WELCOME TO KNEADING RUBY

Nestled in the heart of Wollongong and part of the town’s cheery seaside dining scene is Kneading Ruby on Crown Lane. Imposing from the outside with high brick walls, inside is unassumingly elegant, with lofty ceilings giving an airy feel to pair with delicate vines draped across timber ceiling beams and polished floors.  

Naturally lit during the day for a breezy café feel and cast under a soft glow for more ambient evening dining, Kneading Ruby can cater to a range of occasions and is popular for large groups looking to share a selection of tasty wood-fired pizzas and bespoke dishes of seasonal produce.

Perhaps find tempting starters like tuna crudo, snow peas, orange, tarragon oil and chervil, before lamb shoulder, puttanesca, olives and sides of seasonal vegetables and kipfler potatoes.
