I live around here and this is one of my go-to restaurants. I frequently bring my visiting friends and family here, as Luluc consistently delivers delicious meals. For brunch you can't go wrong with one of their egg dishes that come with a side of...More

We had dessert here. The bread pudding and coffee were ok. The white wine was average at best and disappointing. From looking at the food being served at tables around us, it looks like regular American diner fare.They have a very cute patio out back.

One of the best onion soups in recent memory. Thick, rich, not shy on garlic and gruyere. Perfectly seasoned. For main I had the Gorgonzola and bacon ravioli - just the right amount of cheese and again, perfectly seasoned. The reason it gets three stars...More

The pancakes may quite possibly be the best I've ever had. Cafe Luluc bakes their pancakes, giving it a uniqueness that is unsurpassed. We visited on a Saturday around 2pm and the wait time stated to us was 20-30 minutes. However, we waited for 65...More
