The gist: There was much fanfare in the Charlotte brunch community when Ruby Sunshine -- the latest concept from the owners of New Orleans- staple Ruby Slipper Café -- opened in South End.
The food: Only open for breakfast, brunch, and lunch, Ruby Sunshine features staples such as shrimp and grits, omelets, but also takes it to the next level by offering varieties. Want eggs benedict? You’ll have seven options to choose from. Between the food and the cocktail menu, you may want to plan for an afternoon nap.
The cost: Starters begin at $5 and then go up to $20 for a specialty dish. Coffee drinks available for about $4 and cocktails are $10.
How to order: Check your wait time on Yelp as reservations are not accepted. Order takeout from Toast and delivery via DoorDash.
