Ruby Sunshine is the newest restaurant from the owners of New Orleans' beloved Ruby Slipper Café. Bringing the same Big Easy twist to breakfast and brunch classics, Ruby Sunshine marks the company's first foray outside of the Southern Gulf region of the U.S.
Ruby Sunshine, the all day brunch concept will open in downtown Franklin, TN; Knoxville; TN and Birmingham, Al in 2019. The latest concept from Ruby Slipper Restaurant Group, the collective behind the acclaimed New Orleans-based eatery Ruby Slipper Café, Ruby Sunshine will offer Big Easy twists on Southern brunch classics, including benedicts, pancakes, and French Toast, as well as eye-opening cocktails. Owned and operated by the Ruby Slipper Café founders, Ruby Sunshine in Franklin will mark the first of more locations to come across the Southeast.
Inspired by the powerful sense of homecoming they felt when they returned to New Orleans post-Hurricane Katrina, husband and wife duo Jennifer and Erich Weishaupt opened the original Ruby Slipper Café in an effort to help draw people back to their Mid-City neighborhood. Born from a cozy storefront in 2008, Ruby Slipper Restaurant Group has grown to operate 10 Ruby Slipper Café locations across the Gulf Region and will expand throughout the Southeast with Ruby Sunshine, providing new audiences with the unique flavors and hospitality that Ruby Slipper Café is known and loved for.
