Old Time Comfortable Atmosphere With Food

After being up very early and driving nearly 4-hours to get my son back to WPI, we decided on breakfast nearby. The other cafes had no parking but this location had parking right out front. The parking meter take coin rather than cards so the owner allowed us a few quarters to put in the meter... read more

Pretty crowded, but easy to see why--good food, very reasonable prices. The staff were friendly, but inclined to be forgetful--had to remind a couple of them a couple of times for things like setups and condiments. It's down in a basement and even when you're in the basement it's not easy to spot the door. Parking might be tricky during... More

My husband, sister and I have been going to Lucky's for dinner for years.You cannot beat the food and service plus it's BYOB. Try the chocolate mousse .It is to die for! They always have free entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights and it is so cozy especially in the winter.

Friendly staff serve at this cafe in the lower level of a historic complex in downtown Worcester, Eclectic furnishings add to the charm of this restaurant find. My husband and I visited Lucky's Cafe for breakfast when we were staying across the street at the Courtyard by Marriott. When we sat down, we were immediately greeted and coffee was served... More

We stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott and wanted a nice and convenient place for breakfast on Saturday. Lucky's was convenient, but its menu on line showed it was not open on Saturday. Fortunately, we decided to walk over and check it out. Lucky we did. Luck's was open and it was great. Service was attentive. The food was delicious... More

Great food and great atmosphere, but sometimes there appears a little tension in the air from the staff. I'm not sure what that's all about, but it gives a vibe that doesn't fit with the rest. Regardless, occasional live music for evening meals and a casual breakfast spot makes it worth a visit.
