The atmosphere here fails to remind me of any cafe that I've visited on my regular visits to France. We went recently for brunch at 2 p.m. and no one greeted or even acknowledged us. Instead, a big welcome sign inside advised customers to sit...More

When one goes to a place billed as a French cafe, one expects a touch of France. You will not get that at Ghini's. Not even close. First, the place was filthy. It did not bode well for the meal. I should have walked back...More

I was really disappointed with my dinner. The escargots were served with what I assume were canned artichoke hearts and parmesan. That unusual combination masked the delicate flavor of the escargots and made the dish way too salty. Next, I got the $20 Beef Bourguignon...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.
