“Definitely a cut above the Subway down the street!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

There aren't an abundance of dining spots in Los Alamos and many are open only limited hours. We stumbled into town around 2:30pm on a Saturday, starving after a morning of hiking and looking for a good local spot. The Visitors Center suggested nearby Ruby K's (RK).

The restaurant, next to Starbucks in a strip center, reminds one of the Einstein Bros. bagel chain in many ways. Showcase baskets of available fresh bagels start the order line along with a case of refrigerated drinks. The The menu offers a wide variety of fresh bagels and cream cheeses. It also includes a good variety of hot and cold sandwiches, paninis, wraps and made-to-order options with a choice of side. All provided generous portions of quality meat and cheese I could manage only 1/2 of a bagel sandwich. There are also a few soup and salad options, smoothies, pastries, breakfast sandwiches, and a kids menu.

The prices run about $1 higher than the nearby Subway, but the quality is well worth it. The huge chocolate croissant was a bargain at about $2.50. An excellent lunch option.

Good food and it was made quickly. Prices seemed a little expensive. Easy access with lots of parking.

“Awesome local Cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2012

Ruby K's is a family run Cafe which serves homemade bagels, sandwiches, soups and more. Everything there is delish, but my fav is their onion bagel with vegetable cream cheese. For lunch don't miss their chicken salad...I have even taken a container of it home to share with my hubby. A great place to sip one of their smoothies while enjoying lunch.

“Lunch Time Hot Spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2012

Seemed like the hot spot in town when we were looking for a place to eat lunch. Sandwiches were great. They had lots of varieties of bagels, bread, focaccia options and some unique options. You could also build you own sandwich. Clean, quick, and tasty
