Residents and locals alike were thrilled for New Orleans-based Ruby Slipper to open a new location in Destin serving up their signature creative twists on brunch classics and eye-opening cocktails seven days a week, including Eggs Cochon, Bananas Foster Pain Perdu, and an award-winning Bacon Bloody Mary.
Founded in May 2008 after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, the original Ruby Slipper café was born in a rejuvenated Mid-City corner store that quickly became a vibrant gather place for neighbors to enjoy breakfast, lunch, and brunch in an inviting atmosphere. Owners (husband and wife) Erich and Jennifer went on to open additional New Orleans locations, eventually branching out of the city with a location in Pensacola. The restaurant group has now expanded to multiple states and locations.
The Destin café features the brand’s signature welcoming and vibrant atmosphere with both indoor and outdoor seating. Highlights of the menu include Eggs Benedicts, Beignets, and White Chocolate Bread Pudding Pancakes. As their motto of “There are few things in life a mimosa can’t solve,” suggests, a variety of eye-opening cocktails are also available to sample.
“Brunch is so much more than a meal. It’s a culture. A lifestyle. Something just happens at a brunch table, and we’re excited to bring our point of view and experience to the beautiful Florida Panhandle and make it accessible every day of the week” said Peter Gaudreau, CEO of Ruby Slipper Restaurant Group.
Ruby Slipper Destin is open seven days a week and located at 34902 Emerald Coast Pkwy, Destin, FL 32541. Follow them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/RubySlipperDestin or Instagram at @RubySlipperDestin.
