Gigi's Cafe

822 W. 36th St. Minneapolis, MN 55408 | Uptown/ Eat Street | 612-825-0818

Location Description:

The best of the coffeeshops-with-benefits on the south side, Gigi's has a nice wine list, cheerful counter help, and a large dining area with lots of big wooden tables on which to spread out your architect's plans, hold a knitting seminar, or balance your baby in her car seat. Gigi's offers an ever-changing array of home-cooked goodies, like rib-sticking garbanzo and turkey chili, a hearty spinach lasagna, or coffeecakes of such crumble-bedecked allure that you might be tempted to run away from home and conduct the remainder of your affairs from Gigi's.
