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.

I Guess they don't need any customers!

Not very customer friendly at 6am. Although they do not open until 6:30am, they could be more acommodating and much nicer when they send customers on their way. At least two customers were turned away in a not so customer oriented fashion. I wasn't even allowed to sit outside and wait on their... read more

I met some friends for breakfast at Ghini's. I asked the waiter if I could substitute corn tortillas for toast because I am highly allergic to wheat/gluten. He told me that they did not have corn tortillas and they did not have gluten free bread. I therefore asked that there be no bread with my breakfast. All the guests at... More

Located in a strip mall midtown, Ghini's is a delightful surprise! Be prepared to wait for a table on weekend mornings but know it will be well worth it. The French toast is amazing. All of the egg dishes are cooked to perfection. As an added treat, they also serve mimosas! On the weekends they have live music, and rumor... More

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

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

AMAZING food, service, portions and bakery. It's a bit pricey but well worth the fun, delicious combinations. GREAT breakfast / brunch options and the bakery is wonderful too !!

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
