Regional breakfast franchise Brick and Spoon (www.brickandspoonrestaurant.com) closed its Magazine Street location two weeks ago, but another popular breakfast and brunch spot has jumped on the spot. Ruby Slipper Cafe (www.therubyslippercafe.net) will open its fifth New Orleans location at 2802 Magazine St. in January, the restaurant's owners announced Dec. 5. The company also has locations in Orange Beach, Florida and Pensacola, Florida.
"We've had our eye on opening a location Uptown for years and this location off the corner at Washington and Magazine Street seems like the perfect spot," owner Jennifer Weishaupt said in a prepared statement.
Ruby Slipper's Southern-inspired breakfast and lunch menu includes biscuits, sandwiches and egg dishes, including signature eggs cochon and shrimp Cortez.
The new location will be open 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday and 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
Brick and Spoon opened on Magazine Street in February 2016. The closing was announced in a post on its Facebook page (which since has been removed) and a sign on the restaurant's front door. The company opened its first location in Lafayette in 2013 and currently has one location in Louisiana and one in Alabama.
