I do not understand the good reviews

I do not understand the reviews this place gets. The food was of mediocre (the potatoes were burned, the eggs kind of rubbery, and the biscuits flavorless and doughy, no fluff to them at all) but that's not where the place falls down. The service is deplorable. They don't take reservations... read more

You have to love a spot that EVERYONE loves. Add the fact that they offer morning cocktails in the reception area. And Cajun Bloody Mary's are quite good. But don't dismiss the Cuban orange juice either. A quaint old house, with creaks and antiques, the attentive wait staff deliver an exceptional meal. I must also suggest the jalapeño grits -... More

I have gone to Lucille's many times (it's in my neighborhood) and it's always been awesome. There is usually a wait, especially on weekends. Sometimes they offer table sharing to help reduce the wait. All the benedicts are fabulous. This place is HARD on your diet, but worth the splurge!

We go to Lucille's often and the food and service there are always outstanding. Their spiced ice tea is wonderful if you like cinnamon and lots of natural flavors. Their Cajun Breakfast is one of the best I have ever had. I can't wait to go there again.

A mainstay for years whose quality hasn't suffered like so many other restaurants do. Best breakfast in town but always crowded for good reason. Weekdays less hectic. Don't over order cause portions are big. Hanks eggs, not on menu anymore is my fave...they'll do it if you ask. Best bisquits and jam in town.

Went to Lucile's on a Saturday morning for breakfast, probably about 10 am.It was busy, but not so busy that we had to wait. There were some interesting things on the menu--stuff you don't usually get that far north. Like Grits, or Pain Perdu (dead bread). The grits were runny-thin, the pain perdu was really only french toast on sourdough... More

Lucille's are known for their Begnets. They are delicious! They also have standard fare breakfasts that go with the Begnets. Must try this unique breakfast.

My experience this morning at Lucile's was met with a warm greeting from the sweet lady at the front desk then quickly seated at their bar which viewed the kitchen. The lady who served me promptly suggested a variety of drinks including freshly squeezed orange juice and grapefruit juice, I caved in and ordered the orange juice. My breakfast choices... More

Lucile's has been a brunch mainstay of ours for a long time. We started going to Lucile's in the 80s at the Boulder location and visit the Longmont location regularly; however, the last two times (in August and October), we have been a bit disappointed. It seems they have switched hands, and the dishes are not quite the same. The... More
