Gillies is probably the best restaurant in Blacksburg which always offers high quality food, made fresh. Perfect for lunch or breakfast. I love their juices and most of the items that I have tried are very tasty! It often offers music nights too.

Visited recently on a Saturday morning. Had to wait approximately 20 minutes for a table for two at around 10:30AM. We enjoyed our selections. Portions are generous. Something on the menu for everyone. Good service, will return.

I have primarily eaten breakfast at Gillie's, and it's always been very good. Plan on it being crowded unless you get there early.

Came here on a Sunday morning around 9am and the place was already packed but we only had to wait about 10 minutes for a table for four. Breakfast menu is your usual standard fare (eggs, waffles, pancakes, french toast, biscuits, etc) that you almost forgot it's a vegetarian restaurant. I ordered the 122 special which included eggs, toast or... More

If you have a need for vegetarian/vegan fare in Blacksburg, this is probably the place to go. The food was surprisingly good, such that non-vegetarians could enjoy it. My fish dish was quite good, and the others in our party enjoyed their fish or vegan fare. And they had a very nice wine list as well. That said, the service... More

Gillies is located in the heart of Blacksburg, giving you a taste of local life. Everything is delicious, breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert...Lot's of local artists come to play music. Definitely try the nachos, Chappie's choice, any baked good, or pretty much everything. Just order the whole menu.

This us a Blacksburg tradition if ever there was one. Breakfasts are absolutely fantastic. My favorite is the Spanish frittata. It can get very crowded on weekends, but even then it's worth the wait.

Great place right off of campus - food was excellent, service was great, and it was a good value. Definitely will go again. I loved the vegetarian brunswick stew! Would have had lunch there again but went there around 1pm on Saturday to find out that they only serve breakfast on Saturdays till 2pm then they close - so keep... More

We have been to Gillie's twice when visiting Blacksburg, once for dinner and a few days ago for breakfast. Dinner was very good and motivated us to come back, but breakfast is what motivated me to write this review. We all ordered something different and I love how they have classic favorites and really cool combinations packed with flavor. I... More

Vegan, vegetarian, and fresh local fish, across the street from Virginia Tech on College Ave. Great vibe.
