Vegetarians Beware! – 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.
One of the best breakfasts in Boulder – 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!).
good food but lacks ambience except for the outdoor seating area – 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 .
best creole breakfast – where else can you get pan fried trout and bernaise over poached eggs. with great homefries and homemade spicy ketchup. atmosphere in house is great and server was fantastic. great spiced tea. the boulder location was better than the longmont spot which is in a house also. just aliitle tweaking on the poached eggs and service. also had the cajun breakfast with the redbeans ...awesome. many choices on menu.always a stop when in boulder.
Do it – 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.
The andouille Po' Boy is amazing. As is everything on the menu. The have fantastic orange juice as well. There is always a crowd on the weekends, so plan on a bit of a wait. It is my favorite breakfast place in town!
Perhaps the most popular brunch spot in town, this Southern-style eatery is well worth the wait. – In Short
Operating out of an old house, this small Creole and Cajun breakfast institution has been a Boulder favorite for years. Although Lucile's does serve lunch, breakfast is the specialty--and it's popular; expect up to an hour wait on weekends. A favorite menu item is beignets--a sort of doughnut topped with powdered sugar. Eggs Sardou combines poached eggs with creamed spinach and Gulf shrimp. Light options are limited--even rice pudding porridge is topped with cream.
Best Cajun Breakfast – 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.
Great breakfast! – 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.
A great find – 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.
