A sweet little gem tucked in a mostly residential area. Generous sized sandwich and very delicious. Indoor and outdoor seating, very friendly staff.

I visited this place twice on my visit to Minneapolis. Once for lunch and once for breakfast. On both occasions, the food was very good and would highly recommend it.

I had the Reuben. They make their corned beef in house and it is do die for. My girlfriend had their turkey and avocado and said it was wonderful. They are a short walk/drive from Lake Calhoun. Outdoor patio. Beers by the bottle/can. Lots of indoor seating.

Outstanding food: our party enjoyed the spinach/walnut burger (the best version of a veggie burger I have ever had), broccoli/cheddar scramble, beet salad, and bean.potato soup, along with a chai latte, an iced tea, and a cappuccino. Many other great choices on the menu, some vegetarian and several vegan. Pleasant dining area (although could do without the music, which with... More

Had breakfast here with a friend. I ordered corned beef hash and it was the best hash I've been able to find here in the twin cities. I'm originally from Southern California where you can find great hash in almost any deli or diner. I've been here for five years and my quest for great hash has finally ended. The... More

Stopped in for a late breakfast (although they also have lunch items that sound delicious). They have a full coffee menu, along with beer, wine and flavored iced teas. Great variety on the breakfast and lunch menu. Mostly soup, sandwich and salad type items for lunch. Service was very friendly, and the food came out quick. I had a Braised... More

Description
Gigi's is a neighborhood place where you're welcome to hang out and have coffee & a scone, or to come in for dinner and a bottle of wine. Feel free to have a work meeting here or do your homework, the wireless is always on! At Gigi's we make everything from scratch using as many local ingredients as possible. Gigi's buys only sustainably farmed meats and is committed to respecting our oceans through our membership in the Minnesota Zoo Fish Smart program.

Gigi's coffee is purchased directly from farmers, is shade grown and organic, and roasted right here in Minneapolis by B & W Specialty Coffee.

Wednesdays are pizza night-we're making special pizzas, salads, and offering beer & wine specials.
