A colleague and I went for brunch and to catch up. No problem getting a table on the patio - perfect! Omelets were ordered and as always done to perfection, large portions and fabulous specialty coffees.

We were looking for a new place to go for lunch, and decided to give Ghini's a try. We arrived and saw the "please seat yourself" sign. That's fine, except all of the empty tables were filled with dirty dishes. After a few minutes, one of the tables was cleared and we were able to be seated. We waited about... More

I am very sorry you didn't have a great meal at Ghini's, that is certainly not our goal. We have successfully been in business since 1992, happily serving our locals and visitors alike. I have spoken to our staff about taking more time at tables and I am sorry he didn't get to spend more time with you, it isn't... More

When I was little, I thought of of French food restaurants as stuffy, smug places. Ghini's is as wonderfully unpretentious as it is delicious! I like the grownup cheese sandwich and almost anything on the breakfast menu. You can eat inside when it's 120 degrees in Tucson or catch a breeze on the dod-friendly patio. Definitely worth visiting over and... More

When looking for a Sunday morning brunch place I found Ghini's with TripAdvisor. Having spent five weeks in France last fall, we thought this would be a reminder of that wonderful time. We were not disappointed! Located in a strip mall at the corner of Prince and Campbell, the French Caffe was delightful. Seating inside or at outside tables is... More

This casual French cafe will transport you 5000 miles to the Left Bank with real croissant, baguette and properly done eggs. What a nice contrast in cuisine for a breakfast meal in a very classy setting.

Everything about this restaurant is a 10. The ambiance with it's outdoor patio, patisserie, beautiful and friendly staff, and of course the food. I had the Forestier omelette (with spinach, feta, mushrooms and garlic...oh yah, lots of garlic). My husband had the western omelette. So delicious. So fresh tasting.

I ordered Croquet Madame, to try something different. My husband had an omelette. Both were delicious! Coffee is strong. Next time I will try cafe au lait. Croquet Madame had a thin layer of French bread with slices of ham on top. This was then covered with a very tasty cheese sauce. On top of that, was a perfectly cooked... More

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.
