This place is small but amazing and almost always packed. Isn't that the way of a great restaurant! They serve breakfast and lunch and have the most amazing tea (they brew it themselves and it's their own recipe). This is down home cooking with organic foods and quality meats with a cajun twist on many of their dishes. I love... More

I went with a friend for my birthday and had the special. I had no experience with any of their food...sodding know what to expect...and it was good. Not too spicy but definitely tangy. The portion was very satisfying and only 10 bucks...which seemed completely reasonable.the service was great and personable. That's why there is always a waiting line on... More

This is one of the best breakfast places anywhere. The breakfast choices are outstanding. I ordered the Eggs Pontchartrain which comes with trout, eggs, bearnaise sauce, potatoes, and biscuit. The plate size biscuit that comes first will fill you up if you are not careful. The homemade jams are delicious as is the homemade ketchup and hot sauce.

Lucille's was WONDERFUL! The little yellow house converted into a cozy restaurant is so sweet! I liked that the tablecloths and napkins were rough cut pieces of cloth which kind of reminded me of being at grandma's house. We started with beignets and homemade hot chocolate which were delicious. We then had biscuits with creole sausage gravy. That was soooo... More

I've yet to have a bad experience here, and frankly don't expect to. The food is wonderful, the wait staff is amazing, the biscuits are huge and tasty...over all the best breakfast experience in town, (aside from my own cooikg, of course).

Visited Lucile's again for one of their consistently very good breakfasts. The restaurant is an old home with small rooms. As is often the norm you have to wait for a table and today was no exception. When seated a very competent server provided coffee almost immediately. They offer multiple types of coffee, I prefer the Lucile's over the chicory,... More

Small place and the wait can be long but the wait is well worth it because the food is excellent! Great lunch and breakfast, one of the best restaurants in Fort Collins.

A perfect place to enjoy a hearty breakfast or lunch, Lucille's is situated within walking distance of Old Town and just across the street from the Lincoln Center. It has a wide variety of creole style breakfast (variations on the Eggs Benedict). The wait staff have always been nice and helpful. I didn't give it 5 stars because they are... More

This place deserves the high praise that it gets. The service is impeccable. The atmosphere is inviting and relaxed. The food is tremendous! I'm not usually a fan of biscuits but these are no ordinary biscuits. The coffee? To die for! It was the perfect roast with no acidity. Oh yeah... The food.... Incomparable and indescribable. I had poached eggs... More
