Very friendly staff for opening time [7 am]. Food is always excellent and would recommend this place for breakfast, lunch or... Drink the special spice tea - it has a great kick just like coffee only better.

At first, i am always put off by how crowded it is on weekend mornings, and the wait :(. But once seated, the food is amazing, the wait staff is super sweet and kind, and it is worth the hassle.

Weekends are crowded but well worth the wait. Attentive service, great coffee, and lots of breakfast options. The New Orleans food is authentic and tastes great.

The food is amazing the only complaint I have is there is not enough room for everyone wanting to eat.. Small tables in a small area. But, will be going back to eat :)

Met a friend for breakfast at Lucille's. It was a cold morning but people were waiting outside to get in. I figured it must be good if this many people would brave the cold to be called for a table. Lots of comfort food options...More

A group of 8 was nicely situated in a small area even though space is limited. They did an excellent job of getting all orders correct and served timely. The best beignets and biscuits in the universe. Totally authentic New Orleans.

Plenty of gluten-free options...just ask. Omlettes and other eggy items are good. No dogs can go through restaurant. There's grass outside the fence and a water-dish.
