I lived in Fort Collins for a few years and never made it to Lucille's. Now, on a visit back, I finally made it. Wow, I surely should have gone sooner. It is, simply put, exquisite, from staff to servings. Wonderful environment. We ate on...More

If you are looking for some good Cajun food this is the place. Locations in Boulder, Longmont and ft Collins. Delicious biscuits the size of your face. Incredible egg dishes Cajun style. Poboys and lots more with beignets for appetizer or dessert.

This restaurant could have been in Lafayette, Louisiana. The decor, the ambience, and the music, all very Cajun. I had grits and eggs and andoullie, hubby had the Eggs Sardou. We both had the gargantuan biscuit. There is homemade ketchup on the table! It was...More

Lucile's is in an old house cheerily redone as a brightly colored Cajun Cafe. The seating is a bit tight in this busy place loaded with regulars. I found the menu to be somewhat short for breakfast and the lunch menu to be a bit...More

This is a charming restaurant open for breakfast and lunch. Plan on waiting to dine, although the day we were there the wait was short. The food is excellent but the space is a little tight. Authentic New Orleans style breakfast.

After having visited Down south and ate the food there, this place is real! Food is great along with their staff. Make sure you eat beignets and have cup of coffee!

If the crowds outside the door are any indication, this restaurant is a local favorite for breakfast and lunch- especially on weekends. The is a touch of 'southern cooking' in the menu and everything is 'good'.

We were in Fort Collins Saturday morning for some running around. A late breakfast was in order....Lucile's of course. I ate here once before, years ago when our kids were attending CSU. I have visited several of the other Lucile's locations as well. I ordered...More

Excellent food, short wait. Plenty of food, great service, too much to choose from on the menu, we were hungry and left very full with goodies to take home.

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.
