The grand opening also falls on National Eggs Benedict Day. In honor of the day, the restaurant will offer the combination of any Benedict paired with a Bloody Mary to guests at a special price as well as some unexpected Ruby Slipper festivities.

The new Ruby Slipper Cafe location will be the first to open in Metairie. Owners of the beloved brunch spot plan to open at 2700 Metairie Road, in the space currently occupied by Café B, near Rock-N-Sake and Shipley’s Donuts.

“Metairie Road is a thriving neighborhood corridor in Greater New Orleans,” said Jennifer Weishaupt, co-owner of The Ruby Slipper Café. “We are excited to finally give our Jefferson Parish fans a Ruby Slipper of their own. We hope locals will appreciate the new and convenient location and make us part of their routines for breakfast, brunch and lunch.”

The old Metairie location will feature the same classic menu with signature twists on New Orleans favorites, like the award-winning BBQ Shrimp & Grits, Eggs Cochon Benedict and Bananas Foster Pain Perdu. These dishes, as well as café’s eye-opening cocktails are some of the many reasons The Ruby Slipper Café continues to be included on “best of” lists across the Gulf South.

Guests are invited to dine at the new location and partake in the grand opening fun. Festivities include a ribbon cutting and a ceremony with a traditional New Orleans second line and brass band.

The restaurant will serve breakfast, brunch and lunch from 7 a.m. to  3 p.m.

The new location will mark The Ruby Slipper Café’s eleventh restaurant in total and its eighth in Louisiana.
