Delicious for Breakfast

Although this place is fairly small and there is often a wait for a table I have to say the wait is worth it most of the time. The Eggs Benedict are traditional and when the eggs are cooked consistently it among the best I've ever had. The Cajun Breakfast with red beans, poached eggs and... read more

Food was lukewarm (at best), eggs & oysters overcooked, service substandard (biscuits were forgotten, water refill requests forgotten). We sat outside and the maintenance of that space is also substandard - weeds, overgrown plants "in my face", overcrowded etc. To top it off, we had to stand in line behind several people to pay the bill due to 'computer issues'....

This little place looks super charming from the outside and the inside doesn't look so bad either...though I think with a few improvements it would be super cute. The food was really good...I got the cajun turkey club and it was outstanding...but, I immediately regretted not getting the cajun biscuits and gravy with grits and beans on the side. The... More

If you've ever spent time in the south, and especially bayou country, you'll know what good food is. Lucile's Creole Cafe brings that down home country cooking to Colorado. From the fresh baked Beignets to the soul filling gumbo, you get your Louisiana experience and then some. In the Longmont Lucile's, you feel like you just stepped into your grandma's... More

We came here at recommendations of the locals we bumped into asking about breakfast recommendations. We were not disappointed! - the menu was interesting. I haven't eaten much "creole" food so it was definitely an experience - the gave us fresh biscuits and they were truly warm and delicious. - our waiter did a great job explaining the menu for...

I love creole food and from my experience the are great. Their staff is great, always smiling and willing to guide you in their menu items. It is fun to explore different ways of cooking and seasoning regular food. Try experimenting their way of cooking. You will enjoy the trip!

One of the most authentic cajun-style restaurants I've ever been to outside of Louisiana. The staff are friendly and the food is fabulous!
