Can you get southern hospitality in N Colorado, yes! This is a top notch, professionally run restaurant. Smiles and good cheer abound. The decor and ambiance is cozy, home style. Be hungry my friends! Thirsty too. I had a screw driver made with fresh squeezed OJ and premium vodka, mmm, not on the menu but the server was happy to... More

I love the food at Lucile's. Their breakfasts are unique and the biscuits and gravy are the best I've ever had, including what I make

Ft Collins has many great restaurants but the great find was Lucile's.It is just a little yellow house adjacent to the Lincoln Center on Meldrum street. You can tell it is great by the crowd of people that are gathered out side waiting to get in.Walk in and give them your phone number and wait for the call. In the... More

Let the Good Times Roll! And Lucile's doesn't disappoint! Beignets, Chicory coffee, shrimp and grits, collard greens, biscuits as big as your hand. Missing New Orleans and Creole food? This is your place. Just want an amazing breakfast and coffee? This is your place, too! The "regular" coffee is, honestly, the best in town. The portions are big. The servers... More

Excellent place for breakfast. It's rather small and cramped, but the food and service are great! Definitely worth checking it out!

Best creol food in town. Beignets like cafe du monde. Chicory coffee is amazing. Little packed so get there early and be prepared to wait. It will be worth it though.

Delicious brunch with children and sisters...everyone tried different things and some had dessert. Wait was long for a table for a big party, but WORTH IT! Benedicts were delicious. Beignets were good for not being in Louisiana at Cafe DuMonde. Desserts were decadent. Service was great. A must-do whenever you are in Fort Collins. Great biscuits and many Cajun choices... More

Oh, boy. What scrumptious food. A selection of dishes that make it hard to choose. Took my sister there when she visited from out of town. We could have been completely happy with a superb biscuit with their jams, butter and some delicious coffee, refilled every time a smiling waitress passes the table, which is often. But we had to...
