Cute place and friendly staff, but I'm an Italian-roast kind of coffee drinker and they use beans with a different roasting process. All a matter of preference. Some people love that variety but I find it grassy.

The latte was nice. The lemons for the lemonade were cut right after the order. The place has an atmosphere, a bit on the cold side, but still nice.

Be patient. Coffees made by hand and on the weekday morning we visited only one person was a maker. She was most unhurried and attentive to local regulars. The coffee was delicious if very very pricey. But coffee elsewhere is not anywhere near as good....More

Sat by the fire. Grilled cheese is to die for! Great selection of sandwiches and other featuring Rubiner's amazing cheeses. Reasonable pricing.

We'd done our homework online and thought Rubi's cafe would be the ideal spot for a light lunch. We ordered two meat / cheese platters and a bottle of white wine (the wine, by the way, was excellent) between four adults...this light lunch cost $95....More

Everything about our lunch experience here was horrible. The employee who took our order was beyond indifferent. It took more than 35 minutes to make and serve one tuna melt sandwich. The tables were dirty and paint was peeling off the walls.

grilled cheese to die for. Loved the smells, the atmosphere and the coffee. Def worth the walk down the alley. They have wine too!

We have been eating lunch at Rubi's since 2013 when ever we are in Great Barrington because we love the ambience, coffee and the grilled cheese on Pullman bread. Our recent lunch was a huge disappointment. We had grilled bread sandwiches with barely enough cheese...More
