Always like to explore local owned shops when I travel and finding Lucy's was perfect. They have a great selection of coffee's and tea, some food and pastries. What I liked most was the ambiance. Felt like I was in my living room enjoying a morning cup of java before heading out for the day. This place is hip, laid... More

Fantastic coffee and sandwich shop I happened to run across! The sandwich and salad were yummy and they were celebrating 24 years in business!

Lucy's is a little café located in the midst of the UAB complex. You feel welcome the minute you enter the door. The staff is friendly and helpful. The food is delicious and a welcome change from the usual fast food in the area. The Panini's are huge and they will gladly provide foil and a paper bag to take... More

I've been twice now. Both times I ordered the blt panini- never had better. Amazing something so simple could be made to taste so good!! Also had a hot chai tea-also delicious. Wasn't a huge fan of the smoothie, but all in all, very happy with this place. Great location if you work at uab!!!❤️

The coffee was good. The cookie was OK, not bad, not the best ever. The atmosphere is cute and artsy, with paintings on the wall. The tables are a mix of what I remember as being 50's-60's style diner tables. It's a good place to go to relax a bit and people-watch.

Lucy's is a cute cafe with an amazing tea selection, kindhearted staff, and some mad sandwiches on their menu. I got the roast beef sandwich. It packed a horseradish punch which was amazing! My sinuses thanked me. The cafe has such a lovely atmosphere. I'll be back!

I went to Lucy's for the first time today and immediately loved the atmosphere with their cozy couches and nice coffee shop vibe. I decided on a half Panini and half soup order for lunch. The soup was delicious, but the bread of the Panini seemed nothing more than an flattened hamburger bun. Perhaps I could've requested an alternate bread... More

In my travels and quests for non chain local independent coffee shops I found Lucy's. I had a great cup of coffee and friendly conversation. I particularly like the chalk board on the wall that keeps the tab for their local regular customers. Very unique to this local favorite
