As anyone who has been out to the gem fields knows, places to eat here are limited. However, this cafe offers decent food and friendly service and it's nice to sit out on the verandah and check out the locals and tourists. They do a...More

My son says they have the best chocolate milkshakes. The staff are so friendly. It is lovely to sit on the verandah overlooking the surrounding area. They even had some gluten free options.

Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at the Rubyvale Cafe, so much so we went back the next night. Rack of Lamb first night and Duck and orange sauce the second. Both beautifully cooked and friendly service. Highly recommended.

Not being in the market for buying anything. Although my 15 year old daughter wants me to come back for a birthday present... The staff gave great insight into the process and woes and excitement of being a sapphire miner. Cafe was good too.

Stopped in for a drink after visiting the sapphire mine. Loved the banter with the staff, chips are that long! Fabulous milkshake and thick shake. Lots of flavour and very fluffy. Chips hot, crisp and crunchy. And just the right size. Great place to stop.

On our way North, we stopped in for lunch. As soon as I walked in, I knew I was not staying. It felt dark, cold and uninviting. There was very little food on display showing what they had to offer and the atmosphere was not...More
