We wound up at Ruby's for lunch after visiting the Bradbury Science Museum. Nice fresh chicken Caesar salad and my sister-in-law enjoyed her tuna salad.

Ruby's K Bagel Café is one of those little places that are easy to miss unless you are a local. We are not local but stumbled upon this little gem of a deli by accident one day. They have to the most mouth watering Bagels, Sandwiches and Soups you've ever tasted. Their daily Soups are also to die for, It's... More

Mainly bagels but sandwiches, salads and soups available. Right next to Starbucks and across the street from Fuller Lodge, also serves smoothies! Great on a hot day!

Often the owner: Ruby will be personally greeting the guests, and goes out of her way to make kind comments. From the way her employees treat guests shows she mentored them well. The food is perfectly lovely!

We stumbled upon Ruby K's bagel cafe after a lovely morning touring the historical sites in LA. What a fantastic cafe! My teenager had the turkey/bacon bagel sandwich and declared it "the best ever". We took a half dozen variety (chocolate chip, cinnamon crunch, salt, green chile cheese) back to ABQ for Sunday breakfast. The service was accurate and fast.... More

Sammies are good. Ruben and bagel bread selections add some nice flavor. Gets a little busy at lunch so seats are sometimes hard to find.

They have a great variety of bagels and rolls, and they have a decent breakfast and lunch menu. The quality is good value for money. However, the two times I went there and ordered a sandwich, I sat and waited while they forgot/passed by my order. The result was an excessive wait time, having to re-order my meal, and being...

We arrived in Los Alamos around Noon, and wanted a quick bite before the Bradbury Museum. This cafe is located next to a typical Starbucks, and we are glad we chose this place. The line was nearly out the door, but it moved quickly. Had a nice turkey club on multi-grain bagel, which comes with pickle and chips. Some outdoor... More

You know Ruby K's must be good when you see the length of the line for this fast food take-out or eat-in sandwich shop. We enjoyed our cashew chicken sandwich with bagel chips and chicken bacon Swiss wrap with fruit, as well as the "Orange U Happy" smoothie. Service was friendly. In a town with limited foodie resources, this one... More
