Lucile's is an eclectic Fort Collins tradition. The decor is Cajun/New Orleans all the way and the food is exceptional. This fun little restaurant is located off the main drag and near the Lincoln center. The seating is tight and at times can be a bit crowded. Get there early and avoid the rush. The food is always great and... More

Lucile's is a local favorite. Wonderful, warm atmosphere. Consistently good food and service. Close to the Lincoln Center and downtown Fort Collins.

Lucile's is the place to go if you like Cajun food including Cajun coffee. Best biscuits and home made jams that are filling enough for a light breakfast all by themselves. Best day to eat at Lucile's is "early" and NOT on the weekends. Really the easiest day to get fast seating and service is on Tuesday. This is a... More

Great coffee and Cajun food. Try the eggs sardou - my favorite with a biscuit, strawberry rhubarb jam, and grits for a tasty breakfast!

This is the best place for breakfast I have been so far. The only and small problem is that they are so good that you will probably have to wait in line a little bit before having your table but it is very small comparing to how good they are.

This is an amazing restaurant that is best for breakfast. The downside is the wait time which is due in part to the small seating area from it being a converted house. I am not sure if expanding would ruin the experience, but I would have gone more if I was more willing to deal with the wait.

We visited on a Tuesday for lunch. It was busy but we were seated promptly. It is located in a house in a quasi-residential area without a lot of parking. Breakfast looks great including the homemade biscuits. We opted for lunch. My wife had the chicken special with greens and a side of fruit. The dish had a mustard-caper sauce... More

Stopped at Lucilles for breakfast after traveling for 12 hours and what a reward! The food is excellent, great quality, quantity, flavor, and presentation. The waiter was super kind and brought my friend and I extra bread and jelly. In general, this is a place where one leaves more than happy. Loved it!

Cozy atmosphere with a great deck for outdoor eating. The shrimp po boy is the best I've ever had and the breakfast egg dishes are creative and delicious. Can't go wrong but don't go on the weekend, especially Sunday morning! The wait can be up to an hour and sometimes more if the weather is nice.
