Luckys Cafe was a lucky find!

Meeting my sister and her husband for dinner so we looked for a new place to try in Worcester and Lucky's turned out to be a real charm. First impression was the size, it's cozy, quaint and nicely decorated. There was a couple playing acoustic music and singing in the far corner. Just loud enough... read more

Lucky's is in the Grove Street building that used to be a factory. Food is delicious. I especially recommend their breakfasts!

Lucky's is the best kept secret! I was introduced to Lucky's by some colleagues, and it is the best place to go for a perfect sized soup/sandwich lunch. It's easy to walk to if you are located in that area, it's not expensive, the food is great, and the people are super friendly. I have always had a great experience.

It is worth going down in the basement! Good breakfast and great coffee. The service was very good and the food was terrific. Had a wonderful french toast with strawberry honey butter. $15 for two for breakfast.

This is a wonderful place to go for breakfast. The eggs were excellent and the staff was so friendly. The decor is splendid - its in the basement of what used to be an old factory! The staff seem to take great pride in this place and that adds to the whole dining experience. I'd defiantly go back if I'm... More

This place was down from our hotel and after looking at reviews on Tripadvisor we couldn't wait to have bfast here. Wow! We have two teenage boys and the price of the food along with the portions was awesome! Pancakes were melt in your mouth and the home fries were great. Two thumbs up!

Don't be put off by the faded sign outside, or the basement location, or the longish trek down a nondescript hallway, because what you get at the end is worth it. Pete, the owner, is a sweetheart posing as a philosophical curmudgeon. Most important, the food is delicious -- particularly the peanut-chicken soup. If you can't make the weekend only... More

With the average entrée of $15 and a byob policy Lucky's Café is quite the deal. It's only open for dinner on Friday and Saturday nights. Do make reservations, though, because of the limited seating capacity, I've seen lots of folks turned away

Lucky's is a bit hard to find downstairs but worth the effort.From the baked feta app (a favorite) to the peanut soup or the fish specials everything is fresh and delicious.Wait staff members are always great. Music on Saturday night is a nice touch but you must make a reservation.
