyed the Bananas Foster Pain Perdu!!! The berry mimosa was quite tasty as well. Everyone enjoyed their breakfast and the portions were certainly filling. Definitely would recommend it for a breakfast stop!

Get your group together and go enjoy a breakfast or brunch in old New Orleans. A wide variety of choices are available. Portions are large and served hot. Not a low calorie experience, but you are probably on vacation so splurge!

Now the location fills up quickly, but the staff is there for you. They will do what you need. Let's talk about the biscuits large, light and flavorful. Bacon is cooked to order as well as the eggs. The French toast is to die for and you will leave have of the pancakes you order. Only negative wish you could... More
