Fantastic food every time I’ve been there! Great staff and wonderful environment. There is usually a wait, and it’s worth it. The breakfast potatoes are to die for.

Enjoyed a wonderful brunch at Lucile's. The beignets are delicious!! The red beans, sausage gravy and huge biscuits are fantastic! Nice wait staff and great atmosphere for an informal breakfast or lunch!

At first, i am always put off by how crowded it is on weekend mornings, and the wait :(. But once seated, the food is amazing, the wait staff is super sweet and kind, and it is worth the hassle.

Weekends are crowded but well worth the wait. Attentive service, great coffee, and lots of breakfast options. The New Orleans food is authentic and tastes great.

The food is amazing the only complaint I have is there is not enough room for everyone wanting to eat.. Small tables in a small area. But, will be going back to eat :)

Met a friend for breakfast at Lucille's. It was a cold morning but people were waiting outside to get in. I figured it must be good if this many people would brave the cold to be called for a table. Lots of comfort food options...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.
