The Ruby Slipper CafÃ© 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 cafÃ© 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 CafÃ© 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.
