A tiny little shack of a building amidst large office buildings, this quaint little spot offers some good Cajun food. The gumbo, which I had, changes daily. The day I had it, it was chicken and sausage. Delicious. The accompanying corn bread was just right. The wait staff was quite friendly. I will return.

On a foodcation (not your average vacation!) and have tried several delicious restaurants. This is one of our favorites! Friendly staff, delectable beignets, and the most amazing biscuit you will ever have! Highly recommend!

From the outside, you can see that this is a tiny place. There are as many tables and chairs crammed in there as possible. When you eat there in January and it's freaking cold, there's a constant stream of people coming in and out and the near- or sub-zero temps are whooshing in every time someone opens the door, unless...

We went here for lunch. The location is small and was busy. Limited parking. It was very cold outside. We were seated near the door and froze each time it opened and closed with guests coming and going. We asked to be moved and they accommodated. The food was great. My friend is from New Orleans and even he liked... More

We visited Lucilles as we had been given a gift voucher for christmas. We arrived at about 11am and there were a bunch of people drinking coffee outside. Made our way inside and were a little unsure what to do. No one there to greet people coming in the door and a bunch of people were just milling around. We... More

Real beignets like the ones served in New Orleans, delicious coffee, wonderful breakfast entrees, and nice employees. There can sometimes be a wait but it is well worth it. Everything is made here- even the ketchup. I always go to Lucille's when I go out for breakfast in Fort Collins.

We were in Ft. Collins over Thanksgiving 2014. Enjoyed the "old house" experience. A little crowded...removing a couple of tables would help with the space issue. Staff was very friendly and the Bignet was yummy. Very much like the ones we had in New Orleans. Had the biscuits and gravy....biscuits are huge and the gravy wasn't to spicy or peppery.... More

Went for breakfast never having had a creole breakfast before. Great omelette and great huge biscuit. Bignet looked yummy. Service was okay, wasn't offered their breakfast special, but was happy with my choice at this very homey place.
