This venue offers a variety of entree choices. We were there about 11:30 & you could order off the breakfast or lunch menu. You order at the counter and they bring the food to you. We opted to sit outside at their sidewalk tables which...More

Nice spot for breakfast. Probably just as good for lunch and dinner but can only speak about my experience for breakfast. Fresh homemade muffins and scones. Even house made jam for your toast. Scrambled eggs done just the way I like them. Fully cooked, but...More

The spinach/feta/tomato scramble was really good. Nice location and atmosphere. Would like an option for bottomless cup of coffee (or at least a refill).

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....More

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...More

A coffee shop by day, a dinner joint by night, Gigi’s in south Minneapolis is a home away from home for many locals. Gigi’s makes everything from scratch using locally farmed and organic ingredients. You can hang out and have coffee and a scone, or come in for dinner and a bottle of wine. We serve breakfast until 3 p.m., and happy hour runs from 3 to 6 p.m. daily. Gigi’s buys only sustainably farmed meats and is committed to respecting our oceans through our membership in the Minnesota Zoo Fish Smart program. Plus, Gigi’s serves shade-grown, organic coffee purchased directly from farmers and roasted right here in Minneapolis by B & W Specialty Coffee.
