Love this place. Some of the best brunch in town. Friendly, excellent staff. Very nice outdoor patio for the warm weather. Note that it is cash only. Anything with eggs will be great, and anything I've ever seen anyone order has been great.

Be prepared to wait for a table at this very simple, old café. There is no ambience but the FOOD is outrageous. We had breakfast/brunch. Ii had the best quiche of spinach and goat cheese I have ever eaten. The pancakes were more like slices of yellow cake! Delicious! The staff works super hard to handle the crowd. Turn over... More

The most important thing to know before you dine here is that it is cash only. We did not see this posted anywhere near the front of the restaurant or on the menu, so it came a quite a surprise when we got the bill. Otherwise, the food was fine. Not the best ever, but not the worst. There were... More

Cafe Luluc is a nice place to eat. We especially like the outdoor tables. It takes you to the country while you're eating. The food is simple and good. You can never go wrong eating here.

In a delightful space with tin ceilings, brightly painted walls, a nice patio, and knick-knacks from the St Emilion area, one of Brooklyn's most popular brunches is served seven days a week. Breakfast, diner and lunch are all very fresh, very creative and moderately priced. All the menu item are excellent; try the seasonal specialties.

Love the menu. Lots of options. Fish tacos are awesome and big enough to share or leftovers for the next day. The martinis are good and large.

We spent 10 days in NYC and we lived in a Brooklyn apartment. We are crazy for discover new places but this is the only one we returned twice because it is an awsome place with the best brunch in my life. First we had an omlett and a french toast. Both delicious, and the french fries are lovely. Next... More

Café Luluc is an unassuming bistro catering for locals and tourists alike. Service is unhurried and the quality of food is good. The menu offers a French touch but only in name. I enjoyed my visit and would most certainly go again.

Cafe luluc is one of my favorite places to eat at any time of the day. However, if I had to chose a mealtime to eat there as my favorite, it would be brunch. The only caveat is that they are a cash only establishment. Its a tiny place which means its always crowded, but that's to be expected at... More
