4. Breakfast at Lucile’s

Luciles Creole Cafe

Located at the southeast corner of Meldrum and Magnolia you’ll find a Fort Collins breakfast institution called Lucile’s Creole Cafe.  For an eggs benedict connoisseur like myself Lucile’s is mecca.  There’s a myriad of eggs benny style dishes but my favorite is Eggs Pontchartrain: Fresh pan fried mountain trout, poached eggs, sauce bearnaise; served with grits or potatoes and a buttermilk biscuit. $10.15

Other things to love about Lucile’s:  Beignets which are homemade New Orleans style donuts, served hot!  They’ll change your life. Oh,  and you’ll have plenty of incredible jams at your table to slather those beignets with. I also love their strong coffee. Try it with Chicory (an herb) which makes for an authentic cup of Big Easy style coffee.  If you go on a weekend morning prepare for a wait time but there’s plenty of  interesting New Orleans memorabilia on the walls to keep you occupied.   Another cool thing to note: Lucile’s recently purchased a farm in Niwot where they’ll be growing organic produce for their 4 locations (also in Denver, Longmont and the original Boulder location).Lucile's Creole Cafe, Fort Collins
