Review of Ruby Slipper Cafe

204 Decatur St, New Orleans, LA 70130

Overall Rating


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.
