Ate lunch here after visiting the museum. Food was quick to come out and was excellent. Bagel sandwiches, wraps, soups, etc. Dining area was busy but still kept clean.

Just left this place. Told a couple of guys that they needed masks in the restaurant. They laughed. Not one employee said anything. I wonder why COVID cases are exploding. Never go back here again

This place was recommended by a local and we were very pleased. Great food, fresh ingredients. Healthy food on a budget for weary travelers. They have much more than bagels.

Ordered a sandwich and got it 35 minutes later. The kids working here were saying "sorry for the wait" to virtually every customer they served. Plenty of staff. Just poorly trained; no supervision. After the long wait, sandwich was mediocre.

It is very rare that I give a terrible rating. Heck, I rarely give a poor rating. We got two lunch bagel sandwiches - Rueben and ham-a-lot. The Rueben was a gooey mess. The ham was worse, totally soggy bagel. This in itself would rate...a poor. But the fact that we paid $9 for each, moves them into my dont-go-here terrible category.More

Ruby k’s is a must in Los Alamos. I so glad to see them making it even in crazy Covid conditions. If you are visiting it’s close to museums and Ashley pond. They will customize your sandwich. My favorite is chicken cordon blue specialized by...putting it on focaccia bread instead of a wrap.More

Great Cashew chicken salad on Focaccia and good social distancing. This was the perfect lunch stop on a day loop from Albuquerque.

Sesame bagel double toasted with green chili schmere. They got it right. Not sure How I could give it greater than average for an average order.

Casual. Counter ordering and food pick-up. Nice that if you eat in, the food is served on real (plastic) plates. Sandwich choices include bagel, bread, and wraps. My chicken (in a wrap) was juicy, but so juicy I had to watch out for drips. Cold...beverage choices include both fountain and bottles. It's popular, so sometimes it gets a little crowded inside. There are outside tables to use in nice weather (which was not when we visited in early February).More

I eat here about once a month, usually with my daughter and her four little children. The bagels are really good, especially with their flavored cream cheeses. This place is so centrally located that it is right in the heart of the Los Alamos walking...tour sites. However, the parking lot is frequently crowded. You can find parking in the lot behind the building on the south side, or across the street and southwest -- near Ashley Pond. Then you get in a little extra walking -- to help you walk off those delicious bagel calories, of course. If you're visiting Los Alamos, this is a great place for breakfast or lunch, and it's where the locals meet up to visit or to eat while running errands in town. You'll leave happy and satisfied.More

The variety of bagels and pastries is really unique, sandwiches and other quick foods are available. The drinks run the gamut of fresh fruit smoothies and lot's of different drinks make this a great place to visit for lunch or anytime of the day.

It is often hard to find really good bagels outside of the New York city area, but Ruby K's has real authentic bagels, as well as a good selection of salads, sandwiches and smoothies. My grandkids love the bagels (they are picky eaters) and enjoyed...a strawberry smoothie. My wife and I had the cashew chicken salad, which was very good and our daughter had the Sunrise sandwich which she like very much. This is great place for a quick breakfast or lunch and the service was quick and friendly.More

Stopped here for lunch after visiting the Manhattan National Historic Park, which is right across the street. The bagel sandwich options included some vegetarian fare and featured interesting and delicious ingredient combinations. Yum!

We have done large orders for Work Meetings. Coffee and Bagels and Spreads for morning meetings. Not exactly a school thing, but probably close.
