Lucy's is a little café located in the midst of the UAB complex. You feel welcome the minute you enter the door. The staff is friendly and helpful. The food is delicious and a welcome change from the usual fast food in the area. The Panini's are huge and they will gladly provide foil and a paper bag to take... More

I've been twice now. Both times I ordered the blt panini- never had better. Amazing something so simple could be made to taste so good!! Also had a hot chai tea-also delicious. Wasn't a huge fan of the smoothie, but all in all, very happy with this place. Great location if you work at uab!!!❤️

The coffee was good. The cookie was OK, not bad, not the best ever. The atmosphere is cute and artsy, with paintings on the wall. The tables are a mix of what I remember as being 50's-60's style diner tables. It's a good place to go to relax a bit and people-watch.

Lucy's is a cute cafe with an amazing tea selection, kindhearted staff, and some mad sandwiches on their menu. I got the roast beef sandwich. It packed a horseradish punch which was amazing! My sinuses thanked me. The cafe has such a lovely atmosphere. I'll be back!

I went to Lucy's for the first time today and immediately loved the atmosphere with their cozy couches and nice coffee shop vibe. I decided on a half Panini and half soup order for lunch. The soup was delicious, but the bread of the Panini seemed nothing more than an flattened hamburger bun. Perhaps I could've requested an alternate bread... More

In my travels and quests for non chain local independent coffee shops I found Lucy's. I had a great cup of coffee and friendly conversation. I particularly like the chalk board on the wall that keeps the tab for their local regular customers. Very unique to this local favorite

The coffee here is fresh. The pastries are wonderful. And it has that nice cozy coffee shop atmosphere that small independent shops generally do.

Searching for something different while in the UAB area of Birmingham, we happened upon Lucy's Coffee and Tea on TripAdvisor. We have to agree with the past reviewers that it rates with the best places in the area to grab lunch. All the food is freshly prepared with delicious quality recipes. I had a chicken salad croissant that may be... More
