Lucilles has delicious homemade biscuits and jams to smear on them. It is always worth the wait. Their beignets are also very good especially when their done all the way. Love their napkins. Very creative!!

Cajun breakfast done right with red beans and ham. Best potatoes around. Friend loved her omelette. Excellent coffee with a deep smooth note. Young and old smushed together in this little house on a corner. You can almost see the magic rising from the chimney! Packed house but extremely efficient staff.

Lucile's looks a tad unprepossessing from the outside, and it would be easy to drive by. Fortunately we had a recommendation. We arrived at 8.10 am and found a table immediately. Fifteen minutes later, the restaurant was full, and there was a queue outside. We started off with Beignets - well, they are one of Lucile's specialities - and then... More

We were referred to Lucile's by the vet doctor at the hospital we took our pet to. It was hard to find at first and seemed like a small little place, but once inside the atmosphere was very Cajun and cozy. Everything we ordered was amazing and full of flavor and presented in such an amazing way. I've never taken... More

There is no doubt Lucile's has one of the best breakfasts in fort Collins, the dishes are to die for and their coffees and teas are wonderful. they have a variety of dishes from cajun to basic. BUT be prepared for long long waits, and realize this is a small place so there isn't any waiting area except outside and... More

We have loved Lucile's for years and again this morning had a wonderful breakfast there. The food is always good and the locals know it, so be prepared for a wait outside most visits (we went at 10 am on a Friday and waited about 10 minutes for a table for 2). Don't worry, it's worth it! We adore our... More
