You won't regret your stop to this beautiful little cafe. I have owned and operated my fabulous little French cafe since 1992.

We come to thes restaurant quite often. Great place for traditional French food. Bistro cafe style dining. We love to go for breakfast & take the pups. They are always welcome on the covered patio areas. Ghinis brings water & cookies out for all your fur babies. Not the mention the food is devine! Many of the diners are frequently... More

Just had breakfast there today. They have posters everywhere to remind us that they have been voted #1 for many years. That might be so in Tucson but how would they fare in a more competitive town? They are so confident that they are #1 that they have lost any uniqueness to their food. For example, my omelette-loving husband said... More

Someone recommended the bacon pea salad, but my friend could only go at night, so the salad was almost $4 more than if I had gone at lunch. Hypothetically that would mean a much larger serving, but I was sad that it was not a very large serving and left me wanting more to eat. The salad was good, but... More

I have been there for lunch but enjoy the Friday night happy hour and bistro menu. It is billed as a French cafe and there are some French items such as the croque monsieur and escargot but it isn't all that French. Despite that the food is pretty good and tasty. The bistro menu offers appetizers, and reasonably priced entrees.... More

My wife picked this spot base on a best breaqkfast recommendatiuon in a book in our hotel room. I ordered eggs over easy, baguettes, orange slices, and coffee while my wife ordered a ham and cheese omlet, hash browns, biscuits, and iced tea. My eggs came out as over medium at best and the baguettes were burnt. My wife's omlet... More

Ghini's is where I would go if I had a dog who enjoys people (and whom people enjoy). Sitting on the outdoor patio, with cooling misters in summer, is a treat when there are a couple of well-behaved mutts sharing the space. Ghini's is touted as "French." Ok -- whatever. Most of the dishes I've tried are simple fare, fresh,... More

My wife and I had brunch here in the middle of a busy morning on a weekday. We first saw the adjacent bakery, and the croissants looked delicious. So we sat down, and ordered a croissant and coffee. We got the coffee in a few minutes and it was cold! They had to go back and make fresh coffee -... More

I just had their signature dish, Eggs Provencal. Très délicieux! I'm brushing up on my French for an upcoming trip and love the fact that they reserve a table (or two) on Thursday mornings for French speakers to chat with each other. The misters make dining outside in the heat of May enjoyable.

My husband and I love this breakfast spot. When friends visit from out of town they always make a point to go here. The food is fresh and full of flavor. It a fun patio and inside seating French eatery.
