Description: Ghini's is a restaurant fueled by love and passion, which is evident with every morsel that hits your lips. A quaint little cafe that serves Breakfast, Lunch and Tapas, also has a full service and amazing French Bakery attached. Ghini's has always been dog friendly since its inception in 1992, as it is done in France. Ghini's has a very diverse menu and can accommodate every culinary whimsy. A boutique wine list, all imported, is the icing on the cake! Ghini's has won many culinary awards of excellence and has been written up in papers, locally, nationwide, world wide, winning gold awards for best Breakfast, best Cafe, best Bistro, & best French. You won't regret your stop to this beautiful little cafe. I have owned and operated my fabulous little French cafe since 1992. We make every item from scratch, purchase locally and support our local economy. I love my work, my staff and my clients.

Try the crepes. Very busy. Food is excellent. Hone fries are amazing! We went there because we couldn't get into Prep and pastry in Tuscon and we all found the food very good.

This French cafe only serves dinner once a week on Friday's and it is well worth the wait! The food and service is outstanding while being reasonably priced. We had four people in our party and we all ordered different appetizers, salads, soups, entrees and deserts and everything was terrific. Would highly recommend this cafe for dinner!

We've been looking for great breakfast places in Tucson. Our experience (on New Year's Day, no less) at Ghini's was "WOW". The food was outstanding and luscious. I enjoyed the Croque Madame, while my wife had scrambled eggs. Now, scrambled eggs are usually not that different from restaurant to restaurant... but these were! They were basted and the taste was... More

I've generally only eaten breakfasts at Ghini's so obviously can't comment on their other menu choices. They have a number of very tasty breakfast choices, with some "signature" type dishes that feature their French influence. One possibly unlikely item on the breakfast menu is biscuits with gravy. The owner states on the menu "I used to live in Kentucky, I... More

I visited Ghini's Caffe for the first time this week and had an excellent experience. The food and coffee were great and fresh. It was the first time I have been able to get a Cafe con Leche on this side of the country (very popular in Florida) and it was really good. The service was superior. An addition to... More

It's very good food. Relaxing on the outside. Corelia is a gem! Sunday morning is nice and mellow. Friday night has good dinners.

Not known to everyone and in a less than glamorous setting Ghinnis is worth finding. On Fridays there are special mussels each week, innovative beverages and always a great meal.

The croque madam sandwich is a must eat...decadent with its beschemel sauce and sunny egg. The Garden of Eatin sandwich was just okay. The avo was spare and barely there. The green chilis were like those diced ones from a can and even more rare than the avos. Like to see more avo and strips of hatch green chili.

I've been going to Ghini's occasionally for lunch during the past 10 years and can always count on getting good sandwiches and salads. There are myriad offerings on the large menu so it is often difficult to make a selection. Portions tend to be large so I sometimes choose a half sandwich rather than a whole one. Today, I went...

Located just off of Campbell on Prince, this bakery makes mouth watering desserts, but wait a second...they have a very nice sandwich cafe with tempting roasted garlic salads and other lunch fare. Popular with the locals as a mid-way rendezvous spot with outdoor seating and inside lunch room. Service provided by helpful staff that are eager to please. Give it... More
