Gigi's has a great date night special...two entrees, two salads, and two desserts for something like $30. The menu is limited to a few choices, but all are delicious. I came here with a friend, and were able to get the date night special without any funny looks. Really cute and romantic, with interesting art on the walls, and great... More

Stopped for a quick lunch with my sister, and have stopped by for coffee before on visits to Minneapolis. I had a cup of lamb meatball soup - it was enough for a meal - full of chickpeas (soft and yummy) and lots of meatballs. My sister had the tomato-carrot curry soup (good!) and half a tuna sandwich - she... More

A bistro deli/coffee shop, Gigi's serves delicious food and includes vegan and organic selections. The staff, though not all knowledgeable about the food, is friendly and courteous. Everything I've tried has been yummy. I appreciate not having to dress up and spend a lot of money while in Minneapolis. Highly recommend Gigi's.

The cashier did not know about the food at all!! When I asked about a sandwich she said, her Grandma made It when she was little and it was good. It was not! I ordered a "pocket" sandwich, it was just one slice of thick bread cut down about 2 inches with a tiny bit of filling. The bread was... More

Their spinach walnut burger is one of my favorite dishes everywhere! The staff is friendly and casual, the ambiance is lovely, and they have an impressive selections... More

If you don't want good food, if you don't want a big sandwich, and if you don't want the neat atmosphere of a small cafe, then don't go to Gigi's. If you want all of those, this is a place to visit. Gigi's is not on the main route to anywhere, but plug it into your GIS and make it... More

But wow, the food all looked spectacular. We were there for church a couple blocks away and were early, so we wandered. What a find. To live in this neighborhood and have access to this place would be great.
