Decent breakfast/brunch place. Separate GF menu with more than typical options, waiter checked in with manager. Meal came out with a little flag toothpick. I ordered French toast, which was good.

They have a gluten free menu, but aren’t celiac friendly. French toast is made with gluten free bread, but dipped in same mix as regular French toast and cooked on same surface. Egg sandwich is cooked on same surface. I was only able to eat fruit cup.

Server said that anything on the menu can be gluten free, since they’ll just give me gf bread instead of regular bread. Already alarm bells going off. “GF” bread is toasted with everything else, and no cross contamination procedures. Out of the meal I ordered, I only ate my omelette. It was alright, but I was definitely still hungry leaving. Not worth the risk if you have celiac.

The unbelievable happened here. I told my server I had celiacs and to leave the biscuits off the omelette plate. The food runner brought it out with biscuits on it and I said “Oh no I’m sorry but I can’t eat that now I have celiacs. I will get very ill if I eat that go ahead and take it back”. The food runner took it back and came right back within 30 seconds! And said, “crazy enough, the kitchen had an extra shrimp omelette and the table it was for doesn’t need it.” She set it down and I looked at the plate and could clearly see the bread crumbs from biscuits. They didn’t even try to switch the plates to hide it! Thank goodness I caught it! HORRIBLE. I said “these are bread crumbs… I’m not eating this, take it back” after touching the bread crumbs with my fingers to confirm. I was so upset that she had just tried to lie to someone who could be severely hurt from such a contamination. My server touched base and I told her everything, she apologized as her parents have celiacs and she said she completely understood. The manager came out and apologized and said they’d bring out a hot fresh one that would be safe. He assured me it wouldn’t be contaminated. Surprisingly I trusted him and it looked okay but it was so disturbing that she did that. I asked for her name but never ended up getting it from anyone. Somehow that got dodged. Huge liability at this place. Beware if you have an allergy.

Love Ruby Slipper and their gf menu has many options. Great food. Update - just found out the gf French toast is not gf - they dip the gf bread in the same batter as the gluten bread.

I went and they had the gf menu on the website. I ordered the gf breakfast sandwich. It was pretty good. I also got french fries. The bread is okay, it’s kinda dry and tasteless. The vanilla iced coffee was pretty good.

I can’t brag on this brunch spot enough! The fact that they have a gluten free menu is amazing! My husband is the Celiac in our family, but I eat gluten free with him. We both ordered off the GF menu. He ordered the Migas (tex-mex bowl) and I got the French Toast. Those were the two he was torn between and that way he could try both! They were both great and our waitress was very knowledgeable along with the rest of the staff. Would HIGHLY recommend this restaurant for your brunch!

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.

Absolutely incredible! Might be one of the best breakfasts I’ve ever had. I highly recommend the salmon avocado toast on GF bread. The grapefruit gin drink was great too. Separate GF menu with items clearly marked for other allergies as well.

We enjoyed their food so much that we ate here twice on our vacation. They have a wonderful selection of gluten free options. I love the fact that they have gluten free by their adult beverages because you really never know with mixes that go into them sometimes. Both mornings I had the gluten free French toast with bacon, and a side of eggs. Delicious! For drinks I tried the Morning Margarita, Bloody Mary and Boozy Iced Coffee. The Bloody Mary is spicy. I would eat here again and again.

I trusted the other reviewer and had the Costa Rican breakfast with no issues. Menus do not have GF items marked, but the server was kind and spoke with the chef to be certain (that the grits are an option.)

Been wanting to try this place since I read the reviews. So glad I did! They made my shrimp and mushroom omelette to order and provided Udi’s brand toast. They said to use the online menu for the most up to date gluten free menu options.

Also, don’t be confused by the icons on the menu. Just look for the GF marked next to the meals.

My travel companion has the Miga Hispanic inspired egg scramble and said it was tolerably spicy and highly flavorful.

My waiter was great. Able to help me identify what was gluten free on the menu. There is nothing marked as gluten free. Omelettes are usually a safe bet at places like this. Just let them know of a gluten allergy and they can mark it in their system which will take out things with gluten in it.

The menu is not labeled and they have GF bread and can make French toast, eggs Benedict. They were very mindful of my GF need and prepared everything special to minimize cross contamination. They did not toast my bread or cook my food on the spared grill. I got an omelette, chicken sausage, fruit, and toast. It was good.

I experienced cross contamination with this restaurant even after being reassured they take it very seriously. They used regular bread on my sandwich even though I specifically said gluten free because having celiac. I don’t think the waitress understood. Definitely don’t recommend.
