“Fun family diner!”
Reviewed November 4, 2011

Gilli's, just off the highway, is a great place to stop when in or passing through New Liskeard. We were at a hockey tournament with our three kids for a weekend and we ate there both mornings. We had the usual diner breakfast: eggs, pancakes, etc. and it was good. What I loved was the decor- the whole place is decked out with fun trucker themed decor. The bar is edged with the metal found on the running boards of transport trucks with lights and other details and in the main eating area is half of a transport cab coming out of the wall. Our boys loved it. It kept them in their seats as there was lots to look at. The service was great- pleasant and quick and bilingual. The owners thought of every detail- there is even a little gift shop with transport truck toys. I highly recommend it if looking for good diner food! (I'm giving the food 4 stars only because it was classic diner food- it was good- no complaints, it just didn't blow my socks off as exceptional in some way.)
