A Fort Collins icon. A must visit for visitors. Bring a big appetite or share a plate. Enjoy the chicory coffee. Ken’s Tip: Get there early or be prepared to wait. And it’s worth the wait.

Went with a good friend for the second time and this place rocks! We shared the Eggs Jennifer and it was out of this world. Our waitress was awesome and super friendly. Every time I visit Ft. Collins, I will always come here for breakfast.

My number one breakfast spot in this town! Of course, it requires a little patience, as the wait can be slightly cumbersome. But the crowd is usually good natured, the wait staff amidst crowded space are deft and pleasant. I usually go for the special--it's...More

Be prepared to wait for a table in this popular smallish cafe. The menu is authentic Cajun- Creole. The Eggs Pontchartrain was delicious, with jalapeno cheesy grits. The biscuit is huge, and regionally-correct. The service was prompt and courteous. Definitely try the house-made hot sauce....More

Although we have eaten at other Luciles', this weekday lunch visit with a large group of friends was our first to the FoCo location. As always the food is the reason to go here - both the shrimp creole and my fried shrimp poboy were...More

You are in luck.....breakfast is served until closing (2 or 3 p.m so check their website for available hours). Regardless of what you order DO order a biscuit with your meal. Large, fluffy, divine. And the jams and jellies... More

Plenty of gluten-free options...just ask. Omlettes and other eggy items are good. No dogs can go through restaurant. There's grass outside the fence and a water-dish.
