We met local friends here based on their recommendation and proximity to the Lyric Theater, our post dinner destination. No a fancy place but comfortable. Not vegetarians but do enjoy occasional meat-less meals. Menu provides lots of choices with fish, black bean burgers, tofu and...More

It's really hard to be a vegetarian and eat even moderately healthy when you travel, especially to small towns. You usually end up with cheese and carbs for every meal. Gillie's has a wide array of vegetarian options with something to suit every taste. I...More

The atmosphere was friendly and warm on the rainy, windy day. The freshly prepared Gillie's Chili and hot tea were just what I needed.

You can’t go wrong with Gillie’s. Terrific breakfast and dinner food. Portion size is great and flavors are always spot on. A must in Blacksburg!

It's hard to get tasty restaurant food that is healthy. This is the place. The vegetables and salmon were obviously very fresh and the service was very friend. Healthy dining.

Their pancakes are to die for. I will never forget my first visit there 30+ years ago. I ordered bacon. Ops, the sign says veggies only.

Excellent food. We had french toast- huge portions, tofu scramble, huevos rancheros, and lox on a baguette with dill goat cheese. They have fresh juice made to order. Plenty of vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free choices.

Very nice, cozy place with a very nice staff. We had coffee and milk. I had the southwest grits which were very good with a slight amount of heat. My wife had the waffles which she enjoyed. My only dig is that they were out...More
