What says Blacksburg better than Gillie's? All natural type foods, salmon, but no real meat. It is my Houston son's favorite Blacksburg restaurant. You have not been to Blacksburg until you've eaten at Gillie's. No commercialized soda pop, so don't expect a Diet Coke. Expect...More

If you want a very good vegetarian not expensive brunch this is an institution in Virginia Tech students' life. They also have some seafood things. It could be crowded on weekends.

Great breakfast, pancakes hot and tasty. Biggest grit i ever ate. Busy, busy, busy. Service suffers a bit because so busy but honestly who cares, good spot. Will be back.

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.

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...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...More

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.
