Ate here for brunch it's busy so make sure you add your name online so you don't have to stand for an hour or so. The food was worth the wait, they have an extensive menu of gf options. I had the breakfast plate with eggs, grits, chicken sausage and toast.

While their menu if full of gluten free items, it is NOT safe for someone with celiac.

After we ordered, the manager thankfully brought our food out and asked my wife if she had celiac or it was a preference and that is when she explained that they make their biscuits in house so flour cross contamination is very real. They grill all their foods on the same grill and they bake their gluten free bread in the SAME toaster/oven as their biscuits.

Once we found that out, my wife opted to not eat and just munch on the bowl of fruit I had ordered as a side. They took her meal off our bill and apologized for not making that clear when we sat down.

It's a shame because the food I ordered was very good.

Bottom line, if cross contamination is an issue for you, do NOT eat here.

There's a separate GF menu and a few other specialties. I had the egg, bacon sandwich and it was great.

We had a great experience here! There is a specific dietary preference menu found online. I had the gf French toast, omelet, breakfast potatoes, and a latte- all delicious. Our server was Kristy, and she was knowledgeable and friendly. She also was patient with my questions and dietary concerns. We came in from Philadelphia, and this was our first stop.

We ate at Ruby Slipper this morning. It’s best to put your name on the waitlist, as it was quite busy. We waited about 25 minutes during a non-busy season here. The GF menu was separate, and also included sections for other food sensitivities. I had the Salmon Avocado Toast per another reviewer’s suggestion, and it was delicious. That particular item may not be generous enough for some people, but with a side of fresh fruit and the espresso vanilla latte for dessert was enough for me. Other items like their large burgers (available on GF bread) that I saw go to other tables would be very filling. There are no GF desserts, though my non-GF spouse loved the beignets. This is a New Orleans-based restaurant so their menu includes tasty things from that city.
