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.

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

I had a great breakfast sandwich and cappuccino. We didn't have to wait for a table which I appreciate a lot at breakfast time. My only complaint was that the service was slower than I expected (but that is about on par for most Tucson restaurants).

My husband and I have had breakfast here a couple of times over the past few years. Food was OK and reasonably priced. No problem with the service. So last night we decided to try Ghini's for an early dinner. We will never go back. We made a reservation that was not needed because the restaurant was not crowded. The... More

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
