Fort Collins has many outstanding breakfast options, but Lucille's remains the finest. Eggs Jennifer are an outstanding option as are the nearly opposite Hanks Eggs. The biscuits are by far the greatest ever attempted. We eat them half with the homemade jams and marmalades and half with a side of Cajun sausage gravy. Every meal served is perfect

On our trip back for a visit I insisted we go to Lucille's their homemade preserves and ketchup are divine! Portions are large. Service was fantastic. A must try!

Went to Lucilles for a breakfast for the first time in October and found it to be excellent. Had an Andouille sausage egg mix which l was both delish and authentic. And the beneit(sp) was outstanding. Highly recommended.

You can always count on this restaurant for serving delicious dishes. It is true home cooking, although I don't cook this well! Always a treat. Only problem is the wait (no reservations).

Absolutely the best breakfast in Fort Collins. Large portions with enough to take home for a second meal. Service is above and beyond friendly, personable, knowledgeable about the menu items and the atmosphere is warm and cozy and welcoming. Just love it! Pleasant experience EVERYTIME.

Yum! So very tasty! The potatoes are seasoned creole and are delicious. They have a very interesting menu. I love my usual breakfast so much that it's difficult to order anything else. and their biscuit and homemade jam. They have house made ketchup that is delicious. House made hot pepper vinegar to go on their greens. This is not a... More

I love cajun food and just about everything on their menu is to die for. The place is tiny and there is a long wait anytime we go but the food and atmosphere are excellent, apart from how many people are together in a small space.

I try to hit up Lucile's every time I'm in Ft Collins. Everything tastes superb and it's the ultimate home cooked meal. Expect a long wait especially for brunch. Totally worth it though. It's a small place, a somewhat converted old house, but that's part of its charm. The biscuits are TO DIE FOR, and don't you dare leave without... More

I have never had such a good breakfast in my life. The beignets and the biscuit/jam are to die for. I had a cheese omelet as well which doesn't seem like anything to crazy but it was out of this world. The best omelet of my life. There is always a wait for a table and it is ALWAYS worth... More

If you want to eat at Lucille's, get there well before 9 a.m.--it's the most popular restaurant in town, and it's generally packed! This place is a little house that has been converted to a restaurant. Very cute, but crowded--may not be the best place for wandering toddlers (no fault of the restaurant--they welcome kids). If you are looking for... More
