It was Fall Back Sunday, I like most Americans got that extra hour and woke up early. I looked at the clock and went to the kitchen. I thought about dusting off the stove and looked at my husband. He was watching sports and playing with the kids. It's a Saints BYE week, so no football on the TV this week for me. We have had a pretty high profile season and we are WINNING. I decided to rally up the team and get a brunch squad going. The roster included: Mommy, Daddy, Wesley & Maddie. Next weekend we play the Atlanta Falcons, so we are trying to take Sean Payton's advice. He says "We've got to get our Bloody Marys going before early kickoff.
Maddie insisted on playing with Elmo most of the morning. I still have that Sesame Street song in my head. What's the letter of the day? I screamed B for Brunch. We headed out to Ruby Slipper on 2700 Metairie Road, Metairie, LA 70001.
I heard so many great things about the new location and wanted to see what the hype was about. We joined the waitlist on Yelp. I wanted to get some brunch before the Bloody Mary Festival. The wait was about 45 minutes. Be prepared to wait. You can enjoy one of those delicious drinks while waiting. There were a few drinks that caught my eyes - The Ruby Mimosa, Morning Margarita, Brandy Milk Punch, Boozy Iced Coffee and Belini. I enjoyed the Bloody Mary. Tip: I heard the Margarita was REALLY packed!!
The service was excellent at this restaurant. The manager Jerry and his team should be highly commended. It's a busy and fast paced environment. It takes hard work to work in this environment.
What we ordered:
Taste of Ruby Slipper featuring Eggs Cochon, Chicken St. Charles & Shrimp Boogaloo was all DAT! Y’all this food fed me and the kids for $20! Each item had a unique taste and was good. The Chicken St Charles was my fave and the Shrimp Boogaloo was flavored well. Just a quirk, I like hot sauce and the Ruby Slipper special butter on my brunch biscuits!! BRING ON THE HOT SAUCE! !This was great!
Eggs & Omlets 🍽
Hot smoked salmon and goat cheese, topped with dill hollandaise, red onions & flash fried capers with grits & cheese. Oooh, and that homemade butter is bomb! You have to try the butter!!
Ok, y'all, Ruby Slipper is definitely at the top of my Brunch list and I am telling all my friends. Congrats to Ruby Slipper on winning the Bloody Mary Festival 'Best original recipe and Best restaurants and bars. You certainly deserve it.

Thanks to Ruby Slipper Cafe for the remarkable service especially from Jerry and Ashley! This is another welcome addition to the area.
We really enjoyed the Bloody Mary’s and the food. We plan on coming back again soon and I will definitely try that Margarita.
