Three of us had breakfast at Ghini's today. It's a casual place nicely decorated with a few tables outside. They have a good authentic French bakery. I had the best croque madame of my life and I've eaten many in France. My wife had the...More

Thank you so very much for the kind words! We pride ourselves on our scratch menu and quality ingredients. We have made several requests to our landlord to repair the fencing, and replacing patio tables and chairs is on our loooong list of things to...More

My daughter and I stopped in on a whim. The exterior is nothing special in a strip mall. The service was fast, friendly and helpful. We ordered the pasta with prosciutto, mushrooms and parmesan. It was delicious and the portions were large enough to share....More

Had the Florentine Croque Madame. Hadn't ever tried it, it was excellent. The waiters were busy but still stopped by to check on us. Six retired guys out for lunch. "Light" on decor, good food; with a try!

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...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...More

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.
