We made a trip to Waltham, MA from Rochester, NY and stopped here going and coming. It is worth getting off the Mass Pike and coming down here for the grilled cheese sandwiches. There are several to choose from. We tried 2 different ones this...More

I’ve been visiting Great Barrington for years and, every trip, I make it a point to get to Rubi’s. Nestled behind Rubiner’s on Main St., this is a hidden gem you could walk right by. Small coffeehouse vibes are abundant at Rubi’s, where a wall...More

The worst experience I’ve had in Great Barrington in decades, the previous bad experience was in 2006. Guess where? Rubiner’s Cheesemongers, run by the same person. After seeing a great movie that took place in Italy, and walking out of the theater transformed, we decided...More

An awful place. One of the worst experiences I ever had. I came out of a great movie and in for a coffee only to be mocked for asking for Stevia. Was rudely told ‘we only have natural sweeteners, which was so bogus, because Stevia...More

Good fare, but some of the hipsters behind the counter often can't be bothered to get food out in reasonable time...

Cute place and friendly staff, but I'm an Italian-roast kind of coffee drinker and they use beans with a different roasting process. All a matter of preference. Some people love that variety but I find it grassy.

The latte was nice. The lemons for the lemonade were cut right after the order. The place has an atmosphere, a bit on the cold side, but still nice.

Be patient. Coffees made by hand and on the weekday morning we visited only one person was a maker. She was most unhurried and attentive to local regulars. The coffee was delicious if very very pricey. But coffee elsewhere is not anywhere near as good....More
