Beignets, Shrimp & Grits, Po Boys, fried oysters--they're all here & all delicious! Lucile's serves one of the best breakfasts in town in a funky old location that's more 80's Denver than it is the French Quarter. All of the jams, marmalades and sauces are made in house and every one is a homerun. Weekends & holidays can be nuts here but we had breakfast on a Tuesday and it was very chill and not crowded.
IMPORTANT TIP: When given the choice of a biscuit, do it and get a side of gravy. You'll be glad you did!

We had a great time with a lively crowd waiting for a table for brunch. There is an outdoor bar where you can order drinks while you wait. All of the entrees ordered by our party were excellent. Be sure to order a buttermilk biscuit- outstanding!

The breakfast here is the best I've tasted in years and there is plenty food on each plate. You'll find yourself wanting to eat their homemade jams right out of the jar. Go ahead and do it. The jams are that good. If you go on the weekend, go early or be prepared to wait. If you have a late night planned on a weekend, stay up all night and go for breakfast at 8 am. If you go on a Saturday morning, look for Jesse and get a table in her area. She'll give you excellent recommendations and will up sale you like a pro and you will love it! I walked out with a big bag of spiced tea and I've gave up black tea over a year ago. She's good.

Avoid at all costs!!
Hostess says can't put on wait list till ALL party is present. Then what do you know...two gals walk in and sit down at a table where two others have already been eating!
When I ask the hostess about the "exception" her excuse is "they were already here and went together their purses". Like who leaves their purses in the car?
Seriously?! Is that why they hugged each as if just seeing each other?
I dont care how good the food may be it's too pretentious for me.

Went on a Sunday to celebrate a birthday. Short wait but big location and plenty of places to sit. Coffee and cocktails available before seating although coffee was expensive and lukewarm. Have been to Fort Collins location and food and service here was great. Homemade jellies and jams, blackened salmon, eggs benny all amazing - everyone loved the food. However not cheap so a special occasion for a family of 5.
