The best place in Leicester for a breakfast cob, my favourite is bacon, mushroom and tomato, its a lovely local sandwich bar.

We are regulars at the weekend - Gilly’s breakfast cobs / baguettes are a firm family favourite. All cooked fresh by friendly staff while we wait (takeaway). A thriving local business that looks after customers very well. Happily recommend!

Its so great to have Gillys around the corner. Went there everyday when my kitchen was being installed and my kids loved it. Keep going back as great staff and food.

Went here for lunch yesterday and it was a great place. My pannini was gorgeous and my mates omelette looked well tastey. Good service and very reasonable prices

Lovely food, nice friendly staff, especially like the panninis and pulled pork burger, and not too expensive either
