The Ruby Slipper Café


The Ruby Slipper Café is not to be missed when visiting Orange Beach, Alabama, especially for breakfast when it serves its signature biscuits with house-made sugar cane butter. Yum! The benedicts are served on the biscuits and are very popular for that reason. The café also serves omelets, pancakes, French toast and the like, as well as a la carte options such as stone-ground grits and candied bacon. Lighter options, a kids’ menu and lunch menu are available, as well.

The Ruby Slipper Café was inspired by “The Wizard of Oz” when its owners returned home to New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina. They wanted to help rebuild their community and give residents a place that felt like home. The popular restaurant has since expanded to many Southern cities.

It’s open 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday to Friday, staying open until 3 p.m. on weekends.
