I have discussed the superb breakfasts at the Ruby Slipper Cafe in New Orleans many times, most recently here, but they have now opened a location in the former Banks Cafe on Burgundy Street in the Marigny neighborhood. The building is a former location of the Canal Trust and Savings Bank, which was an institution that funded a canal whose turning basin led to the name Basin Street (the canal was filled in in the early 1930’s, and a proposed extension of it led to the name Canal Street, although the extension was never built). The food is good as always, just as it is at the other Ruby Slipper locations, but it’s great to see additional breakfast options opening on the east side of the Quarter.
