The food is awesome. The biscuits are outstanding with their house brand rhubarb/strawberry jam. Portion sizes are good. The only real downside is there is almost always a wait. On the weekends the wait can run upwards of half an hour.

The key to getting in on a Sunday morning, is coming before ten a.m. By the time, people were grouped all over the front lawn. Service was prompt and excellent. Before our breakfasts were served, we got large servings of buttermilk biscuits with three choices...More

A friend in Ft Collins recommended Lucile's for breakfast. We have been to a number of good restaurants in Ft Collins and this is one of the best. My husband had a platter that was enough food for four breakfasts (which he got with the...More

This place never disappoints. We had a short wait on Labor Day morning and it was worth it. Delicious breakfast and a very friendly, efficient server.

We enjoy a different and unique menu. This fits that definition. Go early as it gets crowded. Will return. Highly recommended for breakfast. Not for the scrambled eggs and bacon crowd, way above simple.

Breakfast with a southern, Cajun spin. Generous portions. Many people leave with to-go boxes! Not a bread person but the biscuits are amazingly light, fluffy and crunchy on top. Paired with their homemade jellies (also excellent) I could dine on the biscuits alone and feel...More

Early August 2016, a move to the 80524. After a punishing pre-dawn morning of packing two trucks, driving with confused, curious pets, empty stomachs, tumbling hearts and emotions, we rolled into Fort Collins. We found a space in front of Lucile's. I explained about my...More

Lucile's seems to be a local favorite -- it always has a full house starting very early in the morning even on weekdays. We stopped by for lunch at 1:00 pm and had a 15 minute wait - not a problem because we used the...More

Excellent Creole food cooked fresh in a nice setting. Homemade jams compliment the fresh biscuits very well. Space is limited, tables and people are set in close proximity. Ask for the patio if possible. Friendly, positive staff.

You are in luck.....breakfast is served until closing (2 or 3 p.m so check their website for available hours). Regardless of what you order DO order a biscuit with your meal. Large, fluffy, divine. And the jams and jellies... More

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.
