The place serves bagels, sandwiches, and our bakery products. They have a range of cream cheeses which all taste very good. If you are a New York/New Jersey Bagel expert, this is not the place for you - the schmer is too thin and the bagel doesn't quite taste the same (which I think is related to altitude). However this is Los Alamos and for this town (and maybe in NM) it is the best.

The service is great; the staff are always friendly and happy to accommodate my requests.

I have always and will always love Ruby Kays, but their new cupcakes are just quite frankly- really bad.
They have a pretty presentation but have the consistency of dry bread. Worst cake I've ever bit into.

Other than that, the bagels are always the best!

Great place for a snack. Very friendly staff and good value food. It can a get a little busy at lunchtime though. Great location in the centre of town too.

Sadly, this is not my first visit to this location, but lack of alternatives when you have a 30 minute lunch kept me coming back.
My first bad visit, waited with other customers, including a child picking her nose. Unfortunately, when my sandwich was called, that same child picked up my sandwich before I could get to the counter, opened it, gave it back to the server, who then gave it to me. I would have asked them to remake it (it should have been remade in the first place), but hesitated to make an issue and embarrass the mother. What I refer to as the "booger bagel" was discarded the moment I left the building.
Months later, I ordered a soup & chicken foccacia sandwich, only to find (through a very painful bite), the sharp end of a toothpick iin the chicken.
Lastly, never expect the soups listed on the board to actually be available. Repeatedly, I have ordered and paid, only to have the staff tell me the soup I ordered is not what is being served today. No apologies.
The concept of this restaurant is a winner, but in reality...the food and staff repeatedly miss the mark.

Friendly staff. The service can be just a little bit slow but when the staff is friendly waiting isn’t so irritating. They make good, satisfying sandwiches. I LOVE Reuben sandwiches but rarely find a really good one. Ruby K’s Reuben is really good.
