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.

Good food with a French flair.

Consistantly good quality and preparation, varied offerings, and a French flavor to it all. Nice seating area outside. Often crowded because it is popular.

I thought I had reviewed Ghini's long ago, since I have been coming here ever since it opened. I always get the Eggs Provençale for breakfast and sometimes for lunch, the tuna salad is terrific but the very best thing about Ghini's is the Friday Night Bistro Menu and Wine List (you can compose your own flight of three wines!!!)....

First time here so was not aware that you meed to put your name on a wait list. We waited in the next door bakery only later to be told there was a sign up in the restaurant. Once seated we had several servers assisting us. Food was good and lots to choose from that is not standard "diner food".... More

Had breakfast at this French restaurant with bakery attached. We were seated promptly and enjoyed checking out the menu which offered many choices. Service was a plus, however, the atmosphere was better than the quality of the food which was mediocre. I'd probably suggest French toast or crepes rather than other choices for breakfast.

Because we wanted to love it! We had heard great things about Ghini's, that it was a lovely French type bistro. I will say they did try and did some lovely things to the decor. We were seated in 6 minutes at a table and the server brought our coffee very soon after seated. But, our food didn't come for... More

We had a large group for breakfast. The service was very good and everyone in our party enjoyed their meal. There is quite a variety to choose from and a bakery onsite to take something tasty away.

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
