This place is always on our list when we visit NOLA! The food is delicious and we had super service. Sometimes there is a bit of a wait but well worth it. Great food and fun! Original Benedict 👍🏻👍🏻

Here is where diners find creative and delicious meals in a casual mid-city location. The meals are not only tasty, but all servings are huge that are perfect for leftovers.

Food was good, as usual. Biscuit was a bit dry but we put some gravy on it. Service was basic this time. Had to ask for straws and a booster seat several times. Spot in Marigny had better service.

Nice atmosphere. Not very crowded this time of day. Courteous and friendly staff. French toast and fried green tomato were excellent. Pancakes were satisfactory but way too big. Biscuit was hard and cold not even warm. Hope they realize when you microwave it becomes hard....More

We visited the Ruby Slipper twice during our four night stay in New Orleans. It was suggested to us by our airbnb hosts. Absolutely loved the place! Beautiful restaurant, friendly staff and amazing food. French Toast and Migas were among the best I've ever had....More

There's no better way to start the day than with a great breakfast that I didn't have to make! And the Ruby Slipper did not disappoint. We started off with Bacon Bloody Marys complete with a thick slice of bacon, green olives and crispy green...More
