“Great all natural food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2013 via mobile

I have been eating at gigi's cafe for a few months now. I have been eating gluten free for over a year now and am always happy to find good places to eat that have gluten free options for me. They have great food and salads gf free breads and buns. You can add a small greens salad to any sandwich for a little extra. I highly recommend the pulled pork sandwich one of the better ones I've had.

“Excellent Food at a Reasonable Price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

A bistro deli/coffee shop, Gigi's serves delicious food and includes vegan and organic selections. The staff, though not all knowledgeable about the food, is friendly and courteous. Everything I've tried has been yummy. I appreciate not having to dress up and spend a lot of money while in Minneapolis. Highly recommend Gigi's.

“nice outside but that is the only thin nice”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2013

The cashier did not know about the food at all!! When I asked about a sandwich she said, her Grandma made It when she was little and it was good. It was not!

I ordered a "pocket" sandwich, it was just one slice of thick bread cut down about 2 inches with a tiny bit of filling. The bread was so soggy, it fell apart right away.

I told the manager and he did give me another sandwich but I will not be going back!

Gigi's cafe serves some of best food in town. A friendly, bistro-type restaurant and coffee shop, I have loved everything on their menu. They also have a nice selection for vegetarians and vegans. Their spinach walnut burger is one of my favorite dishes everywhere! The staff is friendly and casual, the ambiance is lovely, and they have an impressive selections of beer and wine. Enjoy!

“Get ready to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2013

If you don't want good food, if you don't want a big sandwich, and if you don't want the neat atmosphere of a small cafe, then don't go to Gigi's. If you want all of those, this is a place to visit. Gigi's is not on the main route to anywhere, but plug it into your GIS and make it a point to have lunch at this neat, neighborhood cafe. From organic to vagan to good 'ol burgers, Gigi's has something you will enjoy. Their friendly staff tops off the perfect lunch spot.
