We returned again for breakfast. Again, great food and service. This is a very clean place. The wait staff is friendly and many are bilingual.

First visit and it is a big, bright, friendly space. We were a group of 8 and all thoroughly enjoyed the various breakfasts. The service was excellent and the prices very reasonable. I will certainly return!

Seven of us went for lunch and we all had something different. Everyone thought their food was delicious. I had the Guacamole and tortilla chips which was delicious, and the Poblano Corn Chowder which was wonderful. My husband and another person had sandwiches which were very good. One person had the house special pizza and raved about it. Yet another... More

Lukumbe is out of the way unless you are going to Costco. The wait staff is very efficient, the rest rooms are clean and the food is great. There is a large play area so expect children.

Perhaps the best fajitas I've ever eaten. A friendly, comfortable, fun place for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Great waiters. Went there with a large group - perfect for conversation and dining.

We certainly had high expectations but the place fell short somehow. While the molecular smoothies are spectacular, the food was just ok. The Milan Sandwich was overcooked and the Pizza should have stayed a little longer in the oven. The service was good, very friendly servers. They should do something about the flies and the music. We had to listen... More

We enjoy visiting Lukumbe a couple of times a month for their great salads and sandwiches. When ordered as an entree the salads are more than enough to satisfy anyone. the sandwich selection has some great choices and they do offer a pick two if you would like a half salad and half sandwich. They have fresh fruit juices, smoothies,... More

We go here often. The service and atmosphere are lovely. The food, esp. at breakfast is great...except for the bacon. It's terrible, probably Turkey, and often clumps. I still order it, hoping for a change. A hint: If ordering the luscious oatmeal, ask for the milk on the side.
