I love this place. The food is locally grown and tastes extremely fresh. I am obsessed. I brought my parents here when they came to visit. Its in a cute little old house as well which just adds a touch to the character.

Best breakfast in Colorado. All housemade so even the ketchup is wonderful...biscuits with strawberry-rhubarb jam to die for. The wait can be long.

Worth the wait! This location keeps the tradition just like other Lucile's. Cajun style breakfasts are the best. Arrive early for the least time to wait.

Lucile's is THE best place for breakfast in Boulder. The food is unbelievably delicious! I always take out of town guest here. The location is great; right next to the Pearl Street Mall. Make sure to order the beignets as a treat to go with your chicory coffee.

My favorite of all breakfast places in the Boulder area. There's another location in Longmont. Two problems: (1) parking is a pain and (2) it's everyone's favorite breakfast spot. So... get there before 8:30. 8:00 is even better.

Don't get me wrong. Luciles is a great place with good food and cool ambience but without fail I always get sausage in my potatoes which is excusable once but three times in a row is a little silly. Maybe its my fault and sausage is suppose to be in the home fries. So meat eaters (5 stars) you get bonus sausage in your home fries.

This was a nice little suprise to find. I moved to Boulder 4 years ago and never really knew what this place actually was. Glad I found out. This is THE breakfast place to take guests, ie visitors to Boulder!
The food is like going to New Orleans and having an authentic southern breakfast! Homemade jam, buttermilk biscuits!
You will not leave this place hungry, but wanting to take a nap (and wondering how you are going to burn off the calories later!).

Pros: Authentic and homemade food. Great atmosphere off the beaten path.

Cons: Must be patient to get a table. VERY busy on the weekends in the summer.

The first experience I had eating creole food was at Lucile's. It was a delicious introduction to eating New Orleans style dishes. It definitely was not my only meal there. Lucile's is located in a refurbished Victorian house. It is a family establishment with an unique atmosphere.

The food at Lucille's is always good, aside from an excessive fondness for cilantro which doesn't belong in creole food. The ambience unfortuantely doesn't match. Indoor, the tables are packed together and it is always stuffy and incredibly noisy. They pretend any table that seats 4 is a "community table". A community table that seats a large number of people can be an interesting social experience . If all you want to do is have a quiet lunch with a friend and the only outdoor table available seats 4, the arrogant and offensive insistence of the stat that they could seat some strangers at the table seriously detracts from the dining experience and it really is miserable if they actually do it. It is too obvious that their intent is just to pack as many diners in as possible without regard to the actually dining experience .

I am a local and Lucile's is in the top five. Its home setting, location, and food can't be beat. It can get crowded though since it is small. It's worth the wait.

Being a Louisiana native who left well before the hurricanes, this is the closest you will get to a real Cajun/Creole breakfast outside of my wife's kitchen. There is a wait on week-ends even if you go early but the wait is worth it. They have truly captured the flavors and spices of Louisiana cooking.

I am now living on the east coast, and my friends & I were talking about Mardi Gras coming up, and it made me really miss living in Boulder & going to breakfast at Lucille's! This restaurant is one of the best breakfast places anywhere. Great beignets & chicory coffee! Well worth the wait on a weekend day.

New Orleans is the best breakfast city in the world. Every restaurant, even a dive, can usually serve a decent plate of eggs dressed with hollandaise in some variation. Lucile's is a gem for a great morning meal. The beignets are as good as Cafe du Monde on Jackson Square, fresh and hot. The preserves are homemade, and the chicory cofee hot and bracing. The servings are enormous. The eggs sardou are excellent, with a huge serving of creamed spinach and tasty shrimp. The red beans are as good as you'll ever eat, tender and cooked down into a near paste, thick with slow cooked meat they way they're supposed to be. Lunch special on Monday is genuine N'awlins barbecued shrimp, maybe the best thing to eat on earth. Only drawback is the old house gets a bit crowded and loud, and I'm not a fan of the biscuits.

If you are looking for a great big plate of cjun yummies, Lucile's is the place to go. From beneits to biscuits and gravy better than Grandma's, you can't lose. For a real treat, try a hot cup of chicory coffee to top off your meal.

Don't just order bacon and eggs - take advantage of the unique dishes. The flavor combinations will impress you! Great non-corporate atmosphere and attentive staff. My favorite pick = eggplant/eggs/benedict dish, cajun potatoes, homemade biscuit w/preserves, strong black coffee. What a fantastic combo!

When you can't get to New Orleans, get your New Orleans fix at Lucille's! A rare find in Colorado is Beignets and Cafe Au Lait for breakfast or brunch, but treat yourself to this New Orleans classic at Lucille's. Friendly staff helps make your visit a pleasant one.

I've always loved Lucille's. It sits in a little house in Boulder, and has a lovely little porch. Breakfast is NOT your typical greasy spoon fare (so if you're craving good ol bacon and eggs, head over to the Village Coffee Shop instead!). Enjoy a great variation on the typical french toast, yummy spicy sausages and a quaint setting.
