“Just go to Lucile's.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

Creole, beautifully crafted and seasoned. Do not confuse this with those places that fling a handful of pepper on things and pronounce it cajun. Beignets and biscuits airy and tasty. Homemade jams and ketsup and sauces. Staff is very friendly and service is quick. Prices are very reasonable and portions are generous. Creole-style breakfast all day plus other entrees. Downtown location is always packed. Head for the suburban location and thank me later.

“Ugh, very dissapointed!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012 via mobile

Brunch is tricky business, a lot of people and very fast paced. It is not easy to do well and it wasn't for me last weekend. There are a lot of choices for brunch and I will be making a different one next time. Cold food, rushed service, and rude management does not make for an enjoyable experience.

“The food here is outstanding.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

Not sure what type of places people are eating at when they say the food is"overrated" but there really isnt much better breakfast in Denver. The place does get busy, and the service does suffer at times, but that is an acceptable trade-off for their biscuits. But, to note, the food is not typical bland omelets, potatoes etc. Each meal has bold flavors.

“Overrated”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

This place is so well known, we were expecting a lot more. The service was so so, and the food was less than so so. There are lots of other places that offer better prices and service.
