Great for breakfast with beignets, huge helpins and homemade jams and jellies. Get hanks eggs but opt for 1/2 order. It's huge. Many other delights as well

I used to live and work in New Orleans, and now visit once a year. Not the French Quarter, but local cajun, creole, and seafood establishments frequented by locals. I expect life, spirit, and a wow factor in food from that area, including breakfast. The food at Lucile's was good for the area, but was fairly lifeless compared to real... More

We've been to Lucile's several times, and it is always delicious. Bear in mind that that it is a fairly small restaurant, and very popular, so your wait may be LONG. That said, it is always worth it. I love the chicory coffee, and my husband and kids are nearly obsessed with the cinnamon sweet tea. We usually splurge on... More

Great Breakfasts in a perfect setting. Staff is always welcoming. Can be a long wait for a table, but it is worth the wait.

We love Lucile's. The food is so good as is the service. We love the breakfast (Eggs Sardou, Red Beans and Eggs, beignets, biscuits, corn bread...) and the lunch menu as well. It's a bit crowded and since it's popular, the wait can take awhile. I also wish they'd cut back on the salt; we always need a potassium antidote... More

Breakfast fare is hearty and much like that in New Orleans. I never have to eat until late in the day once I have eaten here. I love the quaint atmosphere and the ability to take my out of town friends here for a treat.

Living in Fort Collins, Lucille's is always a place to go for something special and exciting. The reason we don't go there more often is that it's too tempting to overeat! The beignets are excellent, chicory coffee is steamin' hot, the Bloody Mary's are amazing and the portion sizes are generous. I have never had a complaint at Lucille's. If... More

..... so our coed grand daughter took us to her fav Louisiana cuisine joint: LUCILE'S at 400 S. Meldrum, for a Saturday brunch. It's a small converted house. It has a very nice, warm, cozy feel with some out-door seating. The wait-staff were very friendly and helpful. Service was prompt. There were 6 of us and we all loved the... More

This place has been on point since the 90's when I attended college. The food is cajun fantastic and cooked perfect. This place has become busier since then but it is worth the wait. Staff was pleasant and awesome.
