Breakfast and brunch gem and mini-chain, Ruby Slipper, has thrown open the doors to its tenth location, this time in the French Quarter (204 Decatur Street) in the former home of Olivier’s Creole Restaurant, which shuttered in 2015 after 20 years.
Seating only 60 people at a time, the newest Ruby Slipper is cozier than some of the most recent outlets the chain has opened. In terms of size, it feels more in line with the original Ruby Slipper on Cortez Street in Mid City, according to a statement. It’ll serve the same menu as the other locations.
Ruby Slipper owners Jennifer and Erich Weishaupt have six other locations in New Orleans, plus two in Alabama, one in Florida, and one in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
“We are thrilled to be part of the French Quarter, one of New Orleans’ most iconic neighborhoods. As with our other cafés, we know this location on Decatur, with its charming size and proximity to French Quarter activities, will have its own unique flair, and we’re excited to share that with our customers,” Jennifer Weishaupt said in a statement.
The Ruby Slipper expansion contributes to a recent uptick in breakfast cafes in the New Orleans area. Toast announced an expansion to the French Quarter (to be called French Toast). Surrey’s is opening a third location near Tulane soon. And lauded Turkey and the Wolf’s next move is a breakfast spot on Magazine called Molly’s Rise and Shine.
