“Good food in a little town, plus they're open,”
Review of Cafe Ruch

Cafe Ruch

Restaurant details
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Cafe Ruch is just about the only place to eat in the small town of Ruch. But that's ok because it's good. We ate here out of necessity as the 2 places serving food in nearby Applegate were closed and we were too hungry to drive to Jacksonville. Plus we found out from the Cafe Ruch folks that the restaurant at McKee Bridge is also closed. So, if you're in the Applegate in the afternoon and you need food Cafe Ruch is the place.

The food was good and made fresh. I had the meatball sub and it was clearly made with homemade meatballs and fresh bread. Prices are also quite reasonable. And Cafe Ruch is also a convenience store so get lunch and grab a candy bar for the road.

We have been here many times and we always love the food and atmosphere. Very casual, like an old diner feel, and the food is wonderful. Freshly prepared, lots of weekday specials to keep you coming back. They have a whole refrigerator of beers and wine and such to buy, along with 3-4 local beers on tap. We highly recommend the pastrami, and the gyro. Lots of meat in their sandwiches and lots of fun time along the way. Great place to stop when wine tasting to get a break from the normal fare.
