It's brunch time! The Ruby Slipper Cafe is well-known to be one of the best spots to down eggs benedict in the area, so we lined up bright and early to get our seat - and there was already a line 15 minutes prior to opening!
First things first: cocktails. I ordered a "Ruby Slipper," which is a mimosa with OJ and pomegranate.
The Ruby Slipper Cafe is an award-winning cafe famous for our breakfast, brunch & lunch offerings. We bring New Orleans flair to southern breakfast standards, brunch classics and fresh lunch dishes. We were founded in New Orleans, Louisiana in 2008. From there we have grown to 10 locations! Six in New Orleans, one in Baton Rouge, La. and three stretching along cities on the Gulf Coast including, Mobile, Orange Beach and Pensacola Fl.
I didn't get a ton of pomegranate in mine - but what a concept! I'd like pomegranate in every drink of mine for the rest of time, thanks.
Next up came the hard part: Choosing which benedicts I wanted.
Fortunately, they have a genius option called "The Peacemaker," where you can mix and match two signature benedicts.
I ended up ordering two of their best-sellers:
Slow-cooked, apple-braised pork debris served over a buttermilk biscuit, topped with two poached eggs, finished with hollandaise
CHICKEN ST. CHARLES Fried chicken breast served over a buttermilk biscuit, topped with two poached eggs, finished with a pork tasso cream sauce
You truly can't go wrong with either. Both fabulous.
