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.

Stopped in for breakfast last week. Pleasantly surprised. Didn't expect too much, as the exterior is rather inauspicious. It is located in a strip mall. My partner had an omelet, that she found fantastic. Made with classic French technique, where it is swirled instead of folded. Excellent! I had the croque Monsieur which was also very good. Extremely high quality... More

This place specializes in breakfast, but we were there for lunch and really liked it. They were running a wine special that day, Wednesday. My husband had a French dip sandwich on really good bread. He said it was great. I had sautéed spinach topped with salmon, delicious. This place has a bakery attached to it with authentic French bread... More

Comments including the word "great" seem pretty consistent when speaking about Ghini"s. Most of them are about breakfast. I'll add my comments about happy hour. It was a great experience. The atmosphere is quiet and civilized, with tables far enough apart where you can actually have a conversation with your friends. The happy hour menu is extensive and well explained.... More

On my last day in Tucson, I had breakfast at this intimate French cafe. I had Croque Madame with hash browns (which were fluffy and delicious) and a Vanilla Cream Coffee. The drink was a little too sweet for my taste but everything else was excellent. I liked the feel of the place, and the decor was shabby chic (I... More

Ghini's a comfy little spot that offers a hearty French style breakfasts. It's a sweet little place to sit and slowly wake up. It is adorably decorated and the staff is friendly and efficient. Love the food and atmosphere.

Flight problems meant we had to wait in Tucson an extra day before heading to Paris. By the time we left the long customer service line at the airport, we needed a good breakfast and immediately thought of Ghini's French Caffe. Though the restaurant does not remind me of the cafes I frequent in France, it serves very good food.... More
