Highly recommend Gillies breakfast menu. I have never been a fan of big breakfasts but their grits with breakfast beans was a great way to get the day started. Large portions and good coffee, can't speak for the lunch menu.

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.

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.
