Ruby Alexander’s first thought when opening up a café was how to give the community a place to gather and spend time together.
Since the opening in 2005, Ruby K’s has done just that.
“It has become a common staple in Los Alamos,” Alexander said. “It is a place where there is great food, great service and the perfect spot to hang out.”
Located in downtown Los Alamos, its central location is ideal, Alexander said.
Alexander has lived in Los Alamos for 28 years.
With a menu consisting of bagels, sandwiches, desserts and the well-received smoothie, the plan is to branch out.
Currently, Ruby K’s offers cupcakes, cake pops and mini pies, which according to Alexander, are flying off the shelves. Moreover, she wants to expand the business to offer more catering — luncheon-based items, such as appetizers, mini sandwich platters, fruit and veggie platters and other finger foods for office parties, gatherings and even weddings. Ruby K’s makes their sandwiches with homemade breads.
Alexander said she wants to offer items for teens, which can allow them to get together with their friends after school.
