Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I am a vegetarian and ordered a cheese and tomato toasted sandwich, what l got was ham cheese and tomato sandwich. So l told the waiter that l was vegetarian and l don’t eat meat, the waiter took my sandwich back to kitchen and came...back out and delivered the sandwich without ham. They didn’t cook new sandwich as it came out one or two minutes later. Wasn’t happy as l have been there plenty of times. So vegetarians beware .More

Had a delicious cappuccino. The barista today had serious skills! Love this cafe. Also, I didn’t know ham cheese and tomato toasted sandwich could taste so good :-)

Waited over 30 minutes for a takeaway coffee, would have been faster to order from Uber Eats. The cafe is understaffed with the chef having to deliver food and serve tables (very hygienic).

Breakfast for two sitting on the balcony in the sun. Very good poached eggs with bacon, and a huge “Big Breakfast”. A great place to sit back and enjoy a leisurely breakfast whilst watching the never-ending parade of joggers and cyclists do their thing. PS....Great coffee (and 3 choices of mug size)More

Great brekky despite the pouring rain and rough seas. Friendly welcome, fantastic views and a very good bacon roll with hash browns and my wife loved her eggs Benedict. Nice coffee too, going back tomorrow!

Went to Ruby's for an afternoon drive with family. The food was filling and arrived shortly after we ordered. The staff were pleasant and the owner took interest in our group and was very friendly. Great location with ocean views. We will be back.

Casual coffee and meals right on the coastal cycle way with beach views and cool breezes. Sit under cover or outside.

You walk from the carpark across a little bridge to Ruby's. It's a cute beachside cafe with a wide verandah across the front. Quick service and lovely staff. Food is good and very reasonably priced.

I only just spotted your question. I am not the owner. I wrote a review of Ruby's. Given there is an outside eating area adjacent to the beach it seems ideal for two well behaved dogs. I have two dogs and would not hesitate... More
