I split my time between Fort Collins and Louisiana so I’m kind of jaded as far as traditional Creole-Cajun food goes. Lucille‘s is a little piece of New Orleans in Fort Collins and without a doubt one of the best restaurants in town!

After three visits, I am certain this is my favorite place in Fort Collins. Breakfast, brunch and lunch. Even early afternoon snack or dessert. So much good food. Enjoyed Cafe au lait, beignets, strawberry rhubarb jam, apple sweet pepper jam, crawfish etouffee, Eggs Benedict, cornbread....More

The food was/is absolutely AMAZING! The Biscuits and homemade granola were absolute to die for. And I love the homemade jams and ketchup they have. When I first went there, I thought the ketchup was blueberry jam, so I dipped it in my beignet. Although...More

You know, I simply do not understand some of the negative reviews. Petty complaints: trying to pick up a tea order right at closing time? Rude waitress? Not enough vegetarian dishes? Really? I moved away from Fort Collins 18 years ago. I have returned; and...More

Lucile's is the best spot around for breakfest/brunch. Delicious bloody marys and classic cajun breakfest favorites. The wait to be seated can be a little long on weekends/ or for large groups. Cant go wrong with any choice on the menu.

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!

I’ve had breakfast and lunches there during all season throughout many years. This is a very popular and well established restaurant. I once lived in New Orleans where I enjoyed great dining in former homes. Lucile’s is authentic! The service is good as well as...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.
