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

Sat by the fire. Grilled cheese is to die for! Great selection of sandwiches and other featuring Rubiner's amazing cheeses. Reasonable pricing.

Everything about our lunch experience here was horrible. The employee who took our order was beyond indifferent. It took more than 35 minutes to make and serve one tuna melt sandwich. The tables were dirty and paint was peeling off the walls.

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,...More

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...More
