My iced latte was just perfect...the wait a bit in this busy funky quintessential New England cafe. Had to ask for napkins, straws and sleeves for the hot coffee, so not quite on top of things but friendly. Menu looked terrific, but we already had eaten lunch, but this was a nice way to complete our meal.

An informal small restaurant where you preorder at the bar and then settle down at small tables (inside and out) and wait for delivery. Excellent grilled cheese sandwiches, soups, Cubanos,and some vegetarian offerings. Great coffee and teas. A good place for pre or post movie bites since the restaurant is just across the way from the Triplex cinema.

Rubi's coffee is great and their grilled cheese sandwich is amazing but the last three times I was in there, they were understaffed and we waited a very long time for our coffee.

The food is pretty good, especially the grilled cheese. But the service can be slow and the people are not always pleasant. Still a wonderful little coffee shop. The sandwiches are a little pricey because they use high quality cheeses.

We love Rubiners. We're on their email list and feel sad when we get an update and we're not in GB. But before we stock up on cheese and charcuterie we head around back and hope for the best. The snacks at Rubis are really terrific. A quartino and sandwich or cheese is so good after a long drive. Delicious... More

Been going to Rubiner's for years but never realized there was a café around back until this weekend. Rubi's has a small counter for ordering coffee, drinks, cakes, and a menu of a few specials. I ordered the Rubiner- a grilled Reuben sandwich made with their house made corned beef wow. It was the best Reuben I've ever had. And... More

Rubi's offers good food (some of the sandwiches were very good), however it's a small place that can get busy and overwhelm the small kitchen and staff. We found ourselves in such a situation, wanting lunch before heading to a movie at the nearby theater, and unaware that it would take 25 minutes for our order of sandwiches to arrive... More

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.
