Started off our Sunday with a breakfast at this classic spot. Cinnamon French toast is very rich but delicious. Great atmosphere for a slow start to the day.

You'll enjoy the burgers, fries, and milk shakes. The prices are low plus there's a great view of the Pacific Ocean.

My sweet grandson (age 17) want to "take me out to dinner" at one of his favorite places. He gave me the choice of Cheesecake Factory or Ruby's Diner and I immediately chose the later. As I am a lover of spicy food, the first thing that jumped off Ruby's menu was their Sriracha burger. Described with pepper jack cheese,... More

Had breakfast here while staying in a hotel across the street. Wait staff was pleasant; food was adequate for the price. Would come again.

My new favourite place to eat! I ate there 3 times in a week while in Cali and once in an airport. Great service, cute decor and uniforms and the food was great! All at average prices. Sadly I did not try there shakes but I heard they're very yummy.

We ate breakfast at this Ruby's Diner and had a wonderful experience. The food was very good, the restaurant was fun, including vintage retro furnishings, and located right next to the coast. There was plenty of parking ($1 with validation) and easy access. And the beignets were awesome!

We went here as it was just across the road from our hotel. It was very yummy with enough choice you'd expect from a diner. The staff seemed quite busy and wasn't overly busy when we went in at 9am. We sat outside which was lovely.

We happened to go on their anniversary so they were celebrating by selling a burger/fries for only $2.99. Very good. Breakfasts there are quite good, too.

Headed into Ruby's after a bike ride up the coast to the airport and back. Starving and thirsty settled for a patti melt and club soda. Food was solid but not exceptional but service was great. More of a theme diner than neighbourhood place but pretty good all the same. Reasonable prices and only 5 minutes walk to the hotel.

Okay, it was Ruby's birthday so they had their yearly special (A Cheeseburger & Fries for $2.99). We got there right as the special was starting and were a bit surprised that the service was a bit slow, but the taste of the burger made it worth the wait. Prices have gone up on most everything (No big surprise there),... More
