We have been eating lunch at Rubi's since 2013 when ever we are in Great Barrington because we love the ambience, coffee and the grilled cheese on Pullman bread. Our recent lunch was a huge disappointment. We had grilled bread sandwiches with barely enough cheese to hold them together. No gooey melted delicious cheese. Somebody rearranged the dining room too... More

We picked up a bunch of cheese from Rubiner's (associated with Rubi's) around the corner and ordered wine and bread to top it off. Great warmth in the place, very charming. Sit outside or in the a/c inside. Wine selection by the glass is limited, albeit still very good.

This is a must visit place, if you are looking for a coffee shop in Great Barrington. We stopped in for lunch and their sandwiches are to die for. My husband had a ham and cheese sandwich, and I had an egg and cheese. These savory sandwiches were made with fresh made bread that was grilled crispy and buttery. It... More

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
