Ruby’s is an artisan coffee roastery, producing small batches of high quality coffee beans, achieving a smooth, flavorful full-bodied cup of coffee.

Ruby’s owners Debbie Segal and Sherry Bloom became good friends growing up in Los Angeles where they lived on the same street and went to the same school. Even though their mothers didn't drink gourmet coffee, both homes always had the coffee pot on, with an open invitation to friends and family to drop in for a hot cup, along with the ever present bite to eat.


Upon moving to Berkeley, Debbie and Sherry both got hooked on good coffee and good food, and between them have over 30 years experience in the business.

Just around the corner,
There's a rainbow in the sky.
So let's have another cup o' coffee
And let's have another piece of pie.

—Irving Berlin, 1932
