My niece is obsessed

My niece had been here before with my mom and sister and insisted we all go together on our last Cali trip . It's such a cute place and the food was great the best little 50s style diner I've ever been to.

We went here and it is normal breakfast food, it is an old fashioned dinner experience. They have kept it up very well. The kids really enjoyed the cars out front and the fold up cars that they get to build while they wait for their food. The plates are huge portions and good breakfast.

Always a good place to eat, any time of day. All meals will fill you up and taste good. .comfort food, comfortable environment, great staff. And won't break the bank. You cannot go wrong at a Rubys! A great place to take the kids. Terrific for us old folks. ( check out the old cars out front).

Rubys is a great diner located on Coast Highway, on the coast! The food is amazing, and the staff are the nicest and most helpful as can be. Good for friends and/ or family alike. Very delicious! Enjoy!

We saw this place on our way into town and decided to eat breakfast on our way out of town a few days later. It is really cute and the cars out front were a great touch. The service was fine and the restaurant and bathrooms were clean. There the positive stops. The food was subpar. I ordered the eggs... More

All Ruby's offer a fun, if faux, vintage dining experience. The burgers are as good as the views, the fries are tasty, and it's a bit pricey but, imho, worth it.
