This is well worth the short drive from Pensacola Beach! Tucked away in the Palafox area of downtown Pensacola, this is a gem of a restaurant. French toast batons will change your life! Service was fast and friendly and prices are reasonable.

The Ruby Slipper Cafe is a fantastic brunch spot in the heart of Downtown Pensacola. Buckle your seatbelt for big flavors and big portions. The Bloody Mary with bacon-infused vodka is an A+.

Got lunch after walking around the cute downtown shops. Good food- I got the Peacemaker, which allowed me to choose 2 different specialty Benedict’s. I got the fried chicken one and the bacon and tomato one. Both were great. So much food! Great Bloody Mary!...More

First, I would highly recommend using Nowait to make a reservation and keep from having such a long wait. We really enjoyed the Louisiana Omelet with Cheese Grits, The Peacemaker was also an excellent Benedict. The best by far was the Banana Fosters French Toast....More

Wonderful food and breakfast place. It is pricerier, but portions are large. The bacon is great and splendid variety of eggs Benedict. Coffee/alcoholic drink was not worth price, but food defintely was. Wish we could have gone back.
