Gigi's has gotten back to its previous excellent level. I had a biscuit with egg, cheese and bacon. The biscuit baked in-house was delicious. Our only complaint is the $1 charge for a coffee refill but it's such a great place to meet and eat that that's a small issue.

I noticed before taking a bite the first time and they remade it super fast... 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 Reluctantly went in and order for 4 of us: 2 cheese burgers, Mushroom Goat cheese... More

I visited this place twice on my visit to Minneapolis. Once for lunch and once for breakfast. On both occasions, the food was very good and would highly recommend it.
