I've been a regular at Lucile's for decades. Not quite as good as in New Orleans, but close enough to get my motor running. Speaking of which, the spicy iced tea is so delicious it's easy to drink way, way too much of it and get a caffeine buzz that follows you around for the rest of the day. Excellent... More

I was a little worried about Creole cuisine in Colorado, but this was a very nice spot. They found nice ways to incorporate the flavors of Louisiana in their menu and we greatly enjoyed our breakfast. It's in a nice old building and the staff was very friendly and helpful. It was well worth the calories!

Was hoping to have a shrimp po'boy & beignets for lunch, but they didn't have the shrimp po'boy. Bummer. Had brunch instead. The waffle was delicious, but a bit skimpy on fruit; about half a banana & 2 sliced strawberries. Eggs & potatoes were average. Where they shine is the beignets - hot & delicious! Good coffee too, as well... More

I don't go in for breakfast food much, but I had the shrimp and grits and it was fantastic. I also ordered a side salad which was bigger than my head; did not finish.

For an authentic taste of Creole in Boulder, Lucile's is the best. Every dish is delicious! Enjoy breakfast on the porch if you can!

Lovely little place, there is always a wait. As far as food goes, biscuits were the highlight (huge) and everything else was ok, not great. My scrambled eggs and everything on the plate was cold. Don't try to order any of the lunch stuff (most of their Cajun/Creole selections) on the menu they give you before 11am. We were seated... More

We ate here recently on a day trip to Boulder based on a recommendation for a co-worker. My husband had the shrimp and grits and I had the eggs Jennifer. Both were delicious. We also started with beignets - which I wouldn't order again. First it's just too much food for two people, and they were just ok. The side... More

Looking for a cozy, homestyle, southern meal? This is the place to savor it. You'll feel right at home in the quaint Victorian surroundings. There is nothing remotely pretentious about Lucile's. It is just wonderful food made fresh. This is the "original" cafe and it is famous for its breakfasts. But, I had a hankering for some pan-fried trout with... More

We never miss going to Lucille's when we are visiting Boulder. It's probably 30+ years! Our favorites are Cajun breakfast and Eggs Sardou. Come hungry as you will want to eat it all.

Having travelled to boulder only once before and eating at Lucille's, I knew I needed to go back. Returned with some family and enjoyed a very nice, southern style breakfast. Everything was amazing, the beignets are always awesome an the biscuits are huge. (tip: black shirts will be powdered after eating beignets, residue of the awesomeness). Mahalo from Hawaii
