If you aren't there by 8:30 a.m., expect to wait. But wait. It's delicious Cajun food. I would stand in the rain for their homemade jams and biscuits. The southern cuisine is awesome! And the Cajun Mary's come with a shrimp!

This is the best Cajun breakfast in town, I am a local and I would go here first. Very small and very crowded on the weekends. Go on a weekday and a half order is enough. Their biscuits and fresh jelly are to die for.

We stopped in here to grab a bite of lunch after touring the brewery. Service was great, food was delicious, and definitely be sure to try the beignets (warning: they are HUGE)!

The restaurant is in a cute little house that has been converted into a restaurant that serves New Orleans style food. We really like eating here. We don't go too often because their hours are more limited and at the times we think of going we know there will be a long wait for a table but it is totally... More

This is a great place to eat breakfast and brunch. The food is quality and there are healthy choices. Be prepared to wait though as it is very popular.

Love the food, the cinnamon tea, and the friendly atmosphere. It has a much different menu than most restaurants in Fort Collins. It is also close to Old Town.

Lucile's is very popular with locals and has been featured in articles in publications such as AAA Colorado's EnCompass. In addition, the restaurant house is fairly small and the hours are the typical ones for breakfast-lunch restaurants (7am-2pm Monday through Friday; 8am-2pm Saturday and Sunday). They actually have a graph of popular hours on their Facebook page. Just click on... More

Don't be in a hurry; because you'll need to wait for a table. There's a good reason for this. The food and drinks are GREAT!!! Quirky little place with nice outdoor area and always a crowded bar. Servers are polite, helpful, and efficient. Food is Cajun with a flair for experimenting. Home-made beignets, biscuits, jams, etc. are to die for!!!

We eat at Lucille's every time we visit our son who lives in FoCo. Up until today, I always rate Lucille's a "5" and have consistently eaten breakfast. Today, we had lunch of gumbo and crawfish ettouffee. The crawfish tasted far too fishy as if the water from the crawfish had been added to the dish. And the gumbo was... More

Not really a chain although there are more than one in Colorado. I think this is the best breakfast place in Fort Collins. I lived in the New Orleans area for seven years and this small "house" is just as good as many of the places in Louisiana. I love the breakfast options, but a word of caution ... Don't... More
