I tell people about Gigi's all the time - super cute, neighborhood cafe with the best reuben and friendly staff. That said, both times I've ordered the reuben on gluten free bread it arrived on regular. I have celiac so this is quite a problem.

I noticed before taking a bite the first time and they remade it super fast and gave me a GF cookie for my troubles. But today, I was deep in conversation w/my friend when it arrived and I was super hungry and just ate the whole thing before realizing "hey wait, that was marble bread" and asking the guy if it was GF - ummmmm, no. They were apologetic and refunded my meal but truly, it's not acceptable. At all. And really, refunding my $15 doesn't compensate for the sickness that will be following.

So all you gluten-lovers you should totally keep going. For those that are celiac, ask and ask again and assume nothing.

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

We were looking for a decent spot to have brunch on a busy Sunday morning and were driving around to find a place with least wait time. We saw Gigi's from cross the street from Our Kitchen, which was full with uncertain wait time. We Reluctantly went in and order for 4 of us: 2 cheese burgers, Mushroom Goat cheese Scrambler and quiche. All our food tasted amazing, had fresh ingredients and had perfect size portions. We also grab some sweets while we were there. Everything was tasty. We will definitely go there again during our next visit to Minneapolis.
