Cozy atmosphere with a great deck for outdoor eating. The shrimp po boy is the best I've ever had and the breakfast egg dishes are creative and delicious. Can't go wrong but don't go on the weekend, especially Sunday morning! The wait can be up to an hour and sometimes more if the weather is nice.

Well this was my first visit after hearing wonderful things from friends and family who had been. We went on a peak time on a holiday. It was super busy but even for such a tiny place, the wait was small and the service amazing. The atmosphere is unique and you feel like you are visiting your auntie's house. We... More

We love Lucile's, but it is so busy! If you go on the weekend good luck getting a table, so that's really my only issue. The Egg's Jennifer is great, even a half order is a ton of food, and Cajun Breakfast is also great. Waitstaff is friendly and the atmosphere is good.

Having lived near New Orleans and loving the food we were worried that a restaurant in Colorado wouldn't do it like we're used to, boy we're we WRONG! The food is always amazing! My daughter and I especially love the beignets, pretty darn close to Cage Du Mond. Service excellent! Atmosphere great, love the mismatched plates and cups. You'll have... More

Lucille's is a wonderful place with really great food. However, you must know that they do not take reservations so that you need to stand in line especially on the weekends. It was luckily a nice day so we stood outside and I actually bumped into some old friends from high school while waiting. What a kick. They found us... More

Fort Collins has many outstanding breakfast options, but Lucille's remains the finest. Eggs Jennifer are an outstanding option as are the nearly opposite Hanks Eggs. The biscuits are by far the greatest ever attempted. We eat them half with the homemade jams and marmalades and half with a side of Cajun sausage gravy. Every meal served is perfect

On our trip back for a visit I insisted we go to Lucille's their homemade preserves and ketchup are divine! Portions are large. Service was fantastic. A must try!

Went to Lucilles for a breakfast for the first time in October and found it to be excellent. Had an Andouille sausage egg mix which l was both delish and authentic. And the beneit(sp) was outstanding. Highly recommended.

Thank Scott L
