I definitely recommend the stuffed French toast! The flavor changes daily. I had the vanilla cheesecake and bacon on the side! I was excited about the mimosas but they were just average in my opinion. There was a little bit of a wait, but the...More

The Ruby Slipper offered a welcoming atmosphere, great service and delicious food! You definitely get what you pay for - the servings are fairly big. Mimosas are a must-try!

Had breakfast here - pancakes are very good. The server we had was friendly and accurate. You might have a wait, but it's worth it!

I would have given a 5 star review except we had to wait over 2 hours--even though our projected time was an hour. And many groups of similar size went in first. They use apps to help with the wait list and merge it somehow...More

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

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
