Good Coffee!

We prefer medium roast, so preferred Rubi's over Fuel in Great Barrington. The coffee tasted freshly roasted, and they drew a good espresso and Americano. The sandwiches looked good but we did not try them. We keep going back when we visit Great Barrington.

I love this place. Great coffee, well made. The hot sandwiches are wonderful, grilled on tasty bread with a wonderful selection of cheeses. A great place to hang out, nibble, read, and consume caffeine.

Walked in and there was no line, only a couple customers in the place already served. Ordered a couple lattes and a cold sandwich. Lattes were made quickly and were delicious. As we were almost finished with them we were still waiting for our sandwich. We noticed that the guy responsible for making it was just standing there, staring out... More

Best for the coffee and tea, the food is overpriced. Some OK outside seating, and a large, tidy unisex toilet complement the place. The staff does not seem like it wants to be there, preferring to dream better careers.

You can't beat the quaint atmosphere of Rubi's. They have a great breakfast sandwich and variety of teas and coffees. It's a great place to meet a friend for breakfast. Simple menu.

I had a delicious grilled cheese for $6! Great coffee and espresso. Many locals. Free WiFi. Somebody there must like 50's music which played in the background. Excellent Value. It's tucked away behind the main street.

Great coffee, fun space, wonderful treats and sandwiches. Great spot to go to before or after a movie, just across the parking lot.

Chose this for lunch - ordered coffee and two sandwiches. Ordering took a little while as the person dealing with this didn't know answer to our questions and had to keep checking with colleagues. Partner picked up coffee (which he reported to be very good) and we waited for our sandwiches. After a while it transpired that our order had... More

Lunch the other day. Had the wild mushroom soup with bread (7.50) Excellent taste. Wife had grilled cheese which cost $9.00. Menu on wall hard to read. Dark inside. Coffee smells throughout place.The $9.00 sandwich had less cheese than a page from a newspaper. Really? Ate outside with the bees and many tourists. Slow service. Staff somewhat confused as to...
