    I always like to walk up to Gilly's to get away for a break at lunch time. Perfect little cafe - lots (and lots!) of good choices on the menu. The all-day breakfast is great (you can have a small or larger version) - the fresh omelette's are always cooked to perfection and panini's are delicious too! There are lots of other choices on the menu that I am yet to try, but everything is always fresh and tasty. Staff are lovely and you can also order pretty much anything on the menu to take away, if you don't have time to sit in and eat. Great, friendly cafe - and in a perfect sunny spot to sit outside when the rain stops...!

    Every time I come to Leicester from the US, Gilly's is literally my first stop off of the plane. Their small English Breakfast is my all-time favourite out of all the English breakfasts I have tried at other places. My vegetarian daughter loved the vegetarian breakfast so much she had to go back a couple more times before the end of our short stay. The staff is really great about working with special dietary needs, too. I had recently gone on the keto diet and they made me a breakfast to order that was filling and delicious. The place is small but a table is well worth the wait. The staff is like family to me now that I have been there so many times, and they will make you feel like family, too!

    Visited Gillys for breakfast with a friend. I'm a fussy foodie and wasnt sure if I would like anything on the menu. Ordered an omelette and salad, asked for avocado as an extra side, also added extra ingredients to omelette all of which I was told was not a problem at all. Omelette was delicious and service was fab, a real welcoming and relaxed atmosphere! I'll be revisiting soon!!

    We regularly go to Gillys for lunch and breakfasts, the food is lovely, the breakfasts are really well cooked and presented. There is a good selection of sandwiches, cobs, paninis, wraps and jacket potatos, all cooked freshly at a reasonable price. The service is quick and the staff are very friendly and chatty. I would highly recommend this place if you are in the area.

    Not sure if Sarah Louise was having dinner in the same place as this but Gillys is clean and friendly and great value. She obviously has something against this establishment. Well worth a visit 10/10

    Recently visited the cafe and very happy and surprised, it was my sons second birthday and the staff must of noticed straight away as he was carrying a little balloon on there which said happy birthday, as we are regulars the staff were so inviting and welcoming to my little boy and when we ordered our puddings they even went out there way to put 2 small candles in the cake for my boy, he loved it! The staff are so welcoming and friendly every time I visit, and even when rushed off there feet always make the effort to say hello! The food is always spot on, I ordered a full English breakfast and it was perfect, and my little boy ordered the pancakes for breakfast! The place is always so clean as well even when busy, thanks again guys!

    Still the best in Leicester for breakfast and brunch. The staff are amazing and attentive, quality ingredients used for all of the food we’ve ever eaten here, the most enjoyable casual dining experience we’ve had. The owners are very conscious about greeting everyone and making sure you’ve had a great experience. Can not fault the food, staff or venue. 5*!

    I visited here with a couple of friends for lunch. We have been here a few times and the food has been lovely and not had any issues with the place. However, we visited recently and I was very surprised at a few things. Firstly, my friend had a panini with salad and coleslaw and the coleslaw looked so watery and my friend couldn't eat it as she said it tasted awful. We then noticed the stack of plastic jugs in the back kitchen that were all stained orange from baked beans or soup etc. It looked awful. The cakes are all premade from Atkins bakery in sealed packets and don't taste fresh at all. I thought this place would of made some fresh cakes as they make all other food so it's quite disappointing for puddings/desserts. Finally, when we were leaving, we all noticed that our shoes were sticking to the floor as we left and every footstep was sticking. Very disappointed to be honest. The guy who used to be here was very nice and I can only assume it's new management.
