I've become a regular at Cafe Ruby for breakfast, their early bird breakfast is my absolute favorite, different and delicious. Also love that they only serve free range eggs and the restaurant is located on a beautiful farm. I prefer their breakfasts over lunch and highly recommend it for a family or friends outing.

Refused to take reservation. Makes it impossible to visit with elderly people without knowing you will get a table. We were shown the door, not even offered the opportunity to wait for 1st available table. Borderline rude!

Beautiful wine tasting, spending time with friends, breakfast, cheese platter and great service venue. The restaurant does not offer a lot of options, but ALL the options are lovely. Service friendly and great. There is plenty space for little people and a chicken and dogs. Worth a try.

It was our first time trying Cafe Ruby, and we were pleasantly surprised! We had the poached eggs and french toast; both were absolutely delicious! They have a cosy and beautifully decorated indoor area for those cold winter mornings as well as a lovely outdoor area for the sunny days.

We tried this restaurant after the wine tasting and platter at the winery. The menu is not elaborate and has a few good options for mains as well as dessert. We did not have mains but headed straight for sweet desserts and coffee...very enjoyable!! Good service.
