I go to Lucy's all the time when between meetings, when having a one on one business meeting, sometimes I bring my spouse and/or daughter. Parking is the only bad thing about Lucy's. It's a challenge, but worth it. Occasionally, it gets pretty busy, but I've always experienced prompt service and seating. I usually get breakfast here and enjoy scrambled... More

We did have quite a wait for service do to it being a Sunday after church but it was worth it. Such a busy little diner with friendly service. Great for our impromtu brunch.

Good food and better service describes this local café. Popular with the crowds so get there early. Friendly servers and quaint atmosphere make Lucy's Corner Café a must to visit!

Had breakfast when visiting town. Always our first breakfast stop! Some of the nicest servers we've ever encountered are at Lucy's. Very busy place, many regulars. Will never miss a chance to eat here. Good food, good coffee, decent portions. Parking can be a bit tricky sometimes but the we park & walk.

At 8:30 on a Saturday morning, our party of seven had no problem getting a table that suited our needs. The wait staff was prompt and very nice, and the food was served quickly. The food is very much like you would have at grandmas house, with the breakfast sausage looking hand-formed and having a slightly crispy outside while being... More

After reading some of the bad reviews of this place I thought for sure they had went to the wrong restaurant. When I went I had exceptional service and great food. It's a very "home-y" environment and the people who were working were awesome. The food was very affordable. I will definitely be back whenever I can!

I want to like this place but I just don't. We went the other day and that is the last time. They had empty tables and yet we had to wait 15 minutes for a table. We were seated in the back, down the stairs in the big room. Ceiling fans blowing down were cold and the torn up vinyl... More

Always a great go to when you need a good hearty breakfast meal in CoMo. The menu is huge and it's all fabulous from the eggs to the pancakes and french toast!

My wife and I went here for breakfast. My wife had to inform them that there were multiple tables open outside before they sat us. They weren't even close to full on customers and we waited 41 minutes after ordering for our meal. This is breakfast, one of the simplest and faster meals to make. The staff seemed not to... More
