Cute spot and delicious iced lattes

Loved the iced lattes at Rubi's - went back 2 days in a row - staff was very friendly as well and i would definitely make this my regular coffee shop if i lived in GB.

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.

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

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.

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.
