Lucy's is literally within walking distance from my house, so I've always been keen to try them. My daughter is out of school, so I took her for breakfast. She got the yogurt bowl, which is granola, seasonal fruit, and vanilla yogurt. She gave it...More

Mid-may 2018 I had a casual business lunch at Lucy's Cafe. It was my first time at the restaurant and I was blown away. I cannot wait to return to try more of the items. I had the seasonal soup and quinoa bowl - wow...More

This cafe is on the site of a transformed grocery store; open and bright atmosphere matches the creative menu. Service is good and food is well prepared. Mid week was a good time to visit as weekend brunch crowds are reported to be busy.

Have been meaning to stop here for a long time. Got the chance today. Nice menu selection. I had the Shakshuka which was excellent. Not too spicy but a very rich and flavorful broth. The house made challah toast provided an excellent medium for dipping...More

Came in for a late breakfast on a Saturday. Was seated within 10 minutes. All staff was very friendly. Server gave great recommendations. Food was out within 20 minutes and was very warm. Great diverse menu. Will definitely be going back!
