Packed on weekends but worth the wait if you have time. This is a small southern/Creole restaurant in a small converted house. There are about 5 around Colorado. I think the original is in Boulder and the Longmont one is the third one from about 1996. The Chicory coffee is good and the Beignets well done. Another standard is their... More

Best place in Longmont for breakfast, brunch. Consistent quality, decent prices! Be prepared to wait on the weekends because of the crowds.

Had breakfast at this cafe! It is in a house that has been made into a cafe! Had a great meal! Our waiter was exceptional! Great food! Great service!

They serve Friday and Saturday night dinners that are delicious as well as reasonable. The dairy breakfasts are just as good and priced right as well. The food is southern style, not like any other in town.

I met friends here for brunch while visiting CO. It was busy and the wait was about 30 minutes. As another reviewer said, they won't seat incomplete parties so even if you are on the list and they call your name, you won't be seated unless everyone in your party is there. This is a busy, crowded and loud restaurant... More

Lucile's has what is frequently missing at weekend brunch settings. Incredible food....but u pay the price , it expensive not for the kids. Take that special person and make a reservation. Week day lunches provides large selection of classics, from red bean and rice to all your favorites shrimp creole dished.

Very good brunch in a fantastic atmosphere. Love dining in the old house. It gives you nostalgia while eating some delicious poached eggs

I have to admit that I am not much of a breakfast person, but I never miss an opportunity to have either breakfast or brunch here. The staff is always nice, and the food is fabulous! The place is almost always packed, so don't be surprised if you have to wait for a table. And a helpful hint....they won't seat... More

Even if it weren't in an old 19th century house, this place would reek of charm. The breakfast menu stays on through lunch, and the Eggs Pontchartrain was just amazing. Thanks Rolly!

I don't do well with loud crowded restaurants, so I generally avoid going to Lucile's. However, my friend really wanted to go, so I gave in. We were crowded into their front room, but had a nice conversation with the table next to us (don't go here if you want to have a private conversation!). As usually, the biscuits were... More
