“We are excited that our Ruby Slipper family has continued to expand so successfully across the Gulf Coast” said Jennifer Weishaupt, owner of The Ruby Slipper Café. “And we can’t imagine a better way to celebrate than with a second line at the beach. We look forward to serving the Orange Beach community.”
The Ruby Slipper Café invited guests to enjoy complimentary breakfast or lunch, attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony, complete with a traditional New Orleans second line around the restaurant, and the opportunity to taste the Ruby Slipper Café’s twist on old Southern favorites in the heart of Orange Beach. The Café’s BBQ Shrimp & Grits, Bananas Foster Pain Perdu and St. Charles Chicken are just a few of the reasons The Ruby Slipper Café in Pensacola won four Best of the Bay awards in 2016, restaurant reps said.
